Prerequisites: SOLIDWORKS Essentials

Description: The SolidWorks Advanced course builds upon the Essentials lessons to provide instruction on advanced featues and capabilities in SOLIDWORKS. Advanced Part Modeling teaches you how-to use multi‐body solids, sweeping and lofting features, and the more advanced shaping capabilities of SOLIDWORKS. Assembly Modeling teaches how-to maximize your use of the assembly modeling capabilities of SOLIDWORKS.
