You’re welcome! I will let you know when I’ve a position as guest writer offered! 🙂
That is really a good method for modeling complex model! Thank you so much for giving me this kind of inspirition. Please put more stuff here.
You’re welcome! I will soon publish more free SolidWorks tutorials! 😀
Great tutorials, Thanks. Would you consider offering tutorials in FEA. Would really like to learn more in this format. Thanks
Hi Martin! Thanks! What do you exactly mean with FEA?
FEA is the acronym for Finite Element Analysis, a method used for analysis of components. In SolidWorks, this is CosmosWorks or Simulation. Ok for intermediate design maturity but when it comes to final design release, do yourself a favor and work with more sophisticated tools like ANSYS or Nastran/HyperMesh.
Yo, that’s what’s up truhtfully.
“Select the lower endpoint of the Spline
Hold down the left key of your mouse and drag the spline to the circle of Sketch5.
SolidWorks will automatically add a Coincident relation with the circle.”
I can’t do that. I’m working with SW 2011, I don’t know if this is important.
Sorry for my english, I’m Spanish.
By the way, congratulations for this page and share your work
I fixed my previous problem with de spline (the spline was drawing in a wrong plane), but now I’ve got another problem with the two fillets. SW doesn’t let me select the blue edges as you shown on the pictures, and I don’t know why. Can you help me, please?
I am not sure why SW doesn’t let you select the blue edges. Did you use the Solid Loft feature or the Surface Loft feature? Maybe you’ve to increase the Fillet size to solve the problem. Feel free to send me your SolidWorks file and I will take a look at it.
Hi Jan. I solved my problem kniting the two surfaces of the lofts on the “leg” and filling the gap at the bottom.
Anyway, thank you for your help.
That’s great! 🙂 When you use the Solid Loft feature instead of the Surface Loft you don’t have to Knit and Fill it.
Hi Jan, thanks a lot for your very amazing tutorial in here. Actually, I was looking for how to import a JPEG and draw by referring to the JPEG picture. I just know about it because usually I am using SW2007. It would be awesome if I can learn that function for my hobby. I just want to ask since I do not have yet the latest version of SW, what is the criteria for the JPEG? is it possible if the JPEG that captured from camera directly insert into SW or need to convert first using any software with the specific criteria then insert into SW? very interested to know. Thanks
Thanks for your message. The size and resolution of the image doesn’t matter. You can change the dimensions and position of the images with this option: https://learnsolidworks.com/wp-content/uploads/How_to_Model_Starcks_Citrus_Squeezer_in_SolidWorks_003.png
Here you can find more information about importing of an image.

Thanks a lot for your very amazing and great tutorial in here..Very useful. I am very excited about this tutorial..i just completed my first Citrus Squeezer..and i will try to do this again..again and again.. I hope you will share with us new tutorial soon..
thanX dear Jan
you are the best teacher of my own…..
Wow… This is one of the most difficult parts I’ve created. Got stuck along the way at some point wasn’t even sure what i was doing. I’ll keep doing it till i get the hang of it. Thank you once more for your eBooks as they are much educational. just 1 question, why do we KNIT? and if possible a book explaining the uses and purposes of the functions would be a great help in understanding SW as i find it hard to relate and make sense of what i need to do, for instance i don’t think i’d manage to create this part without you step by steep tutorial.
