Using SOLIDWORKS, we will use the "What's Wrong" dialog box to trouble shoot a part file. These errors will include extra sketch entities, broken references for dimensions, sketch relations, and planes. We will also troubleshoot issues with fillets. We will troubleshoot common issues in assemblies, which include wrong components being opened in the assembly, mate errors and alignment issues, broken references for in-context parts, and hole alignment issues. Design changes will also be made within the design intent of the part by editing sketches, moving and deleting faces, and adding draft. Software required: SOLIDWORKS 2016.
