Save yourself some time by creating parts and assemblies faster than ever. This course introduces how to create and manage configurations in SOLIDWORKS Design Software. Software required: SOLIDWORKS.

What you'll learn

The world of manufacturing is full of variations of similar shapes. In this course, SOLIDWORKS Essentials - Configurations and Display States, you'll learn how to save time by quickly configuring parts and assemblies. First, you'll learn what configurations are, how to create them, and how to apply edits to certain configurations. Next, you'll see some of the advanced tools for creating and editing configurations quickly and efficiently, as well as what display states are and how they're similar to configurations. Finally, you will get to see how configurations impact the other two types of files in Solidworks besides part files, assembly files, and drawing files. When you're finished with this course, you'll be familiar with many ways to optimize designs with slight or extreme variations. Software required: SOLIDWORKS.
