"I had a great time. My favorite part was being able to free-model and model whatever we wanted. I learned many things and that makes me happy because I love to learn and I haven't learned much since school got out."

Lesson 1: Part Modeling

Learn the basic steps for modeling a part inside SolidWorks.  We will look at the User Interface as well as getting started creating a 2D sketch and turning that into a 3D model.

Lesson 2: Assemblies

Learn how to take multiple parts and put them together in an assembly with mates. Learn about how different mates can give you different assembly motion.

Lesson 3: Drawings

Learn how to document your design with different Front, Top and Right side drawing views as well as section and detail views. We may need to relay information about the part geometry so we can get the part manufactured in the future.

Lesson 4: Animations

We are going to learn how to create an animation of our assembly. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then being able to rotate around an assembly and show how it operates is priceless.

Lesson 5: Textures

We are going to learn about changing the colors and display of our model. If all of our parts are gray, then our assemblies are going to look boring. Learn about textures, and different display options for our models.

Lesson 6A: 3D Printing – GrabCAD

We have two different videos showing the procedures for either using GrabCAD Print or Insight to slice, create toolpaths and 3D print our models.

Lesson 6B:3D Printing – Insight

We have two different videos showing the procedures for either using GrabCAD Print or Insight to slice, create toolpaths and 3D print our models.
