Mark created this spoon video as a tutorial for the introduction of Boundary Surface. Boundary Surface can now probably be described as the most powerful, and fundamental tool for SolidWorks surfacing.

    This “video” taught me absolutely nothing. A complete waste of my time.

      You are “scare quoting” the word video? Perhaps you clicked on the screen shots used in the introduction, instead of the actual video below.

    Regarding your “Boundry Surface” video.
    I receive audio but no video.

      Sorry to hear that, Gary. Try right clicking on it, and “save link as…” This will allow you to download the video. Hopefully you get the video in your native player, or it will prompt you to download the codec required.

    Thanks for this! Awesome tutorial. I didn’t know you can drag endpoints while using the selection manager or that you can add connectors to a boundary surface. Very happy I watched.

    I’m impressed! Didn’t know that SW could make B-rep surfaces until now. Is this available in all versions of SW 2012? I’d like to try this out. Using SW Pro 2012.

      Yes. SolidWorks has had this capability since SW2007, and like all modeling tools, is available in all packages.
