In this SolidWorks 2013 training video Matt Lombard will teach you how to create 3D CAD models using the tools and techniques made available to you in this popular software from Dassault Systems. This training course is designed for the absolute beginner, and no previous 3D CAD software experience is required in order to get the most out of this training video.
You will start with the basics of SolidWorks 2013, exploring the newly designed interface. Matt will guide you though customizing the interface to help you work efficiently, and then directs you right into using the sketch tools. This video tutorial uses real-world examples throughout to enforce the skills you are being taught. Matt covers basic tools and techniques such as creating linkages, fillets and mirroring. He walks you through the tools for plastic parts, and sheet metal modeling. You will learn simple sweeps and lofts, creating part drawings and how to build assemblies. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
By the time you have completed this introduction to SolidWorks 2013, you will have a solid grasp on creating drawings and assemblies using this 3D mechanical modeling software. This computer based training tutorial focuses on building a solid foundation of the basics, so that you can continue on and grow your skill set to create more complex models and assemblies.
