SOLIDWORKS CATIpult Session
Event #: CP101
CATIpult learning sessions are unique educational opportunities designed for SOLIDWORKS users of various experience levels.
CATI Technical Analysts have put together a series of hour long presentations in the form of convenient webcasts. The CATIpult webcasts are conducted via Webex and consist of live SOLIDWORKS hands-on training, Power Point presentations, and product demonstrations.
Topics change monthly, so check back for new topics.

|Common Mistakes to Avoid when Planning a SOLIDWORKS Upgrade||As we begin 2021, many of you will begin planning your SOLIDWORKS upgrades in the next few months. In this CATIpult webinar, we’ll cover some of the most common issues we observe and how to avoid them. Even if you’ve installed SOLIDWORKS many times, you’ll not want to miss this.td>||Justin Maxwell|
|Soft Jaw Design: Simple & Complex Part Holding Design Technique||In this live webcast we’re going to explore design techniques in SOLIDWORKS for designing soft jaws. Some parts have obvious geometry to grab, however others can be quite challenging, especially when multiple machines are used to fabricate parts. Join us this February with SOLIDWORKS Application Engineer Mike Thompson as we move from making files to making chips!||Mike Thompson|
|Tips for Getting Started and Customizing SOLIDWORKS||In this CATIpult session we’re presenting a handful to tips to help you be successful setting up SOLIDWORKS. We will start with a few best practices learned over the years to help with options and template setups.||Cameron Hosimer|
|SOLIDWORKS Tools You May Have Forgotten||As SOLIDWORKS users, we are all familiar with the mainstream commands like Sketches, Extrudes, Lofts, Fillets, etc. We all have our set of tools that we know well and rarely do we have time to dig around in SOLIDWORKS and find something new. In this CATIpult session, we want to dig around in SOLIDWORKS and cover a few commands and tools that may have gone overlooked. If you are newer to SOLIDWORKS, you may see this functionality for the first time. For the experience user, we may reintroduce you to that forgotten command.||Sara Hollett|
|Improve Quality with SOLIDWORKS Inspection||Are you manually ballooning drawings for your inspection documents ? Have you wondered if there is a better way? In this month’s CATIpult session we show how SOLIDWORKS Inspection simplifies the task of creating your First Article Inspection (FAI) documentation. SOLIDWORKS Inspection helps automate the process of creating fully ballooned inspection drawings along with industry standard inspection reports (AS9012, PPAP, etc.). Whether you’re working with SOLIDWORKS files, or imported files, SOLIDWORKS Inspection has you covered.||Roger Ruffin|
|Give your Drawings some Automation||This webinar will cover a few best practices to set up your SOLIDWORKS drawings to automate some of those day-to-day tasks. We will cover the importance of the Sheet Format and how it works with the Drawing Template to customize the title block and border. We will show how easy it is for SOLIDWORKS to automatically populate title block, or any, fields on the drawing. If you find yourself always manually typing in data or experiencing errors when adding multiple sheets, this webinar is for you.||Kris Dubuque|
|Time-Saving Techniques for Tip Top Tooling||Join Application Engineer Jordan Kleinschmidt as he covers an overview on using functions within SOLIDWORKS for more efficient tolerancing and manufacturing design validation. In our August CATIpult webcast, we’ll introduce the basics of DFMXpress — a tool that checks designs manufacturability – and DimXpert, which automates tolerances based on user settings.||Jordan Kleinschmidt|
