SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal
|Professional Development Credits||2.00|
|Classroom||2 sessions, 7 hours each|
|Virtual Classroom||5 sessions, 2.5 hours each|
|Prereqs||Students attending this course are expected to have the following:
â?¢ Mechanical design experience.
â?¢ Completed CAD110 SOLIDWORKS Essentials, CAD211 Advanced Part Modeling, and CAD216 Assembly Modeling.
â?¢ Experience with the Windowsâ?¢ operating system.
The goal of this course is to teach you the core concepts of how to build sheet metal parts using SOLIDWORKS mechanical design automation software.
The sheet metal application in SOLIDWORKS is so robust and feature rich that it is impractical to cover every minute detail and still have the course be a reasonable length. Therefore, the focus of this course is on the fundamental skills and concepts central to successfully building sheet metal parts. You should view the training course manual as a supplement to, not a replacement for, the system documentation and on-line help. Once you have developed a good foundation in basic skills, you can refer to the on-line help for information on less frequently used command options.

Working with the Flat Pattern
Additional Sheet Metal Techniques
Converting to Sheet Metal
Multibody Sheet Metal Parts
Forming Tools and Gussets
Additional Sheet Metal Functions
The SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal training guide will be supplied at the beginning of class and is yours to keep.
Students will have been exposed to SOLIDWORKS modeling functionality specific to SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal fabrication. The student will have the knowledge to create SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal components separately or in the context of an assembly and create associated drawings and flat patterns from the initial models.
