SOLIDWORKS Essentials


PrintThisPage
Length: 4 days; 8:30am to 4:30pm
Prerequisites: We recommend completing the introductory SOLIDWORKS Tutorials, lessons one through three.
Description: SOLIDWORKS Essentials is a four-day training class that teaches how-to use SOLIDWORKS to build 3D parametric models of parts and assemblies and prepare drawings of those parts and assemblies.
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.
