SOLIDWORKS Advanced Part Modeling Training

3 CATalyst Levels

Credits: 3
Classroom: 3 sessions, 7 hours each
Virtual: 6 sessions 3-1/2 hours each

Class #: S201

SOLIDWORKS Advanced Part Modeling is an in-depth exploration into the techniques used to create multibody and complex solid models. This course will investigate and detail the options available for the features presented in SOLIDWORKS Essentials, as well as introduce features that allow for more freeform modeling capabilities.

During this instructor-led course, students will learn how to:

  • Create, manipulate, modify, and manage multibody solids.
  • Utilize and manipulate Splines, 3D sketches, and 3D curves.
  • Understand the application of advanced sweeps, lofts, and boundary features.
  • Use Thread features and Design Library Features.

Completion of SOLIDWORKS Advanced Part Modeling will assure the user’s ability to create or modify practically any solid model.

Training Testimonials

This course made learning SOLIDWORKS about 10 times easier and faster than if I had done it on my own.

Jason Peck

[The Instructor] showed real concern and took a true interest in students' progress. He was extremely helpful and very patient. Always answered each question with a great deal of knowledge and made sure the student understood the concept. In my personal case, he was extraordinarily helpful and I greatly appreciate it. I look forward to taking additional classes in the future.

Tom Kotz

One of the best features of taking a class with CATI is the help provided for questions that come after taking the class.
