Virtual: 8 sessions, 2.5 hours each

Class #: CAD110

The goal of this course is to teach you how to use the SOLIDWORKS mechanical design automation software to build parametric models of parts and assemblies and how to make simple drawings of those parts and assemblies.

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 at a reasonable length. Therefore, the focus of this course is on the fundamental skills and concepts central to the successful use of SOLIDWORKS . 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

  • SolidWorks Basics and the User Interface

  • Introduction to Sketching
  • Basic Part Modeling
  • Modeling a Casting or Forging
  • Patterning
  • Revolved Features
  • Shelling and Ribs
  • Editing: Repairs
  • Editing: Design Changes

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

Students will know how to utilize SOLIDWORKS to create production level parametric models of parts and assemblies. They will be familiar with the SOLIDWORKS user interface, feature manager, sketching tools, and various modeling techniques.

  • Students attending this course are expected to have the following:
  • • Practical work experience.
  • • Experience with the Windows™ operating system.
  • • Completed the first (3) tutorials that are integrated in the SOLIDWORKS software: Lesson 1: Parts, Lesson 2: Assemblies & Lesson 3: Drawings. You can access the online tutorials by clicking Help| SOLIDWORKS Tutorials, within the SOLIDWORKS application.
