Today we began our introduction to Solidworks, a 3D modeling software that is used in engineering to design parts of machines. It was a rough start for me. I’ve used 3D modelling tools like Blender beforehand, but trying to design something in Solidworks was very difficult. The user interface was very complex, with multiple modes needed to make a very simple object. At the beginning of the day, I felt overwhelmed with the switching between multiple modes, and the order in which I had to switch between them. However, at the end of the lesson, I felt that I learned more about the process of creating something great in Solidworks.
