Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Modeling a Motorcycle Engine with SOLIDWORKS.
- If you are a premium member of the Lynda.com library you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. This files can be found on the exercise file tab on the main course page. The lesson files are divided by chapter, containing files for the relevant topics that we'll be covering. We also have an assembly components folder which we'll use in chapter three and then a completed assembly folder for my completed design which you can use for your reference. I've also included for you a My Templates folder which you can map to via SolidWorks option and file locations.
Simply add the path to the location and you should have access to them. You don't have to use them. Feel free to use your own or even the default templates will suffice. But note that I am working in a metric unit system in the series. Since I do provide completed models and assemblies during the series, the lessons' files would be of benefit for completion of the assembly and a number of the modeling videos. And with that, let's get to it and I'll see you in the next video.
