Building Complex Geometry with SOLIDWORKS

Build complicated shapes such as Icosahedrons in minutes using SOLIDWORKS.

Modeling using surface tools can be very helpful when you need to create complex geometry. In the video below, we demonstrate how you can design an icosahedron using SOLIDWORKS surface tools. These techniques can be used for a variety of other complex geometric designs.
