SolidWorks is the world leader in 3D software for product development and design. Start creating manufacturing-ready parts and assemblies, as well as detailed drawings and bills of materials. In this course, author Gabriel Corbett shows how to create 2D sketches that will become the basis for your 3D models. You'll use the Extrude and Revolve tools to turn 2D sketches into 3D parts, then create more complex geometry with sweep and lofts. Then learn how to use the cut features to remove material and shape parts, and use mirroring, patterning, and scaling to modify parts. Next, you'll combine parts into movable assemblies and subassemblies. Finally, you'll create accurately annotated drawings, complete with itemized bills of materials that relate the final parts and assemblies to a manufacturer.
Hi, I'm Gabriel Corbett and welcome to SolidWorks 2014 Essential Training. SolidWorks is the world leader in 3D modeling software, used for product design and development. In this course, we'll look at the methods and tools for creating manufacturing ready parts and assemblies along with detailed drawings and bills of materials. We'll start with the basic sketch tools to create two dimensional sketches, that will become the foundation of 3D objects. Next we'll look at modelling 3D features by extruding or evolving sketches into 3D parts.
Followed by creating more complex objects using the Sweep and Loft Tools. Next we'll cover cut features, holes, and the Hole Wizard, to create uniform standard hole sizes, and that's just the beginning. We'll explore more advanced modeling techniques by using the Patterning, Mirror, and Equation Tools. Then we'll cover the best practice for putting parts together into assemblies and building robust structures. Finally, we'll see how to create drawings that relate the final parts and assemblies to a manufacturer, complete with an itemized bill of materials and drawing notes. Now, let's get started with SolidWorks 2014 Essential Training.
