SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Hood Bird Ornament Tutorial

Hood Bird Ornament: This 50’s style hood ornament is a challenging part that has only a handful of flat surfaces.It was constructed mostly using surface features. There are only four extruded bosses in the entire part and three of those are bolts. Several advanced features are used to create this model including some rarely used features. This part takes advantage of symmetry to help speed up the process by creating only the right half of the part and then mirroring it about the Right Plane.
