SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Handle With Overmold Tutorial

Picture-RegularHandle With Overmold: This part uses a surface extrude with draft to ensure the correct draft angle at the parting line, which is the right plane on this part. A boundary surface is created from the edge of the Control Grip Fade surface and the draft helper surface. A surface fill is used to cap the top half and bottom half of the handle. The Combine feature with the subtract option is used to create the pockets in the handle for the overmold.
