SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Kick-Ass Turtle Tutorial


Kick-Ass Turtle: This fun multi-body part has two configurations, one with a smile and one with a scowl. It also has four display states for four different color masks. With the two configurations and four display states this gives you eight different “versions” of the model. There are two examples of the new circular sweep function in SOLIDWORKS 2016. This parts goes over some easy to understand examples of surface boundaries and a revolved surface. It also has other surface features including surface knit, thicken, offset surface, trim, and extrude surface. There are examples of split lines and delete face including examples of the “delete and fill” option. A projected curve is used to make a 3D sweep without having to make a 3D sketch. Download this file to learn more about Display States and how make surface features.
