SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Coffee Pod Holder Tutorial

Coffee Pod Holder: This assembly has just four unique parts but it does provide a practical example of a chain component pattern. This chain component pattern functionality was introduced in SOLIDWORKS last year. There are few surface features used to create the grip on the tray. Other features included in the parts include: revolve, offset surface, trim surface, extend surface, surface thicken, a thin extruded cut and a mid plane revolved cut. There are some examples of converted and offset sketch entities. Download this file to get a short introduction to surfacing and also how to create a chain component pattern in an assembly.
