SOLIDWORKS Tech Tip: Intro to Sheet Metal

How do you create your sheet metal parts? Are you aware that SOLIDWORKS has an entire tool set dedicated to Sheet Metal parts? You can design a sheet metal part on its own without any references to the parts it will enclose, you can design the part in the context of an assembly that contains the enclosed components, or you can design the part within another part document in a multibody environment. Here’s my challenge to you – I want you to pick one of the ‘advanced specialist’ tool sets in SOLIDWORKS: Sheet Metal, Weldments, Surfacing, Mold Tools, or Drawing Tools, and I want to you begin a new journey. Think outside of your daily routines, and be the best SOLIDWORKS user you can be!

To learn more about SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal, head over to MySolidWorks and check out the Introduction to Sheet Metal training module. Good luck! As always, thanks for reading and happy learning!
