SOLIDWORKS Advanced Part Modeling Training

3 CATalyst Levels

Credits: 3
Classroom: 3 sessions, 7 hours each
Virtual: 6 sessions, 2.5 hours each

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.

[The Instructor] was very observant as to participant level of understanding, and slowed his pace, or repeated a sequence to ensure the concepts were understood.

Mark Fritsche

This course and the instructor were very helpful for building my basic understanding of SOLIDWORKS. Overall I enjoyed the experience and look forward to taking more courses with this facility.

Eric Kippes

Class went smooth and the information sunk in really well.
