Course Duration : 55 Hours
Solidworks is a parametric CAD software offers an easy-to-use set of tools for 3D mechanical design, and documentation. With a basic design, Solidworks is able to connect to multiple disciplines, easing the communication between designers, engineers, and producers. Solidworks 2015: The Complete Guide is designed to give you a solid understanding of Solidworks 2015 features and capabilities from the basics through to advanced and complex 3D modeling components.
Every course is designed to use all learning styles from text, audio, video, interactivity, quizzes and practical “Let Me Try” examples. You'll follow a workflow-based approach, creating 2D drawings from 3D data, modeling parts, combining parts into assemblies, annotating drawings, using advanced assembly tools, working with sheet metal, presenting designs, and simulation.
To get the most out of this course, we strongly recommend you review every topic within the course, and use all the learning styles to ensure you retain the important information within. We also encourage you to take all the progress tests to ensure you have retained the knowledge, and most importantly practice with the hundreds of real world, Let Me Try examples.
e-Training Course Navigation Strategies:
Beginners: Complete the course in order from beginning to end. Once any topic is completed, you will have full access to it at any time for one year after registration, to use as a resource.
Intermediate/Advanced Users: Use the course as a flexible resource tool to find what you need, whenever you need it. Try the assessment tests first, if you get 80% you can move to the next level, if you get less than 80% you should complete the lecture. This gives you a pre and post assessment score, which can be used to track your skills improvement.
