SOLIDWORKS Sketch Blocks Video Tutorial| Part 8

Solidworks / May 10, 2019

It is finally here! All great things must come to an end, and sadly our time with SOLIDWORKS sketch blocks has run out. We covered a lot in these eight videos from basics of creating a block, using them for kinematics in a part, their use in drawings and ending up here today. Our final topic goes into sketch blocks in an assembly layout sketch. Why? Because in a layout sketch we can apply a mass to our sketch block and run a motion study with it. This allows us to apply forces, springs and dampers, motors and gravity. It also opens up some result tools like plotting velocity of points to help plan out mechanical motion. So if you aren’t fed up with blocks yet and are craving some more follow along as we wrap up this series! You can use this SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD 2019 sample file.
