SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Epoxy Syringe Tutorial

Epoxy Syringe: This practical, familiar model shows various techniques on geometry creation. Multi-body part design creates two solids representing the cylinder and piston of this epoxy syringe. This model is mainly created with extrusion but some hybrid modeling is shown. Surface geometry is used to cut internal geometry of a solid model body where a shell feature would not work.

There are examples of surface modeling including: cut with surface, filled surface, extend surface, offset surfaces, surface trim and surface knit. There is an example of creating a Rib using the “Parallel to Sketch” option. Solid features include: extrudes, revolves, combines, mirror, delete face, split lines curves and the split command. There are examples of circular and linear patterns and mirrored geometry. Download this part to learn more about Hybrid Modeling and how to mirror and pattern Rib geometry.
