Courses in this path
This series of courses takes you through an introduction to SOLIDWORKS. You'll then move into the essentials of creating parts, assemblies and drawings. The courses covering the essentials will teach you the basics of part design, editing, and reusing geometry with patterns and symmetry. You can then take those parts into assemblies and communicate those designs with professional manufacturing drawings.
Once you’ve mastered the essentials, you'll improve your skills in designing multi-body parts. Multi-body parts will be your stepping stone into the powerful functionality of sheet metal weldments and mold tools. You'll also learn how you can include complex curvature to your designs and improve aesthetics. You'll learn to easily create multiple versions of your parts and assemblies and explore display and visualization options.
This last section will take you into advanced functionality, exploring filleting options, and will introduce surfacing tools. You will explore the powerful tools to help you build parts in the context of the assembly to create the best designs and insure proper fit.
