Solidworks For The Sheet Metal Guy - Course 2: Hole Patterns And Notches
Editorial Review Holes, patterns, and cutouts occur frequently in sheet metal parts and their creation is crucial to modeling these parts. "SolidWorks for the Sheet Metal Guy - Course 2: Hole Patterns and Notches" shows numerous methods to create the commonly used holes, punching shapes, and patterns. Learn how to create line, grid, arc, and BHC patterns. Maintain design intent of a hole pattern using a Fill Pattern. Learn how to use and customize the SolidWorks Design Library, allowing you to create and use standard shapes and even your own forming tools and special shapes for use on all your SolidWorks sheet metal parts.

Introduction To Solidworks
Introduction To Solidworks
SolidWorks is a powerful 3D modeling program. The models it produces can be used in a number of ways to simulate the behaviour of a real part or assembly as well as checking the basic geometry. This tutorial guides you through construction of the model steam engine shown here. First you'll learn the basics of creating solid features needed to build the major functional parts and assemble them. In later sessions you'll generate engineering drawings and experiment with animation and "Ëœphoto-realistic' rendered views too. This should give you the knowledge needed to create more complex designs as you explore the enormous functionality of SolidWorks. Make sure you try the tutorials and other help topics under the Help menu. It's easy to learn how to use SolidWorks fully by following the tutorials supplied with the program.
