Introduction to Solidworks

Course Description

This course introduces the fundamentals of 3D parametric CAD software for the creation of parts, assemblies, and drawings.  Participants will use SolidWorks software to sketch, create, edit, and constrain 3D solid models, as well as create and dimension 2D drawings per ASME standards from these models.


Topics covered:
• Solidworks Interface
• Part Modeling
• Special Features
• Detail Drawings
• Assembly Modeling

Course Objective

 Upon completion of this course, participants should be familiar with the fundamental 3D capabilities of Solidworks in addition to basic CAD operation, Solidwork related terminology, and computer operation.


Previous experience and understanding of Windows-based computer usage are helpful.
