Lab 4: Prototyping in SolidWorks

Download this lab’s code here.

The first part of the class tutorials walks you though how to design parts and export drawings for laser cutting. The second part focuses on the more advanced techniques and assembly. You can find materials provided in the class in the lab code folder. Please, note that it is not a starter code for the assignment.

Step 1: Drawing for laser cutting

Once the individual parts are designed, generating an illustrator drawing is very straight forward.

Step 2: Features & Assembly Modeling

For this part of the tutorial, some design features (extrude, loft, fillet, shell, libraries, …) are introduced. Some examples are included in the lab code. Feel free to explore the rest of the features (sweep, chamfer, …).
