Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Up and Running with eDrawings.
If you're a premium member of the lynda.com library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. These files can be found on the Exercise Files tab on the main course page. When you save the files, save them to the desktop or some place that's easily accessible. Go ahead and open that folder. And you'll see the chapters for the course. I'm going to open Ch1. You'll see the corresponding files listed in the folder. These files can be opened with a PC, a Mac, or the iOS. If you want to create your own eDrawing files, you will need SolidWorks installed, and that only installs on a PC.
If you don't have access to the Exercise Files, you can download samples from the Internet. (SOUND) If you go to edrawings.geometricglobal.com, click on the Gallery tab, you can download various sample files from there. Additionally if you go to the eDrawings website, you can click on the Samples tab to download assets from SolidWorks or click on Products and go over here from eDrawings for Mac to download the Mac samples. Click on this, download 'em, and you should be good to go. Additionally, you can follow along with your own assets. So let's get started.
