What you will learn
In this tutorial we will go over how to create basic parts and a simple assembly using SolidWorks.
You will be introduced to SolidWorks and how it is used in engineering design. You will see how to create and work with sketches, the most basic element of any design. Next, we will cover how to use the sketches to create and control features which are in turn used to create parts. You will then learn how to use parts to create assemblies and how to control the motion of parts relative to each other.
Most importantly, you will become familiar with the software so that you will have a set of skills which may then be used to explore other tools which are available in part and assembly creation.
