People ask me all the time what areas of SOLIDWORKS to study in order to do their job effectively. Part modeling? Mold Design? Surfacing? Assemblies?
The short answer is ALL of THEM! The main difference between a user who is familiar with just a few areas inside SOLIDWORKS, versus one who is comfortable with using almost all the features available in the software, is the versatility of the second. He or she would be able to combine various workflows and create powerful and sometimes unorthodox new techniques that can achieve the desired design intent much faster.
In this video, I will show you an example SOLIDWORKS Mold design where various techniques from multi-body part modeling, surface modeling and the mold tools saves a lot of time, while achieving the design intent.
Note: Many thanks to Peter Parker for the fan model and for all the questions.
