SolidWorks is an industry standard 3D mechanical design program with powerful 3D design capabilities.
This course aims to teach the basics of SolidWorks sketching, 3D modelling, assemblies and drawings through practical exercises. It covers how to use SolidWorks to create parts and assemblies and includes a practical guide to creating models for 3D printing and getting those files printed.
This course is designed for product and industrial designers, drafting professionals, engineers and others with a mechanical background. It is also suitable for people with an interest in modelling and invention and for those with a CAD background looking to upgrade their 3D capability.
At the completion of this course participants should have acquired the skills necessary for a basic working knowledge of SolidWorks.
No previous experience of CAD packages is required. Knowledge of mechanical drawing principles and terminology is useful. Experience with PC operation and the Windows environment is essential.
Comprehensive course notes.
Course notes are provided but a pen is useful. Students should also bring a USB flash drive for transferring and storing files.
Participants will be awarded an RMIT Statement of Participation.
All our trainers are professional industrial or product designers with extensive SolidWorks experience.Printable course flyer
