SOLIDWORKS Motion helps SOLIDWORKS assembly designers learn how to analyze the behavior of their assemblies in real-world environments using physics-based calculations. Motion studies simulate the mechanical operation of motorized assemblies and the physical interaction of their components. Studies can be created to determine factors such as: power consumption, interference between moving parts, joint forces, velocities, and accelerations. This course uses a process-based approach to walk users through the procedures necessary to solve assembly motion problems. The use of the case studies is designed to highlight common commands, options, and menus to drive the user towards success in Motion.

During this instructor-led course, the user will learn:

  • Model preparation for motion analysis.
  • Introduction to motion theory.
  • Motion control using SOLIDWORKS mates or solid body contact.
  • Mechanical dampers, springs, joints, and Cam synthesis.
  • Motion-based optimization of assemblies.
  • Event-based motion.
  • Transferring Motion loads to SOLIDWORKS Simulation.

Completion of SOLIDWORKS Motion Simulation will provide users with a confidence in the Motion tools and capabilities to help utilize them to simulate and analyze the real-world motion of their designs.

Training Testimonials

Fantastic instructor.

Jason Hawk

[The Instructor] showed real concern and took a true interest in students' progress. He was extremely helpful and very patient. Always answered each question with a great deal of knowledge and made sure the student understood the concept. In my personal case, he was extraordinarily helpful and I greatly appreciate it. I look forward to taking additional classes in the future.

Tom Kotz

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