This is Part 2 of a two-part SOLIDWORKS tutorial for a Gingerbread Train Set. This tutorial demonstrates the use of path mates, to create a motion analysis of a train set that moves through the application of path motors to create a simulation of a toy train set. You will need to have watched part 1 of this tutorial if you want to see how to add reference points to parts ready for a motion analysis.
The accessories, tracks and carriages for this tutorial are available available to download from the description.
This is a two part SOLIDWORKS tutorial for a Gingerbread Train Set. Part 1 of this tutorial will demonstrate how to create a simple wooden train model in preparation for a motion analysis which is used to create an animation. In Part 1 you will create two parts, a Train and a set of wheels. The tutorial focuses on basic modelling features, but also shows you how to export decals ready to bring in to SOLIDWORKS and how to apply them to the train. The decals for this tutorial are available to download from the description.... Continued
