This module gives an overview of how SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design can be used in the conceptual phase of a design process. Create free form models from concept sketches. See how concept photographs can be used as the basis of a model.
This module shows how sketching works in 2D and 3D as well as how to use inference lines and the triad. Create planes and 2D sketches. See how parent child relations work in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. Use triads to manipulate sketch geometry. Add constraints to control sketch entities.
This module covers CV splines which allow for continuous curvature and are ideal for smooth and robust curves. Make use of CV Splines in SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design. Create splines using polygon constraints and curvature constraints.
This module shows some of the Concept Sketch tools available in SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design. Draw up designs with the fluidity of pencil and paper sketches. Edit Concept Sketch geometry using erase and delete functionality. Convert concept sketches to useable sketch geometry with the Convert tool. Merge sketch entities together using the blend tool.
Learn how Concept Sketching in SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design can be used to sketch directly onto a curved surface. Sketch directly onto a curved surface. Use the curved sketch to extrude or cut. Edit the original surface and watch the surface sketch and features update.
This module shows some of the basics associated with creating simple freeform shapes. Start with a predetermined shape and edit the shape during and after placement. Create 2D primitives based off of sketches and predetermined shapes. Use sketches to make 3D primates using the revolve command.
Discover how to create simple freeform, sub divisional shapes using SOLIDWORKS Industrial Design. Create and place free form sub divisional surface shapes into the graphics area. Edit the size and basic dimensions of the free form shape.
Understand the difference between starting a sketch on a plane or planar face. Create the first 2D sketch profile on a reference plane. Create additional 2D sketch profiles on planar model faces of the part.
