Expert training on the SOLIDWORKS Essentials.
The two part SOLIDWORKS Essentials course focuses on developing skills and concepts that underpin the successful use of SOLIDWORKS design software and is designed around a process or task-based approach rather than on individual features and functions.
This course is divided in two complementary parts. The first (four day) part focuses on modelling parts and assembly creation. The second (three day) part looks at using assemblies and creating production drawings. We recommend taking both parts at the same time, but we can split your training course to suit your requirements, please let us know if you need to arrange this.
All the fundamental features of SOLIDWORKS are covered including: 2D sketching, part-modelling, assembly modelling including “bottom-up design” and “dynamic motion”, detail drawing creation for parts and assemblies and associative design changes.
Who is the SOLIDWORKS Essentials & Drawings training course for?
The SOLIDWORKS Essentials course is the perfect starter course for beginners, but it’s also great for existing users wanting to refresh their skills and learn the latest modelling techniques and best practices.
At the end of this seven day course, you will be able to confidently model parts and assemble them in either a static assembly or mechanism. You will be able to perform some preliminary stress analysis on single parts using Simulation Xpress, be able to produce detailed drawings of parts or assemblies and to annotate them for production purposes.
Before you attend the course…
You’ll be expected to have some mechanical design experience, as well as experience of using the Microsoft Windows® operating systems. We also recommend that you have completed the SOLIDWORKS tutorial included in the software if at all possible.
We will supply you with a powerful CAD workstation to take your training with us in person at one of our training centres or onsite at your company. If you chose to train online and have suitable microphone/headphones you can connect to our cloud solution, or we can supply you with a laptop if this isn’t possible. Call us on 01223 200690 to find out more.
