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

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

Jason Peck

[The Instructor] was engaging and answered all of my questions as we progressed through the material.

Jessica Nemitz

This was an exceptional class. I had CAD experience when I started, but now I understand a great deal about SOLIDWORKS. Thank you, ... for all your help and support in the class.
