Introduction to SOLIDWORKS

by Matt Morgan

This course will take you from zero experience to building 3D parts and assemblies, and turn them into production ready manufacturing drawings.

What you'll learn

This course is an introduction to SOLIDWORKS. If you haven’t even started it up yet, this is the course for you. In this course, we will use a piece of engineering history, a small steam engine, to go over an introduction to creating your first 3D model. We’ll start by opening SOLIDWORKS for the first time and the dialog boxes you’ll be faced with. We will explore the SOLIDWORKS interface and explain the regions and toolbars you’ll need to know to begin creating 3D parts and assemblies. We’ll take you step-by-step through the process of taking your design from an idea to 3D models. Then we’ll document those designs by creating production ready manufacturing drawings.
