SOLIDWORKS Training Course: Learn to Design Using Solidworks

Course Duration: 40 hours

Tuition: $2,200 USD

Overview: Solidworks Training Course Although this class is designed for beginners, it is much more than a beginners course. We teach participants how to design products, as opposed to simply how to use the software. You will, upon completion of this course, be able to utilize dimension manufacturing features in 3D, check dimensional completeness, graphically display dimensional status on 2D drawings, and create complex parts. Automatic interference and collision detection makes sure all parts fit together before you build a physical prototype, reducing cost and shortening the overall design cycle time, for faster introduction to market. The design for this Solidworks training workshop is an introduction to constraint based modeling, utilizing the latest release of Solidworks.

This workflow oriented training course focus is on core-modeling skills in a comprehensive manner which includes topics such as sketching, SolidWorks part modeling, SolidWorks assemblies, detail drawings, and basic model management techniques for changing designs that others may have created.  We also cover alternate workflow ideals that set users up for other modules.

The basic SolidWorks Modeling techniques taught in our Level One class are often not utilized by even the more seasoned & advanced users in your office, especially if they have not previously participated in a Design Engine class in the past. This course includes over fifty comprehensive design tutorials or small projects that enable one to practice these new design workflow & skills by creating parts, assemblies, and drawings and making many changes.  The exercises in this SolidWorks training course are designed to give users the utmost confidence and experience all within one week.
