SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Record Player Tutorial

Record Player: The first record players are over 140 years old and are still unbelievably in use, in one form or another, today. This model is a little flashback of some old school music history. This is a multi-body solid created from mainly extruded features. This part has multiple shells including one with multi-thicknesses. A split line curve used in conjunction with a shell feature to cut geometry as it shells a solid body. There is a cool example of the indent command removing material.

Other features in the model include: revolves, loft, combine, delete face and sketch driven pattern.

Download this file to learn more about shelling multiple bodies, the indent feature, and to learn a little bit about music history.
