Software training firm InfiniteSkills, Inc. last week released its Solidworks 2012 Advanced Tutorial, a course geared toward users experienced with Solidworks. The instructional video course offers to help users master the intricate techniques of advanced design with the market-leading CAD application.
Solidworks is a 3D computer aided design program for mechanical engineering. It uses a parametric, feature-based system for building models of mechanical assemblies.
The InfiniteSkills Solidworks 2012 Advanced Training Video - DVD teaches advanced design in Solidworks by focusing on the design of basic mechanical objects. For instance, a V6 engine design is used to illustrate advanced assembly, while a sleek motorcycle helmet is used to illustrate how to model complex surfaces.
According to author and mechanical engineer Matt Lombard, the courses primary focuses is on three components of advanced mechanical design: multi-body modeling, surface modeling, and working with assembly tools and advanced mates. The course also explores topics such as working with advanced mates, using master model techniques, creating advanced assemblies, and file management.
Lombard's engineering background has focused on manufacturing engineering, primarily of electronic assemblies with plastic housings. He designs complex surfaced components, plastic parts and assemblies, and has written numerous technical books and authored instructional courses in other digital media.
"The biggest challenge to a Solidworks course," Lombard says, "is to come up with models that are both interesting for the viewer and can be used to illustrate the necessary techniques. It's important to keep the user in mind at all levels of course-design, and I think we've done that."
The Solidworks 2012 Advanced Video Training - DVD, opens the door for experienced users to maximize the capabilities of Solidworks power to model surfaces and complex assemblies, putting high-end design right at the user's fingertips.
Free demo videos and a full list of course contents can be found on the Solidworks 2012 Advanced Tutorial training page on the company website:
InfinteSkills offers the Solidworks 2012 Advanced Tutorial either as a DVD or a direct download from the company website at a retail price of $99.95. Though Solidworks is specifically for Windows, the InfiniteSkills tutorials are compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems. Shipping is available around the globe. Additionally, InfiniteSkills tutorials are supported by project files which correspond to examples in the videos.
