Description

Simple circular fillets taught at beginner level SOLIDWORKS cannot create the complex geometries needed from ergonomic or molded part design. In this course, SOLIDWORKS - Advanced Filleting Techniques, you'll see many alternative filleting methods for creating these shapes, which can give you a lot of control over these blends. While modeling a plastic gas can from scratch, you will be introduced to the fillet and chamfer features in their entirety. Failing fillet features will also be seen, and new fillets will be used to fix them. By the end of this course, you will have a solid grasp of the fundamentals, best practices, and familiarity with the filleting tool so the fastest, and best option can be used during your CAD modeling process. Software required: SOLIDWORKS.

Course Overview
Hello, my name is Shivani Patel, and welcome to my course SOLIDWORKS - Advanced Filleting Techniques. I'm an elite applications engineer with GoEngineer and a certified SOLIDWORKS expert. This SOLIDWORKS training will begin with the most basic of tasks in fillets and chamfers. So if you are new to SOLIDWORKS, that's okay. As we build our model together, you'll get practice with the fundamentals, and by the end of the first module you'll have heard all the best practices we recommend to keep model performance high, and you'll know the most common filleting techniques so you can modify your designs efficiently. If you're more familiar with filleting, take a closer look at the more specific clips of this course. We are going to go into depth on particular fillet options and parameters, discuss precisely what they mean, and then learn how to use them in various troubleshooting scenarios. By the end of this course, you'll be able to build ergonomic shapes with the confidence that you're modeling them the best way possible. Thanks guys for tuning in, and I hope you'll join me in this deep dive into blended edges with the SOLIDWORKS - Advanced Filleting Techniques course here at Pluralsight.
