Sketch and loft between two sketch profiles to create a sheet metal part. Understand the requirements for the sketch profiles and the loft feature. Sketch the profiles for a lofted sheet metal part. Understand the requirements for a lofted sheet metal part. Set the thickness and bend line options.
Enter measurement data directly in the SOLIDWORKS Inspection project and compare them with the part specifications: Enter measurements. Quickly identify defects with color-coded information. Export an inspection report that inclodes color-coded data.
It is important, when creating an inspection report, that the items are ballooned in the correct order. Also numbering schemes can help quickly identify characteristics: Change the order of the characteristics. Define balloon sequences. Manually change a balloon number.
Use sketch relations and dimensions to fully define a sketch. Understand the status of a sketch, either under defined, fully defined, or over defined. Evaluate a sketch to determine why it is under defined.
Use automatic sketch relations to capture design intent as you sketch a profile. Identify the icons that appear on the cursor to signify automatic sketch relations. Create a sketch profile and add automatic sketch relations as you sketch.

Use the New Contain Area command on an operation to restrict toolpaths to a specific area. Copy the face mill operation containing the avoid areas and delete the avoid areas from the copy. Create contain areas on the copied face mill operation using the 2D sketches in the part. Generate a toolpath for the copied face mill operation. Examine the contain areas of the face mill operation.
Use the New Avoid Area command on an operation to designate an area not to be machined. Create avoid areas on a face mill operation using the 2D sketches in the part. Examine the avoid areas by expanding the face mill operation.
