Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of SOLIDWORKS: Advanced Tools.
- [Narrator] 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 or anywhere you see fit. Go ahead and open up that folder, and you can see here I've got two chapters as well as the Templates that I've been using throughout the course. These are the Templates, and you're welcome to use them. If you don't want to or you have your own templates already pre-installed, feel free to use those. If you go back to the chapters and Chapter One, each individual folder here will have the corresponding files for the movies. Go ahead and open those up, you can see I've got the starting file for each one of those, some of the movies will have a starting condition and ending condition, if you'd like to open up the finished version of the file, you can look at the ones that end with a underscore, FIN.
Going back, if I look at Chapter Two, a lot of times we're working with the assemblies in here, and if you open up any one of these assemblies you'll see we have a top level assembly as well as all the parts that go into making that assembly, so you generally will only need to open it this top level assembly to get all the files you need. This course is setup more as a informative course versus interactive. You are, of course, able to download the files and play with them, or just apply some of these skills and these tools to whatever project you might be working on. If you're a monthly member or annual member of the library, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along from scratch or with your own assets.
