Credits: 3
Classroom: 2 sessions, 7 hours each
Virtual: 6 sessions, 2 hours each

Class #: CAE305

The goal of this course is to teach you how to use the SOLIDWORKS Motion simulation software to help you analyze the kinematic or dynamic behavior of your SOLIDWORKS assembly model.

The focus of this course is on the fundamental skills and concepts central to the successful use of SOLIDWORKS Motion. You should view the training course manual as a supplement to, and 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

  • Introduction to user interfaces

  • Constraint mapping concepts
  • Kinematic and Dynamic analysis
  • Creating / Reviewing mechanisms
  • General constraints
  • Flexible connectors – Bushings, Motion drivers
  • 3D Contact to simulate realistic interaction between parts
  • Linear and torsional springs
  • Linear and torsional dampers
  • Action only forces and moments
  • Action/Reaction forces and moments
  • Impact forces
  • Create displacement, velocity, acceleration and force graphics
  • Redundancies – Importance and how to avoid them
  • Using Function builder and Expressions to build complex motions and forces
  • Export of results to SolidWorks Simulation (stress analysis)

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

Students will have a strong understanding of how to utilize the tool in SOLIDWORKS Motion to improve their design cycles and their designs.

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

Training Testimonials

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.

Francisco Vega

I was overqualified for this course, but I still enjoyed it and learned a few things. I would definitely recommend this course.

Christopher Daly

In every dealing I have had with CATI, everyone was very knowledgeable about SOLIDWORKS. Without the great support I have had, I really don't think my level of knowing SOLIDWORKS would be as good as it is today.
