This video is an introduction to the current features to create solid geometry in SOLIDWORKS xDesign.
- [Instructor] After creating some initial sketch geometry,…we're going to want to go ahead and add some features.…So to do that, we're going to go down to the toolbar…and select the Features tab.…Now looking across this, there's many features here,…and we're going to cover these in two videos.…So starting at the beginning,…we have our reference geometry, which we can add in.…These include planes, axes, and coordinate systems.…They're pretty easy to use and essentially just ask you…to pick some references that exist already in geometry,…to assign where these features go.…
So if I select Plane, for example,…I'm going to select this top line…and this bottom line that exist in my sketch right now,…and you can see here I get a preview of a plane.…I'm going to hit the green checkbox,…and I've created a new plane…using those two lines as a reference.…I'm going to go ahead and hide that.…We can also do the same thing…to make an axis or a coordinate system.…Moving down to the next set of four features,…we have Extrude and Extrude Cut,…
