Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of SOLIDWORKS: Sheet Metal Design.
If you're a premium member of lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. If you download the exercise files to your desktop, or anywhere else in your file system, when you open the file, you'll see the file structure listed from Chapters one through eight. If you open any one of the chapters, you'll see the files used in that chapter. If you go to chapter two, for instance, you can see each movie has a corresponding start file. Or if you don't see a start file there we're starting with a blank document. If you see it ending with a dot fin, that means it's a finished part at the end of the movie.
If you look at the higher level chapters, like for instance chapter seven. We have assemblers who are working on and each one of those assemblies is located inside of a folder named after the movie title. If you're not a premium subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files. But you can follow along from scratch with your own assets.
