SolidWorks Tutorial: Tumbler Project For Scouts and Students

The Boy Scouts just celebrated their 100 year anniversary and to celebrate with the help of Lemelson-MIT, they introduced the Inventing Merit Badge that promotes Boy Scouts working toward a new merit badge  rewarding innovation. To help out, SolidWorks is creating a series of video tutorials to help young students learn to take their creative energy and design great new products.  There are many former boy scouts that have become our employees and our customers and this is a great way to help young designers fulfill a dream. The first tutorial, SolidWorks for Students, takes you through:

  1. What is SolidWorks?
  2. Project Overview
  3. User Interface
  4. Tumbler Part
  5. Tumbler Drawing
  6. Tumbler Assembly
  7. Tumbler Sustainability

The SolidWorks for Students tutorials are applicable for all students starting the engineering design process. 

For the past three years, we have also supported Girl Scout projects in robotics and STEM initiatives.  To learn more about SolidWorks support for scouting go to
