If you're a Premium member of Lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. If you download the files to the desktop, you can see them here. Double click on that. It opens up. I've got them arranged by Chapters one through six. Then, I have a folder here for templates. If you open that up, you can see I've got templates for parts, assemblies, and drawings all in here. You're free to use these for your own designs. And you can change them however you need. If you go back you can see each chapter is arranged by the individual movie titles, so one point two would be movie one dash two.
And if you go to like for instance chapter four you can see I've got individual sub folders here with all the individual files that we'll need for that movie. 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 with your own assets. So, let's get started.
