Improve your top-down or in-context assembly design skills using a "skeleton modeling" strategy and SOLIDWORKS.
- [Voiceover] Hi my name is Leon van den Heever and welcome to the series of modeling a cabinet in Solidworks. In this series we will take a project-based approach on creating this cabinet using in context or otherwise known as top down assembly modeling design techniques. Our focus in the series is not on specific modeling tools but rather the technique of achieving our brief and our design goals. Learning Solidworks is not only about learning the commands available but also putting that acquired knowledge to use.
This being a modeling project we will model our cabinet from start to finish, giving you the opportunity to practice your existing skills, but also to explore different approaches to broaden our skills for relevant designs. I'm looking forward to going through this series with you so lets get started with modeling a cabinet in Solidworks.
- Setting up the model and adding components
- Creating the main structure of the cabinet
- Modeling the door
- Building the drawer
- Testing the model
