SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Stand Tutorial

Stand: This Split Line uses overlapping contours within the sketch to create two faces which will be used as profiles in the ‘Pod’ Loft. When unsuppressed, this Shell demonstrates a serious Shell error. If Verification on Rebuild is active, the Shell simply ignores the “Pod”. If Verification on Rebuild is turned off, the Shell produces bad geometry with two general faults. This suppressed feature is left in the model to provide background on the issue that is worked around (w/a) later in the tree.
