Top 10 SolidWorks Interview Questions and Answers

Skill-Lync

SolidWorks Interview Questions

Mechatronic systems are designed entirely using SolidWorks. It is used for project management, planning, visual ideation, modelling, feasibility research, and prototyping. 

Let's first learn the features of this application:

  • It facilitates CAD design that is simple yet attractive.
  • Users take advantage of the CAD library and templates for increased efficiency.
  • SolidWorks implements automation and design reuse to hasten the process.
  • You can monitor costs in real time by using cost estimation tools. Interference checks can aid in the early detection of potential risks.

SolidWorks Design Engineer Interview Questions: 

  • How does SolidWorks Electrical manage data?

Each project in SolidWorks Electrical has its unique ID number, which may be used to locate the project's connected database. For instance, the database for a project in the SolidWorks Electrical Project Leader with the ID number 112 is known as "new project data 112." 

The processing time is significantly reduced by having a separate database for each project. Additionally, in the event of a critical object failure, only one project is affected, protecting the integrity of the vast majority of the program's data.

  • What experience do you have with FEA analysis in SolidWorks?

 I have one year of experience using the FEA analysis tool within SolidWorks. During this time, I have successfully used SolidWorks FEA to analyse static, dynamic, and thermal stress in various components and assemblies. In addition, I have used SolidWorks FEA to design and optimise components for specific load cases and to optimise assemblies to meet structural requirements. 

  • How does SolidWorks Visualise operate?

You can create amazing lifelike renderings of 3D CAD models using SolidWorks Visualise (formerly the software was referred to as Bunkspeed), a package of standalone software tools that combines cutting-edge rendering technology with visual design-oriented features and workflows.

Two packages are available for SolidWorks Visualise products:

  • Standard 
  • Professional
  • SolidWorks costing tool - what function does it serve?

The application helps design engineers make decisions based on manufacturing costs and helps manufacturers create bids for clients. A detailed cost breakdown and the new, updated cost are immediately displayed every time you make a design change. Cost reports can also be generated automatically. You may assign members to items and services (users).

  • Explain DFMXpress

DFMXpress is an analytical method that confirms the manufacturing feasibility of a SolidWorks part. We can discover design faults that may increase manufacturing costs or obstruct fabrication by using DFMXpress.

Advanced Interview Questions for SolidWorks Design Engineer

SolidWorks Interview Questions and Answers

  • Why should the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) be incorporated into the design process?

By including Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) in the design process, we can understand how manufacturing, location, and material choices affect a design's environmental impact. 

Using several parameters that we select, SolidWorks Sustainability conducts a detailed review of all the stages of a designer's life.

  • Can you explain the applicability of TolAnalyst?

TolAnalyst is used to analyse tolerance, determining how dimensions and tolerances affect individual parts and assemblies. 

Professionals utilise the TolAnalyst tools to do "worst-case" tolerance pile analysis on assemblies. After applying dimensions and tolerance levels to the parts and components in an assembly using the DimXpert tools, TolAnalyst tools are utilised to leverage that data for stack-up analysis.

  • What purposes does SolidWorks MBD serve?

One seating for SolidWorks interview drawing must expect this question. The SolidWorks MBD offers 3D PMI definition capabilities using DimXpert and benchmark dimensions. 

Using SolidWorks capabilities like annotation views, dynamic viewing of annotation planes, and 3D views, 3D PMI can be arranged in an organised, findable way.

SolidWorks MBD generates output files in 3D PDFs and eDrawings in addition to the native SolidWorks file formats.

  • What simulations can be performed using SolidWorks?

SolidWorks Simulation provides simulation solutions for frequency, linear and nonlinear static, thermal, buckling, pressure vessel, fatigue, linear and nonlinear dynamic, drop test, and optimisation analysis.

You can address complex issues when designing quickly and precisely with the help of SolidWorks Simulation. SolidWorks Simulation is offered in two bundles: SolidWorks Simulation Professional and SolidWorks Simulation Premium, to satisfy your analysis needs.

  • What is the major difference between AutoCAD and SolidWorks?

SolidWorks and AutoCAD are popular tools used by mechanical engineers. AutoCAD is a drafting tool primarily used for 2D and 3D drawing. SolidWorks offers additional features like 3D modelling, parametric drawing, simulation and rendering.

Conclusion

SolidWorks, one of the best CAD and CAE programs available, has several features that assist engineers in designing and simulating new components or parts. Learning this one tool can help you land your dream job as a design engineer.
