SOLIDWORKS Bounding Box Tutorial

Hey SOLIDWORKS users!  Let’s take a deep dive into a very useful feature – Bounding Box!  The Bounding Box is a piece of reference geometry that can be found in SOLIDWORKS 2018 or later and it really comes in handy when you want to quickly take length, width, and height measurements of your part or parts.

Let’s use this awesome airplane model to fly through how to add a bounding box to a part.  We’ll also be running through the different bounding box options as well as a quick real-world example of how the bounding box could come in handy for you on future projects.
