SOLIDWORKS Training Class Descriptions

Class #: S411

Translation Techniques is a course developed by Computer Aided Technology that dives into the multiCAD world. This course is an excellent for users importing neutral and native file types into SOLIDWORKS and users who commonly work with legacy data. This class explores the best practices and techniques for importing and exporting 2D and 3D geometry into SOLIDWORKS.

During this instructor-led course, students will learn:

  • How to repair, manipulate, and utilize imported geometry to its full potential.
  • What file types can be imported and exported.
  • The best file types to import and why.
  • Understand the different import and export options.
