SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Blade Tutorial

Picture-RegularBlade: The sketch for the thin-feature is oriented so the Flat Pattern is parallel to the Top Plane. The interior is stamped out to reduce the amount of material that needs to be removed during the grinding operation. The fillet tool will round the corners and the Mirror tool is used to mirror the pivot-tab and the corner fillets. The grinding operation is used to create the sharp slicing edges.
