This course will demonstrate how to set up and design a complex SOLIDWORKS part while avoiding using surfacing as the base geometry to eliminate extra work such as knitting and forming solid geometry. The main tools that will be demonstrated are tools used to setup and create solid geometry and with time saving techniques to modify the solid geometry using surfaces that have been generated from the existing solid geometry. The use of geometry from external part files specific to working with solid bodies will be demonstrated as an advantage to using a solid body. The course will also demonstrate how to inspect and trouble shoot possible issues that may occur. Finally, the proper practices of utilizing created geometry for manufacturing purposes will be discussed.
