The next course in the series is SolidWorks 2014: Advanced Parts & Assemblies. This course kicks your SolidWorks skills up another notch by showing you advanced ways of creating models and structured methods of controlling your assemblies. It also shows you how to create assemblies from a single part.

In fact there are several ways you can use a single part file to generate multiple parts. You can use Multi-body modeling, use Design Tables, and develop multiple configurations within a single part file. Each method is very powerful and requires study to execute them effectively. This course covers all these methods and more and shows you the details of each one.

Top Down Design is one of the preferred methods of developing assemblies, but what's typically done is a hybrid of Top Down and Bottom Up design. Top Down Design is when you create an assembly of parts in a single part file. It's also called Multi-body Modeling. This method is typically the best method to use because you can edit any component in the assembly without leaving the file. You can see all the components in the file, and this helps visualize the development of mating parts.

Bottom Up Design is just the opposite. You construct each part in separate files, and then insert and constrain the parts in an assembly file. The benefit of this method is you can work on a single part without being distracted by other parts in the assembly. You can also insert parts from the SolidWorks Toolbox.

You can also use Middle Out Design which is working in an assembly file. Components are already in the assembly while you work on them. You'll exit the assembly in one form or another to edit the components and then reinter the assembly to assess your modifications.

All of these methods are good methods to use, and what's typically done is a hybrid of these methods. You might create a subassembly using Top Down Design. Export the components to a main assembly, and then use Bottom Up Design to add more components.

The course covers all of this with great detail and explains best practices and sound processes every step of the way. Read through the list of lessons to learn more.
