With the powerful design validation tools in SolidWorks, SolidWorks Simulation can save you time and money. You can easly subject your designs to the same conditions that they’ll experience in the real world. Raise the quality of your products while you reduce costs for live prototypes and testing.
Whether you’re new to simulation or a seasoned pro, you’ll find it easier than ever to:
• Build Better Products
• Optimize existing designs
• Improve product performance
• Implement fatigue analysis
• Avoid complex hand calculations
• Reduce weight and material cost

What do Buzz Lightyear, Boba Fett and The Rocketeer all have in common? All three are fictional characters that sport jetpacks and turn into high-flying stars. The characters also helped us dream of a day when mankind can fly without the confines of an airplane or helicopter –- a dream that is now a reality thanks to the Martin Jetpack.
Martin Aircraft, a SolidWorks customer, has designed the Martin Jetpack, the world’s first, practical jetpack to be used in military, search and rescue, and first responder markets, as well as for recreational purposes. Just like the well-known sci-fi characters, the average Joe now has the opportunity to take a safe, controllable, single-person flight, high up in the sky…. and it look good doing it. With PhotoView 360 rendering and SolidWorks eDrawings communications tools, Martin Aircraft is able to show cool-looking renderings of the jetpack design, as well as detailed engineering views of how it operates. Learn about other tools they used in the design and manuacturing in the recently published case study.
Martin Aircraft is making it possible for the masses to fly with a jetpack, but jetpack travel is not necessarily new. If you are a football fan, you are probably aware that the Super Bowl has a long history of using jetpacks – from Super Bowl I in 1967 toSuper Bowl XIX in 1985. The jetpacks were called “rocket belts” back in the day, but the concept remains the same – and it continues to generate intrigue and excitement. Will the halftime show of Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans feature a jetpack? We’ll have to wait until next February to find out!
Since the rocket belts morphed into the jetpacks we know today, who knows what’s next in the jetpack evolution. If you’ve seen the summer blockbuster, The Avengers, or any Ironman movie, it may be similar to what Ironman has to work with. Jetpack boots help Tony Stark shoot through the air to fight crime. From belts to boots, jet travel is certainly keeping things interesting!

Have you ever wanted to learn about new features in SolidWorks, but just didn’t have the time? We’re all busy these days, and devoting an hour ot more to a screencast or webinar isn’t always possible. So the brain trust here at SolidWorks put their heads together and came up with a new series of webinars that clock in at 22 minutes or less. That’s a full minute shorter than most of the cartoons my kids watch.
You can new one coming up by visiting the webinar page on SolidWorks.com. New ones will be added regularly. Right now, there are two you can take advantage of:
The Essentials of SolidWorks 3D CAD in 22 Minutes
SolidWorks 3D CAD is a comprehensive 3D design solution that enables you to create, validate, communicate, and manage your product designs. In this short webinar you will learn about SolidWorks 3D CAD tools and how these tools can be used to help you develop better products faster and more cost effectively.
Does ‘Thermal Comfort’ Ring a Bell? Discover SolidWorks Flow Simulation in 22 Minutes
Think getting the air flow pattern and temperature distribution in an environment quickly and simply is too hard? It’s not – we’ll show you how SolidWorks Flow Simulation helps engineers to predict and optimize airflow and comfort parameters in working and living environments. With Virtual fluid flow simulation, you can meet the daily challenges of predicting airflow patterns and thermal effects to asses thermal comfort parameters as well as maximize contamination control more confidently and productively than ever before.
