History-based modeling and the rollback bar


show more The SOLIDWORKS program provides a history bar to keep a timeline of earlier versions of a model design. In keeping the model development timeline, the history bar provides the ability to see previous changes. Basically, users can go back to an earlier design state with the ability to edit and add new features while in the rollback state. Using this training, you will learn how to perform history-based modeling with the rollback bar. show less

History-based modeling and the rollback bar

The history bar keeps a timeline of the work that you've done in building your design. We have the ability to roll back the bar to an earlier state of the model to make edits or add features. It's also a great way to learn SolidWorks by disassembling an existing model and see how it's created. Let's take a look. You can see here we have a fairly complicated model made up of quite a few features. At first look at this thing, you can see there's actually some pretty complicated geometry here. And you might not know exactly where to start when you're looking at a design like this. There's some features here that we'll be covering again in the future, but right now, let's go ahead and take a look and see how this model was originally created.

The history bar is kind of a sneaky thing in SolidWorks. There's nothing, really, that shows what it is or where it is, so you have to remember, it's this little blue line down here. So I have to click on this blue line, which ...
