This video explains what a jog is and how it is used, and goes into common errors.
- [Instructor] In this example I'm gonna be showing you…how to create a basic jog feature inside…of the sheet metal package.…Now the first thing I want to look at is…under Sheet Metal you can see we have a Jog tool appear.…But before we jump into that tool…I wanna create a sketch which is gonna define…where that first bend is gonna happen.…So let's go ahead and choose this surface right here,…start a sketch, and let's go ahead and create a line…from one side, all the way over to the other side.…Once you have that line in there, let's go ahead…and add a dimension from that line…up to the top surface there.…Type in eight millimeters…and now we've got a basic line…on that surface.…
Now jump over to Sheet Metal, click on Jog.…And choose a fixed face, which is gonna be…this one right here.…And automatically I get a preview of my new jog feature,…pretty nice.…Now I can choose how I would like to create that…jog offset, in this case here I'm using blind.…I also have these other options here.…I can then type in the value here…
In this course, Gabriel Corbett prepares you to take the CSWPA-SM exam. Gabriel begins by covering the exam requirements and sharing testing techniques. He then dives into specific, relevant concepts that will refresh your knowledge and prepare you to pass the test, including how to work with edge flanges, miter flanges, hems, jogs, flat patterns, bend tables, and custom properties. He also shows how to build several of the parts from the sample exam, and takes you through building, modifying, and verifying a model.
