Four Jpeg files are also downloaded for use as sketch pictures, the Apple Logo itself and an Apple rendering background to be inserted into a render as a scene in itself.
SolidWorks pdf Tutorials – Beats Mixr Headphones: This is my latest model for the Music set of tutorials that I am currently working on. Borrowed these headphones from a student of mine for the weekend – thanks to Sean! Some interesting Hinge mates for the ear phones themselves as they can revolve (not too much) on two axes. Keep an eye out for the tutorial for this and the other music products.
