What you'll learn

Have you ever had an assembly that you need to line things up and control movement? This course, SOLIDWORKS - Advanced Mates, will help you learn to use all the more advanced and mechanical mates. You will learn how the mechanical mates simulate real world interactions between moving parts, and you will get to see your design in action. You'll also see how limit mates for distance/angle will allow for controlled movement with ease. When you're finished with this course, you'll not only know how to use these mates, but you will know when to use these mates to control your assemblies for real life solutions to complicated assemblies. Software required: SOLIDWORKS (2016 Preferred).
