SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium: Dynamics Training

Class #CAE510

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