Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Sketching the flywheel, part of Modeling a Motorcycle Engine with SOLIDWORKS.
- We will be starting with the bottom end of our engine,…and in this video we will sketch out…the necessary contours for the extrusions…to block out our design.…First create a new part using the Part Import…from the My Template tab.…Save and name the file to a location of your choice.…I will name my file as 01<u>01</u>FlywheelSketch.…Saving up front is a good practice…and will allow us to simply do a keyboard Control-S…to save as frequently as we deem necessary.…
My preferred method of starting a sketch on a plane…is to left-click on the Relevant Plane icon…within the Feature Manager,…and then select the Sketch command…from the Context toolbar.…Feel free to use other methods covered…in the Essentials course if you prefer.…Now let's start a new sketch on the front plane.…I'm starting on the front plane since this is…the orientation I want my front view to be…when doing a drawing of this part.…Since this is our first feature,…the graphic view will automatically rotate…normal to our screen.…
Subsequent features will not rotate normal to our screen,…
