Learn about making a 3D sketch.
- [Instructor] For question number two of the sample exam,…it's asking us to build this structure right here…in a 3D sketch.…So you can see, it might be a little bit complicated…and only because you've got this 100 degree from the side,…you've got 100 degrees from the end.…Now, if you scroll to kind of the bottom…of the sample exam,…you can see that there's a bunch of issues,…or hints and tricks you might want to review…and some common errors you might want to see by…you know, creating a dimension or a 3D sketch…across a couple different angles…and how to get around that.…
So, let's go back up here, two,…and you can see we got to create this shape here,…and then we're going to create a weldment from it.…So, it's 1000 by 1700.…Let's go ahead and create this in SOLIDWORKS.…New, I'm going to use the aluminum part here.…Start there.…Now, instead of just starting with a sketch,…why don't we just create a solid which will be super easy…to create this shape from.…So, I'm going to click on sketch,…start a sketch on the top plane,…
