                                   What is SolidWorks?
                                           SolidWorks is design automation software.

                                           In SolidWorks, you sketch ideas and experiment
                                           with different designs to create 3D models.

                                           SolidWorks is used by students, designers,
                                           engineers and other professionals to produce
                                           simple and complex parts, assemblies and
                                           drawings.

                                           An assembly contains two or more parts.

                                           In an assembly, parts are referred to as
                                           components.

                                           Mates are relationships that align and fit
                                           components together in an assembly.

                                           Components and their assembly are directly
                                           related through file linking.

                                    General Drawing Rules – Views
                                            The general characteristics of an object will
                                            determine what views are required to describe its
                                            shape.

                                            Most objects can be described using three
                                            properly selected views.
                                                   Sometimes you can use fewer.
                                                   However, sometimes more are needed.

                                    Design Table Overview
                                            Design Tables are used to create different
                                            configurations of a part.

                                            What is a Configuration?
REPRODUCIBLE




                                                   A configuration is a way to create a family of similar parts
                                                   within one file.
                                                   Each configuration represents one version of the part.

                                            Design Tables automatically change the
                                            dimensions and features of an existing part to

                                           A Revolve feature is created by rotating a 2D
                                           profile sketch around a centerline.

                                           The profile sketch must contain the centerline.

                                           The profile sketch cannot cross the centerline.

                                   There is a better way to sketch a centered square:
                                   1. Sketch a rectangle.
                                   2. Sketch a centerline from
                                      corner to corner.
REPRODUCIBLE




                                   3. Relate the centerline to the
                                      origin with a Midpoint
                                      relation. This keeps the
                                      rectangle centered.
SolidWorks 2001 Teacher Guide




                                   4. Add an Equal relation to one horizontal and one
                                      vertical line. This makes the rectangle a square.
                                   5. Dimension one side of the square.

                                           For example, when you copied Sketch3, the

                                           Therefore, Sketch4 is underdefined.
