SolidWorks Training - All SolidWorks training should start with the essentials. SolidWorks Essentials is the foundation on which you can build your modeling skills. It covers the base concepts and conventions on which the rest of our SolidWorks classes are based. (If you need to create drawings of your designs, SolidWorks Drawings will show you how to make complete design documentation. SolidWorks File Management will help you understand the relationships between the files SolidWorks produces and will make it easier to manage the complete design package).
Part and Assembly will complete your knowledge of solids molding tools and techniques. If your designs require complex or organic shapes, Advanced Surfacing will introduce you to surface modeling techniques. CATI's exclusive Industrial Design Modeling class is the ultimate Surface modeling class.
Mold Design, Sheet Metal, Weldments, and Translation Techniques are focused on specific types of parts and assemblies with distinctive fabrication methods or applications.
