|Professional Development Credits||1.00|
|Classroom||1 session, 7 hours|
|Virtual Classroom||3 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.
â?¢ Experience with the Windowsâ?¢ operating system.
The goal of this course is to teach you how to build weldment parts using SOLIDWORKS mechanical design automation software.
The weldment application in SOLIDWORKS is so robust and feature rich that it is impractical to cover every minute detail and still have the course a reasonable length. Therefore, the focus of this course is on the fundamental skills and concepts central to successfully building weldment 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.
Trimming Structural Members
Gussets and End Caps
Working with Weldments
Managing the Cut List
Working with Pipes and Tubing
Weldments and Sheet Metal in Assemblies
The SOLIDWORKS Weldments training guide will be supplied at the beginning of class and is yours to keep.
The Student will have been exposed to SOLIDWORKS modeling functionality specific to SOLIDWORKS Weldments fabrication. The student will have the knowledge to create SOLIDWORKS Weldments and weldment components separately or in the context of an assembly and create associated drawings and flat patterns and/or cut lists from the initial models.
