Course Outline
The purpose of this course is to familiarize students with Solid Works, a parametric design application used commonly for mechanical/industrial solid modeling. The course begins with an overview of the sketching environment where students learn to create 2D objects such as lines and arcs. Definition is then added to the sketch including dimensions and geometric relationships. Solids are then quickly created by converting the sketches into 3D models. Solids are then arranged into assemblies where interference and motion can be studied. Professional technical drawings can then be generated in accordance with Industry standards.

Who should attend?

Mechanical/Industrial Designers, Interior Decorators, Engineers, Technologists, CNC Machinists, AutoCAD operators, or any individual wanting to go to the next design level and learn the leading software for 3D Modeling.

Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
There is quite a bit of reading in this course, more excercises and practical training on how to read the drawings would make it more interesting.
