A SOLIDWORKS face mask with Surfacing

56 12 Expert
A request was posted in the Questions section asking that an STL file be converted to a proper CAD format. I completed the conversion, and received some requests for older versions of the file, or instructions on how to make it. SOLIDWORKS does not do backwards compatibility very well, so here are the steps I took to make this face mask. A SOLIDWORKS 2020 model and Step file can be downloaded here: https://grabcad.com/library/coronavirus-covid-19-mask-request-1

Seat Cowl Modeling

35 2 Intermediate
I was asked how to make the my Ducati seat cowl in Catia. Unfortunately, I haven't worked in Catia for years, the model was made in Solidworks. Having worked in ProE, CATIA and Solidworks - though menu pics and verbiage may be different, they and other systems, are all capable of creating the same features with similar steps. I created a simplified PDF that shows the basic - steps taken to create this seat. These steps can be used as a frame work to design a wide variety of parts and on several CAD platforms. There are a lot of ways to do things, hopefully you find some of this useful. The model can be downloaded from GrabCAD. It is named: Ducati 996 / 998 Cafe Race Seat.

Adidas X18+ Soccer Boot Surfacing

24 1 Intermediate
We are going to learn to model the Adidas X18+ soccer boot using surfacing techniques. These are the cleats worn in 2018 by Luis Suarez and Mohamed Salah, among others. The preferred software for this tutorial is Solidworks but any program with comparable surfacing techniques such as CATIA, Rhinoceros and Alias will work. It is an intermediate course because we are touching on advanced surfacing techniques but only develop a basic model of the shoe that can be developed much further.

Creating a Laminated Stock

10 7 Expert
In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a laminated wood stock. This is really only useful for creating convincing renderings of laminated wood, but could also serve to illustrate manufacturing intent on a drawing. I will be demonstrating some intermediate to advanced surface modeling techniques and tools. Prior knowledge of regular and 3D sketching is required, as well as creating reference planes.

Surfacing With SolidWorks

9 8 Beginner
This is a short course on 3D modeling in SolidWorks using surfaces. Surfaces have many advantages for modeling objects aimed at the general consumer market (bottles [plastic, or glass for perfumes and beverages], phones, watches, hand tools, power tools, etc.). The course will be divided into several parts. We will try to cover from the basics, to the more complex use of surfaces. Stay tuned for the different parts of the course. Enjoy!
