There are a lot of options available when modeling in SolidWorks while applying sketch entities, features, and assemblies. New options in SolidWorks are frequently added as enhancements to the program, while existing options are sometimes just plain overlooked. In these lessons, we'll slow down and look again or look anew at some of these options and learn what they do, how they work and when to apply them. Software required: SolidWorks 2012 and higher.
Introduction and Project Overview Hi everyone, My name is Chris Scarlett. I'm a certified SolidWorks professional with 14 years of experience teaching to college students and utilizing various CAD programs including autoCAD, Revit Architecture, and SolidWorks. Also provide design and prototyping services and training use in SolidWorks for various clients in our area, plus enjoy working on my own design projects. I expect that you will find my tutorials to be as effective, instructive, and packed full of information as my online lectures are. And what you will learn from this tutorial in the creation of our press frames support assembly is a reexamination of the application of various options associated with some of our more commonly used modeling methods in SolidWorks associated with sketching, creation of features, and Madison assemblies. We will look at options associated with mass properties, coordinate systems, the hole wizard, slot and polygon sketch entities, linear patterns, and American pundits assembly feature, plus more. By going beyond the basics, you will gain the knowledge on how, when, and where to apply these options to your own projects. I'm excited to work with digital tutors and share these techniques with you. So let's get started with our first lesson.
