Introductory Surface Modelling SolidWorks Workshop 2016 

  Plastic Medicine Spoon    



In "Surface Modelling" a model is built face by face. Faces created by surface features may knit together to enclose a volume, which may be turned into a solid model.

Surface modelling is used to create faces and features which may not be conveniently produced using solid modelling techniques. Surface tools are employed in situations where they make it easier, more efficient or even possible to complete the task at hand.

The focus of the workshop is to give a basic introduction to surfaces, to explore the functionality of some surfacing tools and explain some of the terminology used.
