If you liked the previous entries in our SOLIDWORKS 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 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.
Watch the whole series:
- Part 1: Global Variables
- Part 2: Curve Driven Patterns
- Part 3: Equation Driven Linear Patterns
- Part 4: If Statements
- Part 5: Library Features
- Part 6: Configurations
- Part 7: Design Tables
- Part 8: DriveWorksXpress
We do custom training!
Do you have a project that you need help on? We can help get your project across the finish line, and train your workforce using the best practices for your specific designs. We call it project-based training. That's how Matt got so good at teaching people how to use SOLIDWORKS. We can do the training in-person, via web meetings, or even create a custom video series based on your team's needs. Contact us to learn more or get a quote.
