Today we bring you the seventh (and possibly penultimate) installment in our Parametric Modeling Video Series. If you haven't seen the others yet, go check out Part 1 as each episode builds on the last. This one is all about design tables. Using our handy dandy holes-in-a-plate model, you will learn how you can harness the power of Microsoft Excel directly within the SOLIDWORKS environment to organize and modify variants of a part. This tutorial builds upon and relies on a part file that you would have created in the sixth episode, so you may want to do that tutorial first. If you want get straight to the design tables, then we've got you covered. You can get the SOLIDWORKS 2018 part file here. Watch the seventh installment below. We recommend expanding the video to full screen and following along in SOLIDWORKS on a second monitor if that's an option for you.

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.
