SOLIDWORKS Tech Tip: Thickness Analysis Command

Do you know how to use the Thickness Analysis command in SOLIDWORKS?

This command is one of the most useful tools the software has to offer when designing plastic parts or castings. This is done by analyzing the thickness throughout the whole part then overlaying a colored gradient. If a point on a part is too thick or thin, this can be problematic; use this command to determine the thickness of each point to ensure your design is sound. To define what is considered too thick or too thin, use the “Analysis Parameters” group box to identify the limits. Watch the video below to learn more about the Thickness Analysis command in SOLIDWORKS!
