Do you have a PDF of a drawing that you would like to bring in to SOLIDWORKS? Perhaps you have legacy data or client information that you need to convert to 3D, and all you have is a PDF. If you could just bring that information into SOLIDWORKS... it would save you a lot of time, and that would be awesome! In this blog, you will learn a mind-blowing yet simple technique that will save you time going from PDF to 3D in SOLIDWORKS!

This blog and accompanying video series will illustrate some very simple methods for creating a basic parametric bookcase that is easily configurable into many shapes and sizes with minor adjustments to just a few dimensions. In Part 1 we will create the bookcase using Top-Down Assembly Modeling technique. Part 2 will use a multi-body part environment to create the book case, and utilize the cut-list generated from the Weldment Feature. The concepts that will be discussed are basic but will illustrate some very powerful techniques using SolidWorks.
