In this tutorial, I walkthrough some of the things I learned while making boomy the boombox.
Working with SVGs
Not 1:1 scaling
UnFixed to modify or set dimensions
Use for referencing scale only
Easy to make features with just a single sketch
Different sizes, shapes, hollow feature and custom lengths
Only works with a single path, not multiple paths
3-point arc is difficult to manipulate once drawn.
Conic curve is much more flexible and parametric
Click and hold left mouse button to make curves with line tool
Sketch loose concept > refine after drawn
Delete unnecessary constraints
Sketch dimensions for angles
Minimize profile selections
Using Trim tool – T – red outlines
Remove excess profiles by deleting intersecting edges
Warnings are specific to constraints
