SOLIDWORKS Essentials is an exploration of the fundamental techniques required to bring innovation alive in three dimensions. This class will provide the foundation and skills required for creating basic parts and assemblies, 2D documentation, and product management for novice and experienced users.

During this five-day instructor-led course, students will learn:

  • The key characteristics of a feature-based parametric solid modeling tool.
  • The organization of the SOLIDWORKS interface, along with a variety of tools and workflows to improve the efficiency of the design process.
  • Best practices to apply "design intent" to a fully associative modeling environment.
  • The processes for: using sketch tools to create solids, modifying them into more complex shapes, inserting them into assemblies and subassemblies, and finally representing them in drawings to fully communicate their design intent.
  • A full day dedicated to review, student collaboration, and custom content developed and delivered only by Computer Aided Technology.

Completion of SOLIDWORKS Essentials will prepare the designer to efficiently create, modify, and communicate their designs more effectively.

    Introduction to SOLIDWORKS Basics and the User Interface Introduction to Sketching Basic Part Modeling Symmetry and Draft Patterning Revolved Features Shelling and Ribs Editing: Repairs Editing: Design Changes Configurations Global Variables and Equations Using Drawings Bottom-Up Assembly Modeling Using Assemblies Student Collaboration and Custom Content by Computer Aided Technology

The SOLIDWORKS Essentials training guide will be supplied at the beginning of class and is yours to keep.

Students will know how to utilize SOLIDWORKS to create production level parametric models of parts and assemblies. They will be familiar with the SOLIDWORKS user interface, feature manager, sketching tools, and various modeling techniques.
