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.

Learning Areas and Volumes
Learning Areas and Volumes
This lesson shows the importance of knowing an objects size in volume and area are practical things we use all the time. This lesson plan relates to actual circumstances. Students will receive mathematical practice in solving simple types of problems in everyday life. Knowing how many cubic feet of items there are to be moved can more efficiently be used to rent the right size of truck. This lesson provides reinforcement to the memorization of the simple formulas with areas and volumes and shows students how math relates to the real world. Students will learn how to draw simple 3 dimensional shapes of known sizes that can help demonstrate the truck requirements. Students will also see what size of truck and the estimated gas mileage as given on the rent-a-truck's web site. Contributed by Richard Williams, Nevada.
