This class introduces the student to 2D drafting in a SolidWorks 3D modeling environment. Students will focus solely on drafting techniques for both SolidWorks parts and assemblies. This will include functionality ranging from drawing and document setup through custom and standard view creation. Students learn to create custom drawing templates and BOM tables and learn techniques to create elaborate drawing views to completely convey design information.

"This class was very informative and covered all topics in a way that was relatable to real world situations." - Don Gibbs
At Course Completion
Students will know how to utilize SolidWorks to create 2D drawings of production level parametric models of parts and assemblies. They will be familiar with the SolidWorks user interface as well as tools and techniques for creating quality 2D representations of 3D solid models. They will also gain skills to create and maintain custom drawing templates.
The SolidWorks Drawings training guide will be supplied at the beginning of class and is yours to keep.
