SOLIDWORKS Juice Dispenser Tutorial – Part 3

It’s that time of year, the kids have just head back to school and they are growing like weeds! In an effort to teach the kids a bit more independence, we are designing and 3D printing a custom juice dispenser so they can serve themselves in a fun and easy way.

Throughout this 3-part series, we’ll run through some basic modeling techniques in SOLIDWORKS. We’ll give a few pointers for splitting up and printing larger parts on desktop 3D printers, and we’ll hit the workshop to assemble and finish all of our components.

Welcome, SOLIDWORKS community, to the final part of our 3-part series where we’re running through designing and building a custom refrigerator juice dispenser. In part 2 of the series, we completed the design of the plastic components, but this is a pretty large part at about 13” wide by 15” tall, so we need to split these components into smaller segments for desktop 3D printing. We’ll run through easily splitting up larger parts, and running incorporating my go-to alignment aid for assembling 3D printed segments. Finally, we’ll hit the workshop to assemble and finish the printed design.
