This course is an advanced continuation of Solid Works Level 1. It covers advanced modeling techniques and automation of the design process.

Course Outline

If you want to study Solidworks in depth without spending a fortune, this is the course for you. This course is an advanced continuation of Solid Works Level 1. It covers advanced modeling techniques and automation of the design process. Students will design complex 3D models, Surfaces, Sheet Metal parts, Moulds and Weldments through step-by-step lectures and hands on practice with real mechanical parts and industrial products as design samples. The course includes Finite Element Analysis simulation, a useful analysis tool applied for critical design decisions. Students will learn to create photo-real images of several design projects while applying the concept of eco-design as a focus in the design approach.

NOTE: The Soliworks full-time courses are a segment of the CAD TECHNOLOGIST DIPLOMA PROGRAM, which is approved as a Vocational Program under the Private Career College Act, 2005)

Who should attend

Mechanical/Industrial Designers, Interior Decorators, Engineers, Technologists, CNC Machinists AutoCAD operators who want to go to the next design level or any individual who wants to 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.
