Batterfly valve is also one of the first projects and also concentrated to be more familiar with process of creating assemblies. Video of this valve was placed on our You Tube ( link) channel about one year ago. In this project was used SolidWorks ToolBox for adding to assembly ready to use studs, bolts and nuts. Thanks to Toolbox in SolidWorks the process of creation of assembly is speed up.
Today we have received first 3D print from https://www.shapeways.com/ and it is really fascinating to have something what was created virtually and now is real.
