Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of SOLIDWORKS: Visualize.
- [Voiceover] If you're a premium member of the library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. Go ahead and download those files to your desktop and go ahead and open them up. Inside there you can see I have a chapter for each one of the chapters corresponding to the course. Down here at the bottom I have some extra assets like decals, logos and textures. As well as the original SolidWorks files that we're importing into the design. If you go back at a look at chapter 1, inside chapter 1.1 you can see here I have the SolidWorks Visualized file. As well as those same SolidWorks files that we're importing into SolidWorks Visualized.
Down here you see this TI-WD1-20, that is the top level assembly of the watch we're going to be working with throughout the course. Again, it has been added into this file already. But, if you want to add it in yourself and start from scratch you can definitely do that as well. If you go back a little bit here, you can see we have a folder for each one of the sub-chapters in that course. And I'm under exercise files here. At the very bottom we have some templates we use for the SolidWorks files. If you're going to be opening and working with those files, you can create new files using these templates if you'd like.
Or just use your own templates you have loaded onto your system. Also in here, we have a renders folder. And we have a few other renders that we've already created and just some sample content you can take a look at. Some of the individual images stacks and the videos. So definitely take a look at some of that stuff in that folder. And that's basically the layout for the exercise files for this course. If you're a monthly member or annual member of Lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files but you can follow along from scratch or with your own assets. Now, let's get started.
