Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Goodbye, part of Modeling a Motorcycle Engine with SOLIDWORKS.
- We'll that brings us to the end of our project and I've enjoyed very much to showcase some of the techniques used in the SolidWorks modeling process and workflow. I set out to show you a number of commands and strategies without making the lessons too repetitive. And when similar processes were needed to complete our design I added the models for you. I've also left it to you to complete on your own some of the task for additional practice. Take the time to look at the parts I provided and with the great tools SolidWorks offers step through them to see how I approached each design.
We did not cover it in this course, but do a command search for part reviewer and use that to study other people's designs. Note this tool is, however, only for parts. Hope you have enjoyed this project and that you have been able to improve your skills during the process. Take the time needed to go through the videos again either as a whole or selectively where needed to reinforce the topics and commands covered. Beyond this they are additional SolidWorks topics here at Lynda.com that will assist your SolidWorks growth and I encourage you to take a look at them.
There is no better learning though then doing a project of your own. As you will inadvertently be presented with challenges specific to what you are trying to achieve. I encourage you to do this as soon as you are comfortable with the commands that we have covered. Again it has been my pleasure doing this project series for you and I wish you all the best with your SolidWorks modeling moving forward.
