If you're a Premium Member of the lynda.com online training library, you have access to the files used throughout this course. The exercise files are organized by chapter. If you go inside of a chapter, you will find each separate movie has its own subfolder. Inside that subfolder are the files used in that movie. So, for example, let's go inside 05_Assemblies, and then go into the movie 01 folder. In this folder, you will find an assembly file that shows the completed version of the exercise and all the parts required to follow along.
Also included in the exercise files is a completed version of the engine assembly for you to explore on your own time. If you don't have access to the exercise files, many of the exercise files start from a blank screen, so you will still be able to follow along.
