Presented at SolidWorks World 2011.
Jeremy provides an outstanding discussion on how splines can make for better engineering. Fan blades, Venturi tubes, hoppers, optics, sheet metal, streamlining, ergonomics, springs, load-bearing spans, wire paths, cams, and aerodynamics. All the spline tools are demonstrated, with tips on the trickier ones.
This is best watched as a video, as the slides mostly provide the background for his discussions.
