SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Jack o’ Lantern Tutorial

Jack O’ Lantern: Happy Halloween! The fun model begins with Planes for loft profile. A circular pattern is created and the Shell Tool is used to make the model hollow. A plane tangent to the cylindrical surface and parallel to the front plane will be the sketch plane for the jack-o’-lantern face. Use Selected Contours to create multiple bodies at once to create the candle that will light up the jack-o’-lantern!
