solidworks polygon tutorial for beginners
Drawing a polygon in solidworks is really easy. Just open a new sollidworks sketch on the top plane and navigate to the polygon button on the sketch toolbar and click on it:
When you click on the button two things happen:
- A little polygon appears near the cursor which means you are ready to sketch a polygon
- Polygon window appears on the property manager and you can specify the number of the polygon’s sides
Click on the working area and specify the center of the polygon then drag the cursor and click again to specify the radius of the inner circle:
You can set the number of the sides and other parameters in the polygon window:
When you are done with the polygon you can set dimensions for it by smart dimensions and make it fully defined.
