In this chapter, we are going to be covering part modeling.…Up to this point, we've learned about the interface, we have learned how to sketch geometry,…we have even learned a little bit about part modeling along the way.…Now we are ready to dive into the details.…On the screen is the part we are going to be creating throughout this chapter.…I am going to use my Visual Styles icon to enable part edges.…I have selected that from my Navigation bar which we added earlier.…But if you didn't add that, you can access it from the view tab, under the Appearance…panel, the Visual Styles button. All you do is simply select Shaded with Edges.…
This simply lets you see the edges a little more clearly and better understand the part.…On the left in the browser, you can see the features that have been built to create this part.…The browser is essentially a view into what you're seeing on the screen.…So, if I hover over Extrusion 1, it will highlight in the graphics window as well.…As you slowly work your way down the list, you can actually see how the part was built piece by piece.…
