There is a wide variety of resources available to help you become a SOLIDWORKS pro. These resources and products include the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, PDM, Simulation, CAM, Electrical, Visualize, Inspection, Composer, and more. Whether you are ramping up for a certification or looking for help to complete a project at hand, the resources listed below should be able to provide everything you to become a SOLIDWORKS Pro!

1. SOLIDWORKS Tutorials:

The tutorials accessed directly within the SOLIDWORKS interface are a great place to start for any topics that may be new to users. There is a large selection of SOLIDWORKS tutorials available, from basic sketches and features to advanced simulations. The step-by-step tutorials allow users to click the commands through the Tutorials window to show users where a command is saving users time from having to track it down on their own. To access tutorials, go to the question mark tab in the top right corner of the SOLIDWORKS interface and select Tutorials (if using 2020 SP2 or earlier, Tutorials will be listed under the Help tab).

2. YouTube Tutorials:

YouTube has many videos to guide users on just about any SOLIDWORKS product. While YouTube is a great resource for finding tips and tricks, there can be a lot of videos that show an older version of SOLIDWORKS or are not very clear, so users may need to filter through content before finding what they need. Being able to access YouTube at any time or place makes this option appealing to all users. Check out the TriMech YouTube page for additional content: https://www.youtube.com/@Trimech

3. SOLIDWORKS Help page:

The official SOLIDWORKS Help page provides detailed documentation on features, functionalities, add-ins, What’s New content, troubleshooting, and release notes. From within the SW interface, users can go to the question mark tab in the top right corner and select Help to access the help page (if using 2020 SP2 or earlier, help page access will be listed under the Help tab).

4. SolidWorks User Forums and Communities:

Participating in forums on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform allows users to ask questions to a worldwide SOLIDWORKS community. Users can share their experiences and learn from others. The combined knowledge of the SOLIDWORKS community can be a great way to learn new tricks and techniques.

Going to live events like user groups is another way to learn from other SOLIDWORKS enthusiasts in your area, as well as to network. These groups often organize to include speakers who share valuable insight and real-world tips on a wide range of topics.

Speaking of live events, try attending 3DEXPERIENCE World! This is the largest gathering of SOLIDWORKS enthusiasts where the latest information and technology is shared with the world.
