Mastering the SOLIDWORKS Weldments environment provides you time saving of up to 90% compared to the traditional assembly workflows, for any user who designs structures made out of components with constant profiles. The knowledge you will gain can be applied to various applications such as welded structures, wood decks, fences, stairs or railings. As a bonus, using Weldments allows you to rapidly analyse very large structures with much lower computational resources using SOLIDWORKS Simulation.

After the training you will be able to:

  • Create weldment designs using the weldment tools in SOLIDWORKS
  • Create drawings with Cut-lists and weldment information
  • Add weld beads and weld information to your drawings
  • Use weldments in your assemblies
