I was challenged to demonstrate the entire manufacturing process for a part, from initial project creation all the way through final documentation using the TopSolid 7 platform. This video continues to walk you through the completion of that challenge and demonstrates how TopSolid 7 allows users to design for manufacturability. In short, how TopSolid simplifies your manufacturing process.
After completing this challenge and making the resulting series of videos available to you, I decided to extend the challenge. To that end, we created the Program Your Part Challenge in which I invite you to challenge me with your part and/or manufacturing challenges.
Within this video, we are going to modify position three and set up its stock condition – again, we will do an in-place modification. One of the key things this video highlights is my decision to create offsets so in the event the customer modifies the part, the representation I am creating will automatically update.
**Power User Tip** – Double click on the part while in the assembly context – TopSolid does the same thing as the in-place edit command.
