SolidWorks: Advanced Modeling

Description

This course will highlight Advanced Part Modeling, Advanced Assembly and making changes within the latest release of SOLIDWORKS. Our training will help participants utilize advanced part sketching and modeling techniques along with feature creation tools to improve product designs by making smart changes faster. Participants will also learn how to reuse existing design geometry when creating new robust design models. Topics can be customized for this class based upon participants’ needs. This Advanced SOLIDWORKS intensive is developed for designers and engineers that want to become more seasoned users. This course is a must for the power users of any major manufacturer who are looking for a competitive advantage.

Topics

Solidworks surfacing
  • Learn advanced selection techniques
  • Create advanced datum features
  • Use advanced sketching techniques
  • Create drafts with complex parting lines
  • Learn to use basic surfaces as design tools 
  • Explore surfaces with respect to top-down design
  • Learn to manage and manipulate import geometry
  • Create advanced offsets for shelling trouble geometry
  • Learn to use top-down design for obtaining the soft touch delineation of a 3D model for manufacturing
  • Learn how to use different advanced reference management techniques
  • Learn to manage failed features more effectively
  • Using curves to drive mechanisms
  • Learn animation and motion analysis
  • Learn to use Rendering more effectively
  • Learn to use Equations effectively to create more robust models and to create a non-proportional scale

Duration

40 hours

Projects

  • Prepare a motorcycle connecting rod model for FEA so that an iterative process for modifications is better utilized, i.e. make a change before each FEA is performed
  • Prepare a prototyped part for Die Casting manufacturing by organizing parts that drive other parts based on specific machining operations
  • This course can be customizable related to client/company projects

Discussion

  • Discuss ‘piece-part modeling’ as opposed to the top-down approach
  • Configurations with examples
  • Multibody Geometry
  • Excel Imports
  • Discuss robust modeling techniques
  • Discuss underlying curve geometry for making more robust models
  • Taking products through to production. Ie. draft, compound parting lines, avoid sink or voids, using special tools to mitigate interference or clearance issues.
