SolidWorks Basics – Features

SolidWorks Features turn your sketch geometry into 3D geometry. They are the building blocks used to take your design, step-by-step, to the final product. They allow you to add and remove material in a number of different ways, including using Extrudes, Revolves, Fillets, Chamfers and many more.

This Wednesday’s webcast will explain from the ground up everything you need to know to get to grips with the fundamentals of features inside SolidWorks. We will explain exactly what a feature is, look at some examples of how they can be used, and also explain their properties.

You can expect to see the following:
