SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Sand Castle Bucket Part 1 Tutorial

Sand Castle Bucket Part 1: Since today is the first official day of summer, I am celebrating by posting a 2-part sand castle bucket set this week.

The sand castle bucket demonstrates the usefulness of a layout sketch to control features. Since the product is used as a mold, the part initially models the volume of sand the mold would create then uses ”shell outward” to create the part.

Learn more on how this part was created by downloading the first file below! Check back on Wednesday for the second bucket design!
