This video explains the setting for SOLIDWORKS that will work best.
- [Instructor] When you're taking the SOLIDWORKS…certification exams, you're gonna be…creating a bunch of parts.…And most of those parts are gonna…have a few things in common.…And I've pre-established some templates…that have all the defaults already…set up for you, which will save…you a lot of time.…Go up here to click on New,…and notice here in the Default folder…for Templates, I have the…Linked in Part, Assembly, and Drawing.…And these are available in the…Exercise File folder.…Also, over here on the left,…I have this 1020 Steel in the…millimeter gram second unit system…as well as this 1060 Aluminum,…also in millimeter gram second.…
Click on Open, or OK.…It's gonna open a new part using…that default template.…Now over here on the left hand…side, you can see I already have…1060 Aluminum pre-selected.…If that doesn't happen to be the…material you need to use, make sure…you do update it over there before…you go forward with your part.…Because obviously you're going to…get the wrong values if you don't…have the right material.…
