Your Comments Very clear & easy to follow. Just one question, were did the imported pictures go….? They seem to have been consumed.
Hi Rich, I hide the imported pictures to keep the instructions clear. You can hide the sketch with the imported picture by clicking at the Glasses icon https://learnsolidworks.com/wp-content/uploads/Hide.png
Thank you!! Also can you teach us how you did this render
I made this rendering in KeyShot. You can find many rendering videos in my SolidWorks Chopper course: https://learnsolidworks.com/chopper

I’m learning solidworks, this program is in the field or when technology experts.
I label this solidworks lesson he sent the devil, I see and exercise learning by rather great.

Thanks a lot. But where is the rendering part of this tutorial?
Hi Muhid, at this moment is the iPhone tutorial the only one with a render tutorial in it. https://www.learnsolidworks.com/iphone
hi!Jan! please help creat hole in surface !thanks a lot!
Thanks for your message. It is very easy to make a hole in a surface. Just make a 2D sketch and draw a circle. Use the surface trim feature to create a hole.
You can also use the Split Line feature to project your hole on a surface and use the Delete face feature to make a hole in the surface.
Hope this helps!
hi again friend,
I have a question, how can I text something, for example my name, on the body of this deodorant roller? I could do this, for flat planes, but for this curvy one, I can’t.
Hi Shaghayegh, yes that’s possible. Here’s shortly how to do it: Create a text on a Plane. Go to the Cut Extrude feature > Select your Text Sketch > And use the “Offset From Surface” option to create a text in the same surface direction as the curvy surface. I will publish a post about this subject soon.
cool, thanks for the answer and for the future post u’re going to publish.
I had problems with this one, not due to your lesson, but due to something wacky happening with my solidworks 2012. Kept losing the tutorial and for some reason I have to click on selections several times to select them. Anyway, good lesson and I will find out what is causing selection problems and look forward to your next treat.
nice tutorial, very helpfull
Hi Jan Willem
I use autocad 2d and would like to learn to work in solid works, since it is using a lot in Mexico, I hope that I can recommend a course to start learning how to handle it.
Thanks and await your response.

that was really great!! is there any tutorials how to make threads on this deo cap?
Thanks! Maybe you can use the helical “Spring” technique to create the thread. I will publish a post about modeling a thread later.
tnx… it really helps a lot…. more power sir!
Thanks for the nice tutorial! I have problem with loft. When trying to loft, Edge of the upper part is single (works great) but edge of the lower part is in 3 pieces (half, quarter,quarter). How to solve this? I made sweep like in tutorial.
I am not sure what you’ve did wrong. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will take a look at it.
Thanks you very much for posting this tutorial. Very imformative and easy to follow along! KUDOS!
thanks for this tutorial. I fid your works brillant:) I hae a question. I dont know what I am missing here. When I try to do revolve cut, it gives me a zero thickness error. Later I got it what İt means. “Unable to create this feature because it would result in zero-thickness geometry.” I can’t figure it out:( thanks in advance.
This means that your model is not Solid. Try to recheck the Knit feature and make sure that the model is 100% closed. When it’s just a surface you don’t have a Thickness. This would result in zero-thickness geometry. You can use the Section View to check if your model is solid or surface. Good luck with it and let me know when you’ve any questions. Jan-Willem
thanks for the info and i think this is the best way to learn solidwork for the beginner like me.just follow the instruction and i get the result….thanks a lot dude!!!
