solid works basic training

Solidworks – Introduction

Course Description
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 Solidworks basic training course, you will learn the basics of how to create parts, assemblies, and drawings using the Solidworks software package.

Who Should Attend
Machine operators, quality control inspectors, NC programmers, shop supervisors, metal-working manufacturing personnel, engineers, engineering managers, and other manufacturing professionals interested in learning how to use the Solidworks software package.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of training, students will be able to:

  • Understand the underlying concepts of 3d modeling
  • Create basic to intermediate solid models using Solidworks software
  • Compose an assembly of multiple parts
  • Detail out blueprints based on solid models or assemblies
