Week Long Solidworks Surfacing Workshop

Course Duration: 40 hours

Tuition: $2,500 USD

Overview: Learning Solidworks Surfacing is a must in this competitive work environment. Helping you becoming an expert using Solidworks in this surfacing intensive is our missions. This one-week intensive is a workshop that covers all the basics to advanced constraint based Solidworks surface modeling training. Learn surfacing with respect to ergonomics, plastics, and with respect to how light reflects off of forms. Engineers learn to work with industrial designers while industrial designers learn how to encourage engineers to understand form with respect to light reflections.

Projects: Based upon student interests or job requirements.

Whats Next:  Plastics Part Design, Die Cast Part Design, Mold Design for Plastic Injection.

Similar Course:   Manufacturing Week long Intensive, Plastics Part Design, Die Cast Part Design, Mold Design for Plastic Injection.

Prerequisite: 500 hours or Learning SolidWorks Level 1

Topics:

  • 3D Curves and 2D curves with continuity.
  • Split lines for building surface geometry.
  • Surface Loft and Surface Boundary functions.
  • Rhino or Alias Studio IGES and STEP import as SOLIDWORKS Import Diagnostics.
  • Surface Offsets
  • Extend Surfaces, Surface Trims, and Knits.
  • Manage Draft on complex Sweeps.
  • Learn to create special tool curves and surfaces that will help manage surface geometry.
  • Intersect Curves, projection curves, composite curve, split line curves.
  • Sketch spine on surface.

Solidworks Surfacing Discussions:

  • Alias And Rhino modeling techniques and comparisons of using a parent child constrains modeler.
  • Use Mid-Surfaces as a technique used with top down design along with several top down design techniques available in SolidWorks.
  • 3 part boundary modeling techniques followed by using filled surface to resolve 3 part boundaries.
  • Learn to gain better light reflections and more control over your model.
  • Learn to creating draft with parting surfaces.
  • Learn to manage sweeps with respect to the pull direction of the part for better plastic parts.
  • Discuss techniques with respect to better managing 2D and 3D IGES geometry.
  • Utilize bounding box geometry to manipulate and change geometry rapidly with out failures.
  • Discuss overbuilding with respect to tools and functions inside SolidWorks.
  • Discuss a plan of attack, thinkmaps with modern day surfacing technique.
  • Manage over-molding or co-injection with respect to tools we learned in the class.
  • Utilize freeform to accomplish the same form with out an internal curve structure.
  • Discuss using curve tools to manage light reflections.
  • Discuss G1/G2 continuity and light reflection with respect to product design and Solidworks surfacing in great detail.
  • Discuss workflow with respect to capturing form (building a surface model from looking at a foam model).
  • Discuss proving form by taking advantage of parent child relationships and maximizing equations in sketches and features.
  • Discuss with examples top down design using SolidWorks and surfacing.

Brief:

Introduction to constraint based surfacing modeling using curves and surfaces & making changes utilizing the latest release of Solidworks. This Solidworks surfacing training course is developed for new and seasoned users who want to become proficient learning Solidworks surface modeling all in one week. We help you learn Solidworks, not read to you from a book or exercise. In this course we help design engineers learn how to make changes quickly to set them up for becoming expert faster. As with all Design-Engine classes, participants keep the training material login and password for life.
