Define an accurate 2D profile or sketch using Geometric and/or Dimensional Constraints. Geometric Constraints create and uphold relationships between sketch entities while Dimensional Constraints specify distances or angles between the sketch entities. Assign Geometric Constraints such as Horizontal, Vertical, Coincident, Perpendicular, Parallel, Tangent, etc. Create Dimensional Constraints with numeric values with labels. Manage Dimensional Constraints for edit, delete and create user-defined parameters.

Manipulate the 3D Model view properly to work on the geometry as intended. Use a variety of tools to enable rotating the model freely, updating the model view type and to add custom coordinates systems to get the right location and angle. View the 3D model at different angles such as Top, Bottom, Left and various isometric angles. Use the computer mouse or orbit command to freely pan, zoom and rotate the 3D model. Learn to view with different view types such as Wireframe, Hidden, Gouraud, Flat with Edges, etc. Setup custom coordinates systems with CCS defining based on a view or entity.

Create some very complex 3D surfaces or geometries by defining a mesh with custom contours and numerous editable points for better control and design. Create basic primitive mesh shapes as a starting point to the design. Generate individual mesh faces using 3D Face tool. Control a network of mesh points by defining an outer perimeter with the Edge Mesh tool to fill it in. Use the 3D Mesh command allowing to define the location of every point in a mesh.

Understanding the import process into SOLIDWORKS Visualize is essential to working efficiently, and can be controlled by both the import settings and the organization of the original CAD file. Learn the two most common import settings to setup the Visualize project for different workflows; one to make the model quick and easy to work with and the other to allow for live updates and more flexibility with the model grouping. Learn how to best prepare your CAD file for the desired Visualize experience. Understand how to efficiently import models into Visualize by selecting the appropriate Import Settings. Utilize CAD Live-Update for a seamless design process.

Add each of the six mechanical mate types to control the degrees of freedom of components when designing mechanisms. Mate a cylinder, plane, or point to a series of tangent faces with a cam follower mate. Limit the rotational movement between two components with a hinge mate. Move one component linearly to move another component rotationally with a rack and pinion mate. Add a pitch relation between the rotation of one component and the translation of another with a screw mate. Rotate two components relative to one another with a gear mate or a universal joint mate.

Model parts in the context of an assembly, using references to other components to complete the design. The design intent for new parts (sizes of features, placement of components in the assembly, etc.) comes from other components in the assembly. Build a virtual part in the context of an assembly by employing Top-Down assembly modeling techniques. Create features in the assembly context by referencing geometry in mating parts. Understand InPlace mates and external references. Identify external references in the FeatureManager design tree.
