SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Bowling Pin Tutorial

Bowling Pin: This model shows how to use split line curves. It also has newer SOLIDWORKS functionality using circular profile sweeps. The circular profile sweep eliminates the need for an additional sketch with a circle on it to create the sweep.

There is an example of 3D sketch and different display states. The features used in the bowling pin include: revolves, sweeps, split line curves, extrude surfaces and a circular pattern. The model includes three different configurations (including one Minion themed pin!) and has some display states to toggle the colors of the crown or neck bands.
