SOLIDWORKS Advanced Part Modeling

The Advanced Part Modeling course is for SOLIDWORKS users who need to create complex parts or just want to become more productive. You will learn how to use Boolean operations in multibody parts in order to save time, build master models for parametrically driving whole projects from a unique location, reverse-engineer complex models using just a couple of pictures, and master along the way the most advanced solid features including sweeps, lofts, boundaries, and everything there is to know about fillets.

After the training you will be able to:

  • Create complex freeform parts assocated with the consumer product design
  • Create multibody parts and split them to create assemblies
  • Use advanced features to generate custom solid model part designs
