Save multiple body parts as an assembly in 5 mouse clicks or less.

Need to get multiple profiles off of a part in SolidWorks? Need to define sections of a part? If so, this tutorial will show you how to take a single part in SolidWorks and dice it up into multiple bodies. You can then save the bodies out into individual parts in just a few mouse clicks. An added bonus is the ability to create an assembly from the saved parts at the same time with no extra clicks.
