Learn about making a 3D sketch.
- [Instructor] For question number two of the sample exam,…it's asking us to build this structure right here…in a 3D sketch.…So you can see, it might be a little bit complicated…and only because you've got this 100 degree from the side,…you've got 100 degrees from the end.…Now, if you scroll to kind of the bottom…of the sample exam,…you can see that there's a bunch of issues,…or hints and tricks you might want to review…and some common errors you might want to see by…you know, creating a dimension or a 3D sketch…across a couple different angles…and how to get around that.…
So, let's go back up here, two,…and you can see we got to create this shape here,…and then we're going to create a weldment from it.…So, it's 1000 by 1700.…Let's go ahead and create this in SOLIDWORKS.…New, I'm going to use the aluminum part here.…Start there.…Now, instead of just starting with a sketch,…why don't we just create a solid which will be super easy…to create this shape from.…So, I'm going to click on sketch,…start a sketch on the top plane,…
Join Gabriel Corbett as he reviews the exam requirements, along with testing techniques and tips to make more effective use of your time. He refreshes your knowledge of fundamentals such as creating and saving weldment profiles, building sketches, trimming and extending weldments, applying corner treatments, and creating end caps and gussets. He also covers advanced weldment creation, profile alignment, and weldment cut lists. Last, but not least, he reviews questions from a sample exam and provides pointers for measuring parts correctly and verifying the unit system.
