How to make a ZIP File using SOLIDWORKS Pack and Go Feature ?

I am asking this question so I can post a tutorial how to use the "PACK and GO" feature in SOLIDWORKS to create a single ZIP File that will have all the PART & ASSEMBLY files included in it from your SolidWorks Model. ( NOTE: Many people just download the ASSEMBLY file and forget to include the proper PART files - This tutorial shows how to create a single ZIP file that will have all the PART files associated with the SolidWorks ASSEMBLY )

SolidWorks has a feature that allows you to open an ASSEMBLY and then create a single ZIP FILE that you can upload to GrabCAD that will have all the correct SolidWorks PART Files included... Go to "FILE" then "Pack and Go" then choose the the "Save to ZIP File" option. Click "BROWSE" and pick a place on your hard-drive to save the Zip file. SolidWorks will then create a single ZIP FILE that you can upload to GrabCAD. (The photos are backwards so start at the last one and go back to see in correct order... I downloaded them in the correct order but they were posted backwards)
