SOLIDWORKS Motion Simulation
Designed for users who would like to become productive quickly in using SOLIDWORKS Motion. This course teaches you how to use the SOLIDWORKS Motion simulation package to study the kinematics and dynamic behavior of your SOLIDWORKS assembly models.
The course provides both essential and advanced sessions on the basics of building, simulating, and refining a mechanical design system from suspension steering systems and drive shafts to backhoes, cams, gears, and actuators.
