Article by Rod Mackay updated May 3, 2022


Surfacing in SOLIDWORKS desktop software is a powerful and useful concept.

If you are interested in learning about the latest SOLIDWORKS features and functionality when it comes to surface modeling or just want to expand your modeling techniques in general, this on-demand webinar is for you:

During this SOLIDWORKS Surfacing On-demand you will learn:

TriMech Training and Process Consultant, Robert Gemmell, takes you through the ins and outs of surfacing in the software. He starts with a simple task of taking surfaces and turning them into a solid part, while comparing a couple different approaches. Next, he will show how we can fix common issues when importing legacy data with bad geometry. Finally, he goes through the process of creating a master model; starting with a simple solid model that will be broken into multiple components of an assembly that are still controlled by the original master model.
