Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Your Sketches By CAPINC Applications Engineer, Laura Weismantel One of the ways you can save time while building a model in SolidWorks is to never model the same feature twice. There are many tools that can be used to achieve this objective, such as the patterning and mirror commands. Something else that can help you with the same objective is to reuse your sketch geometry instead of re-drawing same or similar geometry as you build your part. Popular techniques used to

Designing parts using the Top-Down assembly modeling technique can be extremely useful. If a component is designed with the “top-down” technique, this means it is born in the assembly environment and it is designed using references to other parts within that assembly. Parts that are designed “top-down” have the advantage of being able to update when related geometry in the assembly updates, much like features update in the part environment when other related features are changed. This can save a
