Learn about how you can save the imported geometry as a part or as an assembly, depending on your design intent.
- [Instructor] When dealing with importing geometry…in SOLIDWORKS, it's important to understand the difference…between solid bodies and surface bodies,…and then what you can do to manage and move in between…the two styles.…Here you see I've created a box just for this exercise.…Very simple, just a boss extrusion with a sketch.…Now going down this feature tree, I'm going to unroll…the rollback bar.…The first thing that I did was use the delete face feature.…So you can see here that it simply just picks a face…and deletes it.…
Now, I've gone from a solid body to a surface body.…The way to think of this is just five surface planes.…They've made up the geometry of my box.…Now let's say I wanted to add to this geometry.…Let's roll our bar down some more…and see what I've done here.…So on top, I've added a surface extrusion,…a very simple process that works just like extruding,…a boss.…We just make a sketch, and extrude,…using the surface features.…
I've also made a surface plane.…Similar again, just simply make a sketch,…
