SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Vintage Microphone Tutorial

Vintage Microphone: We are “on the air” with SOLIDWORKS!

This multi-body part goes over different pattern and mirroring techniques. It does include a few advanced features including sweeps and a loft.

There is an example of a spring created from helix curve and uses a composite curve to add the “pigtail” ends. Other features include linear and circular patterns, revolves and several mirrors.  This part includes multiple split line curves for the text labels. There are a couple of examples of full round fillets and three 3D sketches.

There are two display states: one with red text red, one with clear text to distinguish the on or off status.
