Since vector graphics scale without distorting the image, they are very useful when trying to insert images into other documents, such as a PDF or a Word doc. Vector images also allow for a clean professional look for marketing purposes. In this lesson, you'll see detail views added to this exploded view and create a vector image of both of them.

Exploded views can be created in SOLIDWORKS Composer and are incredibly helpful when trying to show all the components used in an assembly, or for showing how to assemble, disassemble, or repair the assembly. Exploded views can also be used for other purposes such as showing off a design by a marketing team. In this lesson, an exploded view and detailing the individual components will be shown by adding labels to each part in the assembly.

It is common practice to update parts and assemblies, but in a SOLIDWORKS Composer file, it is difficult to make substantial design changes since it is not a native SOLIDWORKS CAD software. However, it is simple to update SOLIDWORKS Composer actors and assemblies. All you have to do is select the components, and then choose “Update”. This relieves the headache of needing to update everything externally in SOLIDWORKS. In this lesson, individual actors as well as the whole assembly will be updated to show the updating capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Composer.

Use surfacing techniques to create custom blends where fillets produce undesireable results. Remove unwanted faces from a model using the Delete Face command. Use Face Curves and sketches to create a trimming boundaries. Trim faces to form a clean boundary for the blend. Use the Filled Surface command to create a surface tangent to all adjacent faces. Use Knit Surface to combine the surface bodies in the model. Use Thicken to transform the surfaces into solid geometry.

Create face fillets to modify and repair imported geometry. Define the size and shape of the fillet using selected faces and edges instead of a constant radius value. Use options such as Curvature continuous, Constant width, Tangent propagation, and Hold lines to define the face fillet. Modify imported geometry using a face fillet. Ensure curvature continuity with faces adjacent to the fillet. Set a constant chord length of a fillet. Define a stopping edge, or hold line, for a face fillet.

Keep or eliminate features contained within the fillet region. Set the overflow type to determine how fillets behave when they are larger than the available space. Smooth corners where two fillets edges meet.

Create 3D sketches using the default coordinate system of the model to orient the sketch entities. Add relations and dimensions to constrain the size of the sketch entities. Use the on-screen feedback when sketching. Use planes to orient 3D sketch entities. Change the sketch plane by pressing the Tab key or by using a plane or planar face. Display multiple viewports to modify 3D sketch entities.

Copy and derive a sketch to use the original sketch more than once. A copied sketch is not related to the original, whereas a derived sketch changes if the original sketch every changes. Create a derived sketch that retains the same shape as the original sketch. Copy a sketch. Modify the position and dimensions of a sketch. Create a loft through three profile sketches.

Create a variable radius fillet where you set the radius value at selected vertices and control points. Also, you can set the radius to zero to force the fillet to converge to a point. Create a fillet where the radius varies along the selected edge. Modify the radius value at vertices or control points. Create zero radius fillets where the fillet must converge to a point.

Loft creates a feature by making transitions between profiles. A loft can be a base, boss, cut, or surface. By specifying constraints and connection parameters, the desired result can be achieved. Create basic loft feature between two profiles. Refine the shape with a centerline curve, end constraints, and connection points. Select loft profiles and connection points correctly.
