Join Leon van den Heever for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Modeling a Cabinet with SOLIDWORKS.
- If you are premium member at Lynda.com, you will have access to the exercise files related to this series, so go ahead and grab them if you like. You certainly do not need to have these exercise files to follow along, in fact, the idea is that you would actually be constructing your own assembly as we do go through this series. If you have grabbed the exercise files, I've simply pasted the folder on my desktop, but if you actually go into the folder, you will see that I have structured the folders as per the lessons or the videos that we are going through.
However, note that the files that I've had to save within each of these folders has to be the complete assembly. Note that I have saved the assembly as "finished" after each of the session. Alright again, the idea is that you do actually follow along with your own. These are more there for reference purposes, so if we actually draw down a little bit further you'll see that slowly our assembly structure is growing. So again, I want you to follow along as we are going through this on your own assembly, but I have saved these there for you after each session, so that you can have a reference at least if you are finding issues with anything.
So feel free to use those as we go through the series, and I will see you then in the next session where we will just quickly talk about a few things before we get into the modeling.
- Setting up the model and adding components
- Creating the main structure of the cabinet
- Modeling the door
- Building the drawer
- Testing the model
