If you liked the previous entries in our SOLIDWORKS Training Fundamentals Video Series, then you’re going to love this one. Today’s topic is If Statements. You learned about global variables in Part 1, then Matt taught you how to make a curve-driven pattern in Part 2. In Part 3, Matt demonstrated how you can use equations to make the same hole pattern. This time you’ll be using if statements to control your hole pattern in a way that’s more intelligent and more efficient. This relies on a part file that you would have made if you followed along with Part 3, so you may want to watch that installment of our SOLIDWORKS video training first. If you want to get straight to the if statements, then you can follow along using this SOLIDWORKS 2018 part file. Watch the fourth installment below. We recommend expanding it to full screen and following along in SOLIDWORKS on a second monitor if that’s an option for you.
