SOLIDWORKS Pumpkin Pie Spice Jar Tutorial – Part 1

The leaves are changing colors, football is in full swing (American football that is), and turkeys are finding themselves on edge. It’s fall, SOLIDWORKS users, and, in my opinion, the best part of the fall season is the smell of pumpkin pie in the air. We’re celebrating the season by bringing you a 4 part series where we’ll be modeling this pumpkin pie spice jar, complete with a custom threaded cap, living hinge, and decal.

We will design this jar in the shape of a pumpkin, which is made up of a rotational pattern of wedges. So in part one of this series, we will be using the Lofted Boss, Mirror, and Circular Pattern tools to begin modeling the jar.

Can’t wait for the next video? View all of the tutorials in the series here.
