Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Assembly overview, part of Modeling a Motorcycle Engine with SOLIDWORKS.
- Up to this point we have modeled a number of parts…and used a variety of commands and techniques.…What we will turn our attention to next…is to assemble all our parts…into a SolidWorks assembly.…I've placed all the assembly parts…that we will be using in the assembly components…folder found in the lessons folder for easy access.…I have prepared additional models,…which we will be using during the assembly process.…Assemblies were covered in the introduction…to SolidWorks series found here at Lynda.com.…
And if you have not spent much time…in the assembly environment since working through…that series, it would be a good idea to…go through the relevant sections again.…For now, I want to note that what we do…in the assembly environment is to assemble parts…or other assemblies, which are…then referred to as "sub-assemblies."…These parts and sub-assemblies are created…in the Feature Manager in the same way as…Part Features; however, we can call any part…inserted into the assembly a "component."…Assemblies can have their own features,…
