Scavenger hunts has the potential to yield prizes. In this hypothetical example we have found a
simple colored egg as shown below
In order to display our prize we have crafted a wooden
box to frame the egg
An assembly is created fitting the egg inside the box to show a preview
of how the finished display box will look like.
However once an assembly is created, you may use a
SolidWorks assembly evaluation tool called Interference Detection to determine
whether there is any interference between the egg and the box. i.e. does it fit?
Select the Evaluate tab> Interference Detection
Once the assembly is selected, click “calculate”
SolidWorks has determined that this assembly has
interference and has highlighted it in our model.
This simple checking tool has highlighted a design flaw
allowing us to make modifications in the design phase which has less impact on
the product as opposed to after the part has been manufactured, saving us
A quick modification of the inside dimension from 100mm
to 110mm is applied to our box.
Now, we run our second interference check for
verification and indeed the box is of correct size. This box will now properly display our prize
