SOLIDWORKS Advanced Surface Modeling Training

2 CATalyst Levels

Credits: 2
Classroom: 2 sessions, 7 hours each
Virtual: 4 sessions 3-1/2 hours each

Class #: S401

SOLIDWORKS Surface Modeling is intended to provide alternative techniques to solid modeling by showing a ground-up surface modeling approach. This course will reveal the intimate details of how SOLIDWORKS represents solids using adjacent surfaces and appearances.

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

  • Understand the difference between surface and solid bodies.
  • Create, manipulate, trim, knit, thicken, and convert surfaces.
  • Use surface features: Extrude, Sweep, Revolve, Loft, Boundary, and Fill.
  • Make solid-surface hybrids.
  • Employ advanced surface modeling techniques.
  • Repair and modify imported geometry.

Completion of SOLIDWORKS Surface Modeling will equip the user with powerful alternatives for creating more complex designs.

Class Details

  • Understanding Surfaces

  • Introduction to Surfacing
  • Solid-Surface Hybrid Modeling
  • Repairing and Editing Imported Geometry
  • Advanced Surface Modeling
  • Blends and Patches
  • Master Model Technique

The SOLIDWORKS Advanced Surface Modeling training guide will be supplied at the beginning of class and is yours to keep.

Students will learn skills in working with advanced assembly techniques and methodologies. The student will gain the ability to build complex shapes with the surface modeling functionality within SOLIDWORKS as well as student the techniques required to make robust solid models from the surface models.

Training Testimonials

Thanks. I learned a lot and have a better understanding of SOLIDWORKS.

Matt Andren

I was unsure how much I would benefit from this training since I have been using SOLIDWORKS for the past 6 months and feel proficient in assembly modeling. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of things I learned in the class and would recommend it to others as long as you are willing to learn new ways to do the same tasks.

Joel Chaplin

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.
