Solidworks – Advanced

Overview:
Solidworks is an engineering software package that allows engineers and designers to create detailed 3-dimensional representations of their ideas.  These 3d models can then be used for virtual prototyping and simulation, blueprints or specifications, and photorealistic renders among other things.  In this course, people with a basic understanding of Solidworks will learn its more advanced features and methods of increasing efficiency with the software.

Course Outline:
Brief Review of Basic Concepts
Solidworks Customization
3d Sketches
Advanced Sketching Tools
Linking Dimensions
Equations & Equation Editor
Configurations
Exploded Assemblies
Surfacing Concepts
Surfacing Tools
Advanced Feature Tools
Advanced Evaluation Tools for Parts & Assemblies
Sheetmetal Tools
Simulation Xpress
Photoview 360 Rendering
Data Management and Project Portability

Students Will be Able To:
Create complex solid models of almost any object imaginable
Utilize configurations to control model features
Set up shortcuts to increase efficiency
Compose scenes for photorealistic renders of 3d models
Run basic physical stress simulations on parts

Modes of Teaching and Learning:
Lecture/discussion
Individual work sessions
Group work sessions

Reference Material:
Solidworks Help Files

Who Should Attend:
Machine operators, quality control inspectors, NC programmers, shop supervisors, metal-working manufacturing personnel, engineers, engineering managers, and other manufacturing professionals who have limited experience with Solidworks software and would like to learn more of its features.
