MySOLIDWORKS Training in 7 Minutes: Introduction to Surfacing

This MySolidWorks Training post will act as a lead-in to the “Introduction to Surfacing” session now available at no cost on MySolidWorks. While surface modeling tools may seem more complex than solid modeling tools, with the help of MySolidWorks Training you can begin to familiarize yourself with surface modeling. From making a few changes to a machine part or creating complex geometry for plastic or injectable parts, MySolidWorks Training provides a solid starting point to help you get a feel for surfacing.


With surface modeling you can build freeform shapes using SOLIDWORKS mechanical design automation software and have access to tools that help you work with geometry imported into projects. After watching this seven-minute introduction you will:

  • Understand the difference between a surface and solid body in SOLIDWORKS
  • Learn why and when surface modeling should be used

Remember, MySolidWorks Training is a great asset to combine with SOLIDWORKS Instructor-led training. Thanks to My SolidWorks Training, you can learn SOLIDWORKS or brush up on your skills with 10+ hours of content, available at no cost, whenever and wherever you want. Click here to get started.
