Learn how to make unique parts inside an assembly in SOLIDWORKS to bridge between multiple parts, or to make things that fit unique openings such as inspection openings in aircraft or machines. This course, SOLIDWORKS Advanced - Top-Down Design, will teach you techniques to make those "bridge" parts (called cover plates) easily. First, you'll learn to associate an existing part to another part in an assembly to make a perfect fit. Next, you'll learn how to modify an existing part and making it virtual so it can be changed radically, without altering the original part or its drawing. Finally, you'll learn how to insert a new part to make a virtual part or external part that does the job, and some great tips to prevent losing associations with changes. Software Required: SOLIDWORKS 2016.
