Throughout these lessons, we'll learn all about SolidWorks' logic for parametric modeling. We'll talk about how to create a robust model to allow for downstream adjustments and how to use assemblies to drive geometry and create reference/base parts. Next, we'll discuss the difference between additive and subtractive modeling and where each are appropriate. Lastly we'll learn how to create multipart bodies that are seamlessly aligned as would be needed in co-molded plastic manufacturing. By the end of this tutorial, you'll have learned how to effectively create a parametric multi-body CAD model in SolidWorks. Software required: SolidWorks 2014.
