Learn SolidWorks at your own pace
(PRWEB) March 16, 2013
Solidworks is a computer aided design program used to create 3D models in mechanical engineering. Running solely on the Windows operating system, its parametric, feature-based system for building models of mechanical assemblies was designed as a more intuitive and user-friendly alternative to other 3D modeling programs on the market.
With the introductory course, Learning SolidWorks 2013 Training Video, users can begin creating their own 3D models, parts, and assemblies, in a matter of hours, quickly and effectively integrating SolidWorks into a daily workflow with the guidance of seasoned expert Matt Lombard.
Author Matt Lombard's engineering career has focused on manufacturing engineering, primarily designing electronic assemblies with plastic housings. Lombard has also worked as a SolidWorks implementation consultant and written numerous technical books on computer-assisted design using SolidWorks. In addition to his training practice, he currently works as an independent consultant, specializing in plastic parts and surfacing.
"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."
Lombard's decades of combining practical SolidWorks applications with a training and consulting practice make him the ideal guide for new SolidWorks users. Complex techniques and concepts will become second nature as users learn by producing actual models and assemblies.
After an opening that explains the basics of working in SolidWorks, along with an in-depth exploration of customization options, the training introduces the basic process of designing in SolidWorks, demonstrating how to begin by sketching elements and then creating a full-fledged 3D feature from that sketch.
Learning SolidWorks 2013 Video Training continues, going into extensive detail with features. Lombard explains how to adjust and add details to various kinds of features including plastic parts and metal enclosures. Lombard then explains how to combine these features into assemblies, using a 3D model of a motorcycle as a work project.
The course closes with chapters covering output options. These include visualization techniques such as creating a scene, adding lighting, and various display modes; and publishing models as drawings using various view options.
