How do you prepare your students to work for talented SolidWorks customers, like Franck Muller Watchland? You need to start with the fundamentals. My colleagues from the SolidWorks Web Team put together a series of 200 videos to help our users learn about SolidWorks and SolidWorks Simulation.
SolidWorks is more than a 3D modeling tool. This software application allows you to design a product, simulate its operation in real world conditions, and prepare components to be manufactured.
I have outlined a few of my favorite videos to help explain our SolidWorks tools – all in one interface:
SolidWorks 3D CAD Fundamentals - introduction to SolidWorks in a fun, cartoon way.
SolidWorks Assemblies - visualize how parts fit together and simulate complex mechanisms
SolidWorks 2D Drawings - create production ready drawings for manufacturing and communication
3D Animations and Photorealistic Rendering - create powerful, images and animations
Design Analysis - Finite Element Analysis, Kinematics, Computational Fluid Dynamics,and fun with physics
CAD Library – Download millions of free part and assembly models
Design for Costing - Estimation and quoting for manufacturing costs
SolidWorks Sustainability – Life cycle assessment of the environmental impact of your designs
Sheet Metal - Create flat and formed parts and sheet metal drawings
Mold Design - Develop plastic parts for manufacturing
Weldments - Automate and document weld structures
Electrical Cable and Routing - Create the cable harness model, wire routing and wiring diagrams
Piping and Tubing - 3D design of piping, hydraulics, and other systems
