Virtual: 5 sessions, 2.5 hours each

Class #: CAD205

The goal of this course is to teach you how to create engineering drawings of parts and assemblies using SOLIDWORKS mechanical design automation software.

Detailing in SOLIDWORKS is such a robust and feature rich application that it is impractical to cover every minute detail and aspect of the software and still have the course be a reasonable length. Therefore, the focus of this course is on the fundamental skills and concepts central to successfully making engineering drawings. 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 basic skills, you can refer to the on-line help for information on less frequently used command options.

Class Details

  • Review of the Basics

  • Understanding Drawing Templates
  • Customizing the Sheet Format
  • Saving and Testing the Sheet Format File
  • Creating Additional Sheet Formats and Templates
  • Advanced Options for Drawing Views
  • Understanding Annotation Views
  • Advanced Detailing Tools
  • Using Layers
  • Styles and the Design Library
  • Advanced Options for BOM Tables
  • Additional SOLIDWORKS Tables

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

Students will know how to utilize SOLIDWORKS to create 2D drawings of production level parametric models of parts and assemblies. They will be familiar with the SOLIDWORKS user interface as well as tools and techniques for creating quality 2D representations of 3D solid models. They will also gain skills to create and maintain custom drawing templates.

  • Students attending this course are expected to have the following:
  • • Practical work experience.
  • • Completed the course CAD110 SOLIDWORKS Essentials.
  • • Experience with the Windows™ operating system.

Training Testimonials

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

Fantastic instructor.

Jason Hawk

I liked how the case study was at a pace where each student could keep up with each step that the instructor was doing. It enabled each student to learn and be able to complete the lessons on their own.
