The goal of this course is to teach you how to create engineering drawings of parts and assemblies using SOLIDWORKS mechanical design automation software.

Detailing in SOLIDWORKS is such a robust and feature rich application that it is impractical to cover every minute detail and aspect of the software and still have the course be a reasonable length. Therefore, the focus of this course is on the fundamental skills and concepts central to successfully making engineering drawings. You should view the training course manual as a supplement to, 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.

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

  • Completion

    Students will know how to utilize SOLIDWORKS to create 2D drawings of production level parametric models of parts and assemblies. They will be familiar with the SOLIDWORKS user interface as well as tools and techniques for creating quality 2D representations of 3D solid models. They will also gain skills to create and maintain custom drawing templates.

  • Prerequisites

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