MySolidWorks Learning: How to Concept Design

This MySolidWorks Learning post will preview the “How to Concept Design” session now available on MySolidWorks. By participating in this lesson, you will build a foundation for creating conceptual designs in SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual (SWMC).

SWMC mimics the simplicity of pen and paper but diverts from traditional two-dimensional restrictions associated with physical drawings. It can be used to develop concepts using a variety of detail. Capabilities exist to explore concept mechanisms using simple 2D sketches, 3D primitive shapes, full 3D parametric designs, or a combination of techniques.

This lesson on SOLIDWORKS mechanical conceptual will teach you to:

  • Use sketch objects to test concepts in 2D.
  • Use primitives to quickly develop components when a simple 3D representation is required.
  • Use parametric models to create detailed models for a design concept.
  • Explore the power of combining parametric features with direct editing techniques with flexible options for design changes.

Remember, MySolidWorks Learning is a great asset to partner with SOLIDWORKS Instructor-led training.  You can take advantage of My SolidWorks Learning to brush up on SOLIDWORKS skills or introduce yourself to new features and functions. With 30+ hours of content available at no cost, MySolidWorks is ready to take you where you want to go – whenever and wherever you want. Click here to get started.
