SOLIDWORKS Advanced Part Modeling

Learn how to create complex models

Training Course Contents

The Advanced Part Modeling course is for SOLIDWORKS users who need to create complex parts and want to learn how to use more advanced features; including sweeps, lofts, boundaries, and every type of fillet.

Also in the course are best practices for creating efficient parts including using Boolean operations in multibody parts in order to save time. Building master models for parametrically driving whole projects. Plus reverse-engineering complex models with sketch pictures.

This training course will help you to:

  • Create complex freeform parts associated with consumer product design.
  • Create multibody parts and split them to create assemblies.
  • Use advanced features to generate custom solid model part designs.

Training Methods

Choose from three different training methods available to you

SOLIDWORKS Group Training

Group/Public Training

Receive SOLIDWORKS training as a group in a traditional classroom environment.

Classes can be taken in one of our 12 training locations across Canada using SOLIDWORKS approved training content and methodologies.

  • Cost effective training method.
  • Leave the office to concentrate on learning.
  • Learn more through group questions and feedback.
SOLIDWORKS Online Training

Live Online Training

With our online training you will experience an interactive learning environment where you can give feedback, gain access to the SOLIDWORKS training files and get time to work on training exercises.

  • Online courses are typically half day sessions.
  • More effective than video based training, with recorded videos learners are often not as focused on the training and skip exercises.
SOLIDWORKS Onsite Training
