SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium: Non-Linear Training

CATalyst Premium

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

Class #: CAE505

The goal of this course is to teach you how to use the SOLIDWORKS Simulation software to help you analyze non-linear dynamic structural behavior of your SOLIDWORKS part and assembly models.

The focus of this course is on the fundamental skills and concepts central to the successful use of SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium: Non-Linear modulus. You should view the training course manual as a supplement to, and not a replacement for, the system documentation and on-line help. Once a good foundation in basic skills has been developed, you can refer to the on-line help for information on less frequently used options.

Great instructor! I had a blast in this class and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Mark Boesen

This course made learning SOLIDWORKS about 10 times easier and faster than if I had done it on my own.

Jason Peck

Fantastic instructor.
