Grooves in SolidWorks

Weekly Productivity Enhancer Header

We here at SolidBox value productivity above all in our applications and of course, our hardware. Each week, we’ll be giving you a tip to help you enhance your productivity with SolidWorks specifically. Sorry, we can’t help you with the hours you spend on Youtube each week watching cat videos, but hopefully you can learn something to make your SolidWorks experience easier. This week we’ll be discussing how to use the Groove Tool to create Grooves in SolidWorks.

Not only does SolidWorks give you the most comprehensive functionality of any CAD software, but it also gives you a host of add-ons to make your designing experience as flexible and creative as you are. This week, we take a look at the Groove Tool that is part of the SolidWorks add-on simply called Toolbox. The Groove Tool gives you many built-in options to create a groove that contains either an O-ring or a retainer ring. This video walks you through the basics of the Groove Tool.
