solidworks tutorial-3d-sketch

Please note that this is an advanced tutorial which means I don’t cover basic skills here – like creating a sketch or drawing a line – so if you are a beginner then I suggest you to work on the drone project. That is a solidworks 3d modeling project which I described the designing process from the very beginning to advanced  skills.

And the summary of this tutorial:

we will create this frame during the tutorial :

1 101 solidworks 3dsketch tutorial

What we use to accomplish this model :

  • 3d sketch
  • Line
  • Circle
  • Fillet
  • Smart dimension
  • Plane
  • Swept boss/base
  • Mirror
  • Liner pattern 

As its name complies , 3d sketch is all about creating sketches in three dimensions . Usually when we are sketching in 2d , we are working on one of standard planes (XY ,XZ , ZY ) but in 3d sketching you can switch between these planes when you are drawing .

Solidworks offers two kinds of 3d sketching , you can sketch along any direction in 3d space (3d sketching) or you can make separated sketches in different planes in just one single sketch (3d sketching with planes) . Our model here is about 3d sketching .

we start to draw lines in 3d to create the following sketch

Now dimension the lines :

In this step just fillet the corners to make a smooth profile .

open a 2d sketch on front plane and draw circle like this :

Now we are going to create the first part of the frame .

In order to create another half of the frame we use mirror (mirror button is in features tab too) :

so far we have created the main body of the frame :

Define a plane parallel to the right plane for the next sketch

we make another profile and a path for the sweep operation to get this result:

All that left to do is another support in width . we’ll create it now and then we will pattern it along the length of the frame .
