Practice your SOLIDWORKS design skills in this project-based course on modeling motorcycle engine parts.
(musical chime) - [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Leon van den Heever and welcome to motorcycle engine modeling in SolidWorks. In this course, we will look at modeling various motorcycle engine components, with the intent of achieving a final assembly the same as we see in this picture. The goal of our project is to practice various modeling techniques, better understand the commands we use, and why we do things in a certain way. We will do some basic equations, make use of configurations, and finish up with some bottom-up assembly design.
We will start off at an easy pace, with the intent of speeding things along a little to give you practice at improving your modeling efficiency. This project series is geared at intermediate users of SolidWorks, and it is accepted that you have already worked through the 2014 Essentials training by Gabriel Corbett found at Lynda.com, and some additional practice after will also help. Now with that, let's get on with improving our modeling skills in SolidWorks.
