Following Part 1 of this video tutorial, Stuart looks at reference geometry and surface modeling to create the paddle & seals. You will see how using surfaces and features within SolidWorks makes life so much easier and more efficient when designing in 3D CAD. The hints and tips you will pick up will help you become a quicker and more effective SolidWorks user.

Tutorial 3: Surface Modeling – Paddle Blade

Create complex and difficult shapes using SolidWorks surfacing. Modelling the blade of the paddle, Stuart will how you how to trim your surfaces to get the results you want.

Tutorial 4: Reference Surface Modeling – Paddle Seals

Use surfaces to make a reference that will allow you to create parts which are directly connected to the dimensions of your model. Here, Stuart creates a ‘skin tight’ rubber seal for this paddle.
