Creating a 3D Wolf head


New member
Hi. I am pretty much beginner at Solidworks, even though I have created dozens of different pieces and objects. But one eludes my mind.

I am trying to create a 3D wolf head with neck, that is made of sheet metal pieces. I was trying to do this by simply creating separate pieces, but I get the proportions wrong. Then I tought I sohuld create a frame first, to which I simply attach right sized pieces after. But for some reason I cant use Structural Member function after I made a frame with 3D sketch. Why? I really like to know how to fix this and I also like to have any tips about creating animal head in Solidworks.
