Course Duration: 40 hours

Tuition: $2,200 USD

Overview: Solidworks Training Level 1 This SolidWorks training class is for non-degree participants,  engineers, drafters, industrial designers, mechanical engineers and anyone else interested in learning Solidworks in just one week.  Although this class is designed for beginners, it is much more than a introductory course because we teach participants how to design products, as opposed to simply how to use the software.  This set of intelligent training design tools minimize training potential and let you quickly detail designs and assemblies. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to

dimension manufacturing features in 3D, check dimensional completeness, and graphically display dimensional status on 2D drawings and create rather complex parts. Automatic interference and collision detection makes sure all parts fit together before you build a physical prototype, reducing cost and shortening the overall design cycle for faster time to market. The design for this Solidworks training class is as an introduction to constraint based modeling, utilizing the latest release of SolidWorks.

This workflow training course focus is on core-modeling skills in a comprehensive manner which includes topics such as sketching, Solidworks part modeling, Solidworks assemblies, detail drawings, and basic model management techniques for changing designs that others may have created.  We also cover alternate workflow ideals that set users up for other modules.  The basic Solidworks Modeling techniques taught in our Level One class are often not utilized by even the more seasoned & advanced users in your office, especially if they have not previously participated in a Design Engine class in the past. This course includes over fifty comprehensive design tutorials or small projects that enable one to practice these new design workflow & skills by creating parts, assemblies, and drawings and making many changes.  The exercises in this Solidworks training course are designed to give users the utmost confidence and experience all within one week.

Onsite Training: This and all Design-Engine courses are offered also onsite at your facility.  Call to speak to an account manager to arrange a class 312.226.8339 today.
