solidworks tutorial-surface

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:

You will create this webcam head during the tutorial:

What we use to accomplish this model :

  • Plane
  • Sketch
  • Line , point , circle , ellipse
  • Surface loft
  • Surface extrude
  • Surface trim
  • Surface fill
  • Surface knit
  • Thicken
  • Body delete

The object of the tutorial is so funny and it’s surface curvature convinced me to select it as a surface tutorial . I have a webcam which it’s head is just like this so the dimensions and the shape are real . I’m seeing it right now on my desk . for me it was a lot fun to model it and I hope it could be so for you .

Lets get to it .

First we are going to create the main body . take a look at it :

We create this shape by surface loft and for the loft we need some sketches (seven sketches to be precise) . here is a preview of all the necessary sketches :

for these sketeches we need some new planes:

Define plane2 for next sketch:

these are the guide curves of our model:

after drawing all the necessary sketches we can go for the surface loft14 115 solidworks surface tutorial surface loft window

Now we are going to make the speakers . first we use surface extrude

then we trim the unnecessary parts

You must get this result , if not , check the parameters .

now we fill the open holes

We want to make some groove in front of the speakers . the process is amazing . first we should cut the unwanted area with the help of an extrude

Hide the “surface extrude2” to see what we’ve done :

then we will fill the empty area with the point reference which the result is amazin

now repeat that for the other side

We have created this so far:

for the speakers first we extrude surface then we trim the unwanted part.

now its time to delete all the unwanted surfaces for getting the final result

The result:

Its time to make the body a whole integrated surface for thicken process . we use “knit surface” for this purpose .

now make it solid by adding some thickness to the part
