Creo to SolidWorks or SolidWorks to Creo: A Week-Long Intensive
Course Duration: 5 Days
[accordion autoclose=false openfirst=true clicktoclose=true]
[accordion-item title=”Overview +” state=open]This class is for those design or engineering teams that have been forced to switch parametric software packages. We also understand you are probably upset, however we would like to make the transition as smooth and rewarding as possible in this one week intensive. Whether you are coming from Creo or from SolidWorks, this course makes the assumption you are experienced at one or the other and is you need to get you up to speed quickly in the new package. Design Engine instructors help you learn the new software package at a rapid pace and at a much higher level all in one week. Ask your account manager for assistance with a customization process. Our instructors know both packages and can ease your learning experience plus we will get through much more material in one-week.[/accordion-item]
[accordion-item title=”Prerequisite +” state=closed]Participants should have better than a working knowledge of Creo or SolidWorks depending upon what software their team has switched from.
[accordion-item title=”Onsite Training +” state=closed]This and all Design-Engine courses are offered onsite at your facility. Call to speak to an account manager to arrange a class at 312.226.8339 today.[/accordion-item]

Did your company choose to switch design engineering packages? This course is for those who know one package already and have been tasked to learn the other. Introduction to constraint based modeling, assembly, detailing & making changes utilizing the latest release of the package you are switching to. This training course is developed for seasoned users who want to become proficient learning the new package all in one week. We help you learn the software, not read to you from an exercise. In this course we help design engineers learn how to make changes quickly to set them up for becoming expert faster. As with all Design-Engine classes participants keep the training material login and password for life.
