CAD Modeling: Some Best Practices

This file is a file I sent to my students at U Mass / Lowell showing how I would have done their first homework assignment.  I had several goals in doing this:

  1. Practice in Solidworks – always a good thing
  2. Showing what is possible, to inspire the students to practice and experiment
  3. Showing what I consider “best practices” in solid modeling
  4. Showing how to capture design intent in the model

I hope this is also useful for you.
