SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Chariot Tutorial

Chariot: This small but feature packed assembly consists of a few multi-body parts. The wheel and wheel boss are multi-body parts and have several examples of circular patterns. The chariot part is another multibody part made of extrusions and revolves features and has examples of the rarely used curve driven pattern and move face command. Other features in the parts include revolves, thins, full round fillets, split line curves, delete face and the combine command. There are two examples of the new bidirectional sweep function in SOLIDWORKS 2016.

There is even a little bit of chariot trivia sprinkled into some of the comments. Download this part to learn about mirroring geometry and about different types of patterns including curve driven patterns.
