What would be a good resource, or tutorial for me to use to learn the basics of the mold tools available in SolidWorks? I don't need detail on each, but I am interested in learning the best approach to starting a mold design from a plastic part.

Currently I take advantage of the cavity feature only. I draw a cavity block and core block, insert them into an assembly along with the plastic part and from there I take advantage of the cavity feature to remove material from the core and cavity. I'm doing this to get by as I need to get work done, but I am sure that there are "proper" ways to do this. The problem isn't my ability to learn, but the experiance to know what's available to me.
