This is an excellent introduction to SOLIDWORKS, giving the student the skills and knowledge necessary to make full use of SOLIDWORKS' power to model and annotate real products. Taught from the end-user's viewpoint, SOLIDWORKS will come alive as a real-world tool applicable to everyday engineering problems, as opposed to a static computer program.
The focus of this course is on designing parts, starting with proper sketching techniques through feature creation and editing to configurations and troubleshooting. Students are also introduced to assemblies and basic drawing sheet creation. This is a must-have course for anyone using SOLIDWORKS.
