Training Course


Class #ELE150

The goal of this course is to teach you how to use SOLIDWORKS PCB to design and optimize outputs for manufacturability so that you stay competitive in today’s innovative design environment.

SOLIDWORKS PCB brings a collaborative element to focus with seamless workflow collaboration with SOLIDWORKS. During this course, we will cover many of the commands and options in detail. However, it is impractical to cover every minute detail and still have the course be reasonable in length. Therefore, the focus of this course is on the skills, tools, and concepts central to successfully working with SOLIDWORKS PCB.
