Class #: CAD210

The goal of this course is to teach you how to build multi-body and complex shape solid models using SOLIDWORKS mechanical design automation software. Most of the case studies and exercises in this course are taken from industrial type applications, and the lessons primarily center around working with solids. Surfacing functions are covered in depth in the Advanced Surface Modeling course.

The tools for modeling complex shapes in SOLIDWORKS are quite robust and feature rich. During this course, we will cover many of the commands and options in great detail. However, it is impractical to cover every minute detail and still have the course be a reasonable length. Therefore, the focus of this course is on the fundamental skills, tools, and concepts central to successfully building multi-body and complex shape solid models. You should view the training course manual as a supplement to, not a replacement for, the system documentation and on-line help. Once you have developed a good foundation in the skills covered in this course, you can refer to the online help for information on less frequently used command options.

Training Testimonials

The course was very concise, to the point, and informative. [The Instructor] was very detail oriented and educational.

Rolf Altenhofen

I have never used a program like this in my life and learning something like this is very difficult for me. CATI has been very friendly with helping me. Thank you to everyone. You have changed my life. I still call with questions, but with everything this program can do I'm sure I will have more.
