Training can be seen 2 ways –as an investment or a cost. How do you see it? Do you have the time to train yourself on using new software while meeting deadlines? What if you have a fabulous idea but are not sure how to bring it to life? Can you afford to backtrack and correct errors that were easily avoided? Do you want your team to shine as effective SolidWorks users? By taking a few days from your schedules and investing in SolidWorks training you and your team can design quickly, effectively and creatively.
The SolidWorks core skills program consists of 3 courses; Essentials, Part Modeling and Assembly Modeling. I asked one of our Senior Applications Engineers, Joe, to describe the benefits of attending the SolidWorks core skills training courses:
A good foundation is the basis of every successful venture. The SolidWorks Essentials course goes beyond the “picks and clicks” and provides our students with the necessary skills to build this foundation. The best practices covered in this course will significantly reduce the time it takes to become proficient with SolidWorks and prevents the development of “bad habits”.
Building on the lessons learned in the Essentials course, the SolidWorks Part Modeling course introduces the tools that will simplify the process of modeling complex parts. As with the Essentials course, the Part Modeling Course goes beyond the “picks and clicks” and teaches the best practices needed to use these tools efficiently.
The power of parametric modeling can be taken to a new level by creating parts “in-context” of an assembly, so that model changes propagate throughout the assembly. Not understanding the interaction of these “in-context” parts can lead rebuild errors, unexpected model changes and ultimately, to manufacturing errors. The Assembly Modeling course teaches the student how to efficiently manage these “in-context” parts so as to avoid errors.
Other important topics that are covered in the Assembly Modeling course include:
- Editing assemblies.
- Identifying and correcting assembly rebuild errors.
- Working with large assemblies.
The SolidWorks Essentials, Part Modeling and Assembly Modeling courses form the core that is required for efficient use of SolidWorks.
