This is a SOLIDWORKS Tutorial for a drop out bowl mold. The mold is designed to create a slip cast ceramic bowl. The tutorial focuses on the combine tool, and the use of undercut analysis, which evaluates the design of the bowl for possible issues for molding. It is essential to test a model in this way before molding to avoid the model getting trapped in the mold.... Continued
This is a SOLIDWORKS tutorial to create a pot of gold money jar. This tutorial demonstrates a range of modelling tools, but also highlights the use of the centreline sketch tool as a guide for sketches, new planes, and axis for pattern or move features.

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
