This is Andrew’s SolidWorks World 2015 presentation.

Production modeling of consumer products can be intimidating without the right combination of skills and modeling strategies. This session discusses techniques to accurately create production models of the most challenging shapes present in today’s cutting-edge product designs.

Attendees will learn sketch spline best practices, methods to lay out surfaces for optimal visual quality and robustness, various ways to surface model with draft for mass production, techniques for creating overmolds, and strategies to surface model the most complex of shapes.
