Throughout this SolidWorks tutorial we'll discuss how to utilize an in-context assembly design approach. This uses a sketch part on top of the feature manager tree to drive all of the parts and their associated features within the assembly. By the end of this SolidWorks training, you'll find it easy to create and manage generalized modeling relationships and modifications with fast updates and less opportunity for errors. Software required: SOLIDWORKS 2014 and higher.

Introduction and Project Overview
[Autogenerated] Hello, everyone. My name is Chris Scarlett. I'm a certified solid works professional with 14 years of experience teaching a college students and utilizing various CAD programs, including AutoCAD, Robert Architecture ER and solid works also provide design and prototyping service isn't training use in solid works. Various clans in area plus enjoy working on my own design projects expected. You will find my tutorials to be Justus effective, instructive and packed full of information as my online lectures are. What you will learn from this tutorial in the creation of a prairie windmill tower is not only the virtual construction of a vintage windmill tower, but an application oven in context model designed that incorporates for his automation features allowed for a quick update to the model and all the parts associated with it. We will be going through and going beyond the basics in this two Turo by working with various modeling applications and options, including the sketch block sketch colors to make our block standout configurations for both our part and the assembly, the whole wizard and the solar works toolbox for the insertion of pastors in our design. And of course, I will also be sure and give you some tips and tricks along the way. By going beyond the basics, you will gain the knowledge and how and when and where to apply these applications and options. Two year old projects. I am excited to work with digital tutors, ensure these tips and techniques with you. So let's get started with our first lesson.
