2017 Update Class
Each time a new version of SOLIDWORKS is released, GSC conducts one-day classes to get existing users up to speed on all the new features. The class is mainly lecture/discussion with a few exercises to illustrate key enhancements. This course is taught from the "What's New in SOLIDWORKS" book each user will receive at the class. The latest release of SOLIDWORKS has several customer-driven enhancements that make 3D design easier and faster than ever.
Advanced Part Modeling
Advanced Modeling focuses on making freeform-type parts using sweeps, lofts, and blends. You'll go beyond the basics and also learn how to use guide curves, curve paths, and even continuity controls to help you create organic-style geometry in your SOLIDWORKS parts. Bridging, local operations, and other multi-body modeling techniques are also covered.
This course introduces students to the SOLIDWORKS Application Programming Interface (API). The course focuses on the fundamental skills and concepts central to building automation tools. Lessons include macro recording, VB foundations, part and drawing automation, and creating utility scripts. Users will actually create routines to serve as examples they can take back for their own projects.
This is the course to take to learn production assembly modeling in SOLIDWORKS. Learn how to troubleshoot assemblies and make them as efficient as possible. See how SmartMates and assembly configurations can make your life easier as you work with your production assemblies.
Advanced techniques like top-down modeling, in-context features, and assembly structure editing are explained in detail as you learn how to make some of the most powerful SOLIDWORKS features work for you.
CAD Manager's Bootcamp
This half day event is designed to teach you to make the most out of your SOLIDWORKS implementation. Learn best practices for configuring, installing, and automating SOLIDWORKS within your company.
Also discusses troubleshooting techniques to ensure that you are prepared for any situation.
- This couse will cover:
- Best Practices
- Configuring SOLIDWORKS
- Computers and Network
DraftSight training teaches the fundamentals of using the software to create and maintain drawings in DraftSight. Learn how to navigate, create elements, and work with coordinates and layers. File management is also covered in this comprehensive exploration of DraftSight.
This course concentrates on creating drawings of SOLIDWORKS models. Topics range from setting-up templates and sheet formats to laying out drawing views and detailing. Students learn how to create custom drawing templates that utilize custom properties to the full advantage.
Annotations, BOM, optimization, and eDrawings are just some of the many lessons covered in this comprehensive class.
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.
This class teaches basic moldmaking in SOLIDWORKS. Topics include draft analysis, working with imported parts, parting line generation, parting surfaces, shut-offs, and interlocks.
This comprehensive course covers all aspects of sheet metal parts in SOLIDWORKS, from creating a base flange to process plans and flat blank drawings. Learn the difference between converting a part to sheet metal and truly designing a sheet metal part.
New techniques and features like tabs, edge flanges, and miter flanges make SOLIDWORKS an even better sheet metal design tool than before. Even if you've been trained in earlier versions of SOLIDWORKS sheet metal, taking this one-day course will be well worth your time!
SOLIDWORKS Model-Based Definition (MBD)
The goal of this course is to teach you how to use SOLIDWORKS MBD to present product and manufacturing information (PMI) in a 3D PDF file. This includes the use of DimXpert and annotation views combined with the capturing and publishing of 3D views
SOLIDWORKS Routing: Electrical
This class teaches users how to use the routing module in SOLIDWORKS to create routed systems for electrical and conduit applications. Topics include basic electrical routing, electrical routing components, routing with clips, standard cables, electrical data import, electrical drawings, ribbon cables, and electrical conduits.
SOLIDWORKS Routing: Piping & Tubing
This class teaches users how to use the routing module in SOLIDWORKS to create routed systems for tubing and piping applications. Topics include piping routes, tubing routes, piping and tubing changes, pipe and tube routing components, using P&ID, and piping skids.
This class teaches users how to build freeform shapes using SOLIDWORKS mechanical design automation software.
Topics covered include introduction to surfacing, solid-surface hybrid modeling, surface modeling, blends and patches, and master model techniques.
