Mirror Components in Assemblies SolidWorks 2014

We here at SolidBox value productivity above all in our applications and of course, our hardware. Each week, we’ll be giving you a tip to help you enhance your productivity with SolidWorks specifically. Sorry, we can’t help you with the hours you spend on Youtube each week watching cat videos, but hopefully you can learn something to make your SolidWorks experience easier.

Although linear and circular patterns are standard fair for most SolidWorks users, one pattern tool often gets overlooked. The Feature Driven Component Pattern tool allows you to speed up your workflow when creating assemblies that require many instances of a certain component, such as a fastener. This video walks you through how to use the Feature Driven Component Pattern tool and when it will be the most helpful to you.
