- Course Outline
The purpose of this course is to familiarize students with SolidWorks, a parametric design application used for solid modeling. The course begins with an overview of the sketching environment where students learn to create 2D objects. Definition is added to the sketch including dimensions and geometric relations. Solids are then quickly created by converting the sketches into 3D models. These solids are arranged into assemblies where interference and motion can be studied. Professional technical drawings can then be generated in accordance with industry standards. The course follows a systematic teaching approach which includes step-by-step instructions along with clearly illustrated screen captures. Students will be exposed to practical activities such as taking measurements and designing a mechanical part or assembly.
Who should attend: Industrial Designers, Mechanical Designers, Structure Designers, Engineers, Technologists, Machinists or anybody that want to learn an easy to use and yet powerful CAD program.
