Part & Sheet Metal

Here are the Solid Edge Top Tips Videos for Part Modelling and Sheet Metal

Controlling Reference Plane Orientation

The purpose of this Solid Edge Top Tips video tutorial is to illustrate how the orientation of a profile or sketch reference plane can be controlled using various keyboard shortcuts. Controlling the orientation of the profile plane can help dramatically when it comes to defining sketch geometry which is aligned to certain edges in the model.

The above is a short overview of the Solid Edge tutorial Controlling Reference Plane Orientation.

2D to 3D Workflow Traditional Part

The purpose of this Solid Edge Top Tips video tutorial is to illustrate the workflow used to take an existing 2D drawing and use it to generate the 3D part model for it. This can be done with both a native Solid Edge drawing or one that has been imported using a format such as DWG, DXF or DGN. This particular video covers creating a traditional part model from the drawing.
