SOLIDWORKS component patterns can cut your design time and help you work faster. In this course, SOLIDWORKS: Saving Time with Component Patterns in Assemblies, you’ll see how to take advantage of the powerful pattern functionality in SOLIDWORKS. First, you’ll discover how the Chain Component Pattern can save time and create working motion for chained components like the treads of a track vehicle. Next, you’ll learn to quickly populate your assemblies with fasteners and create opposite hand versions of parts and assemblies. Finally, you’ll explore many other patterning techniques that will automate component placement while speeding up assembly rebuild times by decreasing assembly mates. After finishing this course, you’ll see that these features are there to make your life easier, it’s time to take advantage of them. Software required: SOLIDWORKS.
