Classroom: 3 sessions, 7 hours each
Virtual: 8 sessions, 2.5 hours each

Class #: CAE205

The goal of this course is to teach you how to use the SOLIDWORKS Simulation software to help you analyze static 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 Simulation. 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.

Training Testimonials

I learned more from this one week class than an entire semester at a university. The instructor was very knowledgeable of the subject matter. Definitely a good investment of money to take this course.

Joe Mace

Fantastic instructor.

Jason Hawk

I have never used a program like this in my life and learning something like this is very difficult for me. CATI has been very friendly with helping me. Thank you to everyone. You have changed my life. I still call with questions, but with everything this program can do I'm sure I will have more.
