SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Gasket Tutorial

Gasket: Note the use of relations within the sketch. It’s fully defined and with limited dimensions.Also, all model dimensions, notes, and reference dimensions were added into the part for use with the drawings. Spending some more time on the model dimensions and then using Insert Model Items in the drawings helps reduce duplicate effort and allows all design intent to be documented right with this sketch.
