SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Simple Surface Part 2 Tutorial


Surface2-RegularSimple Surface: This model is created using only surface body features and then it is turned into a solid using a thicken command. A Boundary Surface feature uses two sketches in one direction to create the desired geometry. An outside edge is created using offset entities to ensure that the overall shape can be modified and still maintain uniform wall thickness. The surface-knit feature “stitches up” four faces (two surface bodies) into one surface body. The thicken command adds thickness to the inside of the surface. Refer back to Simple Surface Part 1 for more examples.
