Learn how to use this Design Library element in a real-world scenario.
- [Narrator] Okay, so we're going to open up the Chapter 7 - Test, and we're going to drag and drop the library feature onto the face of the board, and green check, and we're going to locate it. So let's test it out. So you'll notice when I come over to the Awesome Hole patterns I don't see anything. Well, don't panic. Just click on Refresh, and it'll show up. Remember we created it outside of SolidWorks. We created it inside the FileUps board. That's why we have to hit Refresh in order to be able to see it.
So I'm going to drag and drop it onto the face. Notice that I can change the angle of rotation if I want to. Okay, place it. Right, there it is, you can see the block right there. I'm in sketch mode, so if I want to add dimensions, I can. And I locate it. Then I just come over to extrude to cut, say through all, green check, and I have the holes that I need to place my D sub nine connector.
