Description
This multi-body part is a functional piece of history originally invented in the late 1800s in New England. It is a yankee screwdriver also called a "push screwdriver" or a spiral screwdriver. It does include many of the internal parts that make up this tool. It is two examples of indent feature. There are several examples of the "delete face" command using the "delete and fill" option. The part has other features including: helical curves, helical cuts, , revolves, move/copy body, mirror, and circular patterns. There is one example of the new circular sweep function in SOLIDWORKS 2016 used to create a helical spring.

Description
This multi-body part shows the inner workings of a coreless DC motor. Most of the geometry is made with extrudes and revolves but there are some examples of sweeps and one loft. There are two examples of the new circular sweep function in SOLIDWORKS 2016. This part also goes over some easy to understand examples of surface feature creation used to make some the geometry including the windings. Other features the model include are: combine, freeform, surface knit, offset surface, extrude surface, planar surface, indent, circular patterns and one swept cut. There are two examples of the wrap feature using the "scribe" option. Download this file to learn more about motors and how to use surface features to create more complex geometry.

Here is a part that everyone is familiar with. It is a Multi-body Part that has a some sheet metal features and two surface sweeps in it. It is mainly created with extruded features but does have some revolves sprinkled in. Other features in the light switch part include: a lofted cut, combines, solid and surface sweeps, edge flanges, axis, move/copy body, and two circular patterns. There is a unique example of a helical sweep for the internal spring that does not use a standard helical curve to create it. An "intersection curve" is used to create a 3D sketch for the sweep path similar to how a projected curve works.

Description
This assembly has two parts. One part is used to help create an animation. The nail clippers model is a multi-body part with a very unique combination of sheet metal features with some basic surfacing features sprinkled in. There is an "in context" sketch feature that helps animate the flexing of the arms. The features included in the nail clipper part include: revolve, lofted surface, offset surface, trim surface, extend surface, knit surface, edge flange and a split line curve.

Description
This model introduces some of the terminology and concepts of a camshaft. Cam Lift and Cam Lobe separation are discussed and shown in this model without being overwhelming with information overload. There are multiple examples of copying and moving solid bodies with a Combine features merging all the bodies back into a single body. There is an example of helical gears created with a swept cut. Also included in the model are circular patterns and a linear pattern. Download this file to learn more about camshafts.

Description
This small but feature packed assembly consists of a few multi-body parts. The wheel and wheel boss are multi-body parts and have several examples of circular patterns. The chariot part is another multibody part made of extrusions and revolves features and has examples of the rarely used curve driven pattern and move face command. Other features in the parts include revolves, thins, full round fillets, split line curves, delete face and the combine command. There are two examples of the new bidirectional sweep function in SOLIDWORKS 2016. There is even a little bit of chariot trivia sprinkled into some of the comments. Download this part to learn about mirroring geometry and about different types of patterns including curve driven patterns.

Description
This is an assembly model of a Unicycle. It is modeled to convey an appearance that could be used to sell the idea to a user or a bike manufacture. The crankshaft and wheel can be turned and the pedals rotate. The fork can rotate and the seat post can be moved through its range using a limit distance mate.The individual parts show a great deal of visual detail but are lacking in fine details like bearings and fasteners or clamps. This was done to simplify the models. The wheel is very detailed but does not have a tube or a stem since they are not appearance factors. The fork part has an example of sweep and couple of boundary features to create a shaped fork extension. The wheel shows how to move and pattern solid bodies. Other features used in the wheel part include: Sweeps, Revolves, Move/Copy Body and Split Line. The decision to merge or not merge solid bodies are discussed within the parts. Download this model to learn some approaches to convey a functioning mechanism that has visual appeal and can be used to market an idea.

Description
This model of a California license plate introduces the use of the Indent tool. Two forming Tools are created for stamping a license plate shape. Lettering features are created from pictures that were embedded into sketches and then traced using the "Sketch Picture" command. A thin sheet is stamped with the tools and the tools then discarded by using the "Delete/Keep Body..." command. In addition to indenting a body two separate times, techniques are demonstrated to use existing pictures for achieving the desired custom fonts, sizing, and colors. Traced geometry is created using splines and other sketch features. Blocks are created to maintain traced shapes when placing and positioning the geometry. Some of the extruded bosses have draft added directly in the extruded features. Download this file to learn more about Blocks, Sketch Pictures and the Indent feature to create stamped impressions.

As we get ready for the Olympics in Rio, this part shows functionality to help get your design intent across to downstream users. This part has several equations to help drive the different sizes of the javelin. This part has a design binder that contains a document with two pictures showing where all the dimensions came from. This part has two different sizes for men and women's competition. There is a center of gravity feature that is used to correctly locate the handle. There are two different color schemes set by using configurations and display states, one is red and white and the other is red, white and blue. This part has several examples of split features including two to create different logos. The grip was created by an easy to understand helical sweep. Download this file to get educated on how to use equations and add a attachments to your parts.
