Create several types of derived drawing views and understand the unique characteristics of each view type. A derived drawing view is created by referencing an existing drawing view. Create a projected view by folding off an existing drawing view. Project a view normal to a selected edge to create an auxiliary view. Show a portion of a view at an enlarged scale using detail views. Create a drawing view relative to planes or planar faces in the model. Focus on a portion of a drawing view by cropping and hiding the unwanted entities. Shorten an existing drawing view using broken views.

Use bill of materials (BOM) tables to call out the components of an assembly. Bill of materials can be modified in many ways and new table templates can be generated to save customizations. Tabulated bill of materials can list information about multiple configurations within the same table. Create a bill of materials for an assembly. Modify a bill of materials table to add and reorder column. Save a bill of materials as a template. Create a tabulated bill of materials.

Animations provide an extra visual representation of how an assembly can be put together, taken apart, and shows the order in which parts are added. Animations compliment exploded views incredibly well and help manufacturers and assemblers understand exactly how the components come together. Animations also serve as a great marketing tool, as they can show off the complexities of the design as well as how refined the final product is. In this lesson, an Animation will be created in SOLIDWORKS Composer by exploding additional components in this assembly.

Being able to incorporate SOLIDWORKS Composer files into a Word document or a PDF gives more flexibility to share information with manufacturers and assemblers. Even if a user doesn’t have SOLIDWORKS Composer downloaded on their machine, incorporating an SMG file into a Word document or a PDF can be a way to communicate efficiently using Composer files. In this lesson, you will see how to link SOLIDWORKS Composer file into a Word Document and a PDF as well as show how different configurations can be loaded in the same document.

When edges of a part are too close to allow for fillets to be created properly, often making use of separate solid bodies can help. Separate features into separate solid bodies. Apply fillets to the individual bodies. Use the Combine command to add the bodies back together. Apply an additional fillet to the part to complete the model.

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.
