SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Grill Tongs Tutorial

Grill Tongs: The tongs use a layout sketch to control the major dimension and shape of the part. This allows the designer to easily make changes to the model without any major rebuild errors. The tongs are modeled as a multi-body part to design the multiple parts that would be assembled to form the grill tongs. The flex feature is used in this model to evaluate the tongs in the closed position. Download the free part below to get started!
