Description

A Multi-body part consists of multiple solid bodies that are not dynamic. It can contain a file with complete parametric information, and all dimensions and constraints are controlled on the sketch level. Best of all, it can only be one file to update with any required changes. In this course, Onshape: Multi-body Part Design, you'll create fast and intelligent assemblies with multi-body part modeling. First, you'll learn how to create multiple bodies with the extrude command. Next, you'll learn how to preform boolean operations to refine the shape of your bodies. Finally, you'll learn how to turn bodies into an assembly. After completing this project based course, you will be armed with a new arsenal to create powerful assemblies. Software required: A web-browser and Onshape.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, this is Jomarc, and welcome to Onshape: Multi-body Part Design. I am a mechanical design engineer and a CAD instructor to various companies and educational institutions with mechanic web. This Onshape course I will secure your understanding of the essential techniques to create a multi-body part design. Some of the major topics that we will be covering are, creating multiple bodies with the extrude command, performing Boolean operations to refine the shape of our bodies, and turn bodies into an assembly. By the end of this course, you will definitely appreciate the benefits of a multi-body part modeling strategy, and how it simultaneously fit in assembly creation. Join me as we all embark on this fun and learning experience with Onshape Multi-Body Part Design. Open up your favorite web browser, and let's get started.
