What a week, I have passed Solidworks Essentials training, next one is Drawings / Detailing ! Rock on , I have learnt a lot of tricks to quicken up my model drawing.
Today I have edited this lin-bin, it was at first to small so I changed the dimensions of it to create it to what I wanted. It was rather complex as there are a lot of different bits to see and change. but I soon got the hang of it.

Today we had someone doing Work Experience in the PED Dept.
I have helped him copy a pencil pot to CAD. I was showing him how to do the basics on SolidWorks, changing the diameters using Smart Dimension and chamfers.
I have to admit I was really Impressed how quickly he picked up the Vernier and got straight to work. I was impressed with his skills of mating the items together using tangents and chords.

I have been using Solidworks for the past 2 years now and finding it rather easy, above was a mini project that someone gave me, it’s a flower pot for a grave. I know exciting right? Well, it is actually harder than you think, this is assembled in 3 parts a bottom plate, cylinder and the top holes plate. You can download the template here.
To do this I had to extrude the cylinder and then inside it make an extrude cut 5mm smaller to give the walls a thickness of 5mm.
