Throughout these lessons we will use SolidWorks robust sketching tools in the creation of a metal lathe. We'll use basic feature tools in unusual ways to understand that SolidWorks is very flexible in its performance. The revolve feature tool will be used extensively to show how versatile it is. We'll create an assembly using standard, advanced, and mechanical mates. And lastly, proper file management will also be discussed. Software required: SolidWorks Premium 2013.

Introduction and Project Overview
[Autogenerated] and hi, everyone. My name is Dave. You're asking I'm an instructor and support specialist at career and technical training. I provide custom, solid works training ranging from beginner to advanced levels. I bowled a certified solid works, professional advanced drawings and well meant certifications from solid works. In this course, we're going to use both basic and intermediate sketching and feature tools and solid works. I'll show you some out of the ordinary techniques in the use of some basic tools. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to use both basic and intermediate sketching tools and features. How to use different view styles to help in the creation of sketches. How to use simple and advanced make tools to create an assembly and see some of the variations in the use of basic tools. To give you a feel of how you can create some complex parts using simple methods, I'm excited to work with digital tutors and had the opportunity to provide you with tools to help increase your productivity in the design process. So let's get started with the first lesson
