2014/03/22 - Certified SolidWorks Tutorial Series - From March 22nd to May 24th, 2014

posted Feb 7, 2014, 11:26 AM by Anton Dubov   [ updated Feb 12, 2015, 11:52 AM ]

These tutorial sessions are designed to introduce the students to the basics of part modeling, assembly design, and drafting in SolidWorks.                                               

After the completion of the tutorial sessions, the students will be able to create components using the extrude, revolve, loft and sweep functions. They will also be able to incorporate fillets, chamfers, holes, ribs, drafts, and shell features into their models. In addition, students will go even one step further in component creation by knowing how to use the advanced modeling tools such as advanced sweep and lofts via 2D and 3D curves. Advanced incorporation features such as warp, shape, indent, deform, mounting boss, snap hooks, vents, etc. will also follow suite.  Lastly, there will be coverage of the top/down assembly design and bottom-up assembly design approaches.  The bottom-up assembly design approach will allow the student to take their assembled modeling components and generate various views.                    

In summary, through these tutorial sessions, students will understand and be well-practiced in both the basics and advanced options relevant to SolidWorks part modeling, top-down assembly design, and drafting.  The tutorial sessions are updated reguarly with industrial standards by featuring the latest version of SolidWorks and all of its up to date options.

The certificate of completion will be issued by the Metro College of Technologies at the end of this tutorial sessions. Interested students may also take part in a Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA) exam to utilize their well-practiced knowledge gained from these tutorials. Further details will be provided during the sessions.
