SolidWorks Surface Tutorial - Basics of Solidworks Surface
You see that hot looking Camaro up above? Get your surface slappers ready.
Matthew first brought up his Camaro modeling project on the SolidWorks Forums. I followed up with Matthew to find out more about his background, why he chose to model the Camaro and make it free to everyone.
I really enjoy the design side of things over the engineering side so ive really pushed myself in that direction. I was introduced to parametric modeling software when we received Inventor in Before that I had played with Autocad off and on for school but really never did much with it. SolidWorks is great and it really gave me the platform to pursue surface modeling. Shortly after using SolidWorks I began preparing for the certifications. I tried a few cars before I gave the Camaro a shot.

The choice for the car really came about because someone posted their attempt on another forum with a few questions. I really just wanted to give it a try and went from there.
I really enjoy CAD work and helping others learn. I feel this transfer of knowledge should be free to those who want to learn so as of now everything I do is available to anyone who wants it not the files, but the knowledge ;-.
Here are some renderings of the model Matthew worked up real quick in PhotoView Just imagine it, you could do the same. The step-by-step. Taking on the challenge? A big thanks to Charles Culp for tipping us off about this!
