Working With Parts
SolidWorks allows you to view 3d parts from all different angles. There are infinite ways to view an object, but engineers usually only concern themselves with 4 main views. You can see these views in the above picture of the green link. The main views are Side, Front, Top, and Isometric. For this tutorial you can open up any part in Solidworks. The tutorial will use the green link above to demonstrate, but any 3d part will work just as well.
