SOLIDWORKS Advanced


PrintThisPage
Length: 4 days; 8:30 am – 4:30 pm
Prerequisites: SOLIDWORKS Essentials
Description:  SOLIDWORKS Advanced is a four-day training class that 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.
Format:  Classes are scheduled at a GoEngineer training facility and taught by certified SOLIDWORKS instructors. Training manuals will be provided to you on the first day of class. This training may also be taught as a custom class at your location for an additional cost.
