Galaxy Bead Maze Toy Tutorial – Part 1

This is Part 1 of a 2 Part SOLIDWORKS Tutorial series on how to create a Galaxy themed Bead Maze Toy. In Part 1 you will be shown how to create the main structure of the bead maze, which involves the use of 3D sketch, helix and the sweep tool. It will also show how to import DXF files to use as sketches and apply decals. You will also be shown how to add decals to a model.


Check back later to view Part 2 – which we will create the beads for the maze, and create a final assembly with all the parts. Decals and DXF files for this tutorial are available to download here.
