The goal of this course is to introduce the student to the SOLIDWORKS Application Programming Interface (API). Using the SOLIDWORKS API is a great way to automate design tasks and customize SOLIDWORKS. Just about everything available in the SOLIDWORKS user interface is available through the API.

The SOLIDWORKS API is so robust and feature rich that it is impractical to cover every detail 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 building automation tools. Once you have developed a good foundation in basic skills, you can use the documentation and abundant online resources to develop your applications.

"Exceptional class. I had little to no CAD experience when I started, and I now understand a great deal about SOLIDWORKS."

- Scott Joji, Life Fitness

"One of the best features of taking a class with CATI is the help provided for questions that come after taking the class."

- Walter Bauer
