Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Use the Combine command, part of SOLIDWORKS Tips & Tricks.
- [Voiceover] In this example I'm gonna be showing you…how to use the Combine command…and going over a few of the tips and tricks…for making it work a little bit easier.…The first thing that I need is a multi-body part.…So you can see I have one body here…and over here under Solid Bodies…notice that there's just this first one.…Now I have this part right here…and I'm gonna go ahead and revolve that,…so go up to Features, let's go up to Revolve,…and I'm gonna go ahead and choose this Sketch number four.…I'm gonna revolve it around that central axis…and there's my part.…Now at this point here I wanna make sure…that I don't choose Merge result,…I actually want two separate bodies.…
So I'm gonna go ahead and uncheck that…and then click on OK.…Now I've got one body inside of the other…and this is pretty much exactly what the Combine feature…is designed to do.…I can remove this body here from this body here…or I can add them together…or I can find where they meet.…So let's go ahead and jump into that command.…Go under Direct Editing.…
