SolidWorks 2015
FEA Made Simple

This SolidWorks FEA training course is for both beginner and advanced users.

The goal of FEA Made Simple for SolidWorks 2015 is to show you how to simplify your work and turn SolidWorks Simulation into a tool that enhances your productivity. It doesn’t teach heavy mathematical concepts. It teaches you how to use FEA. You’ll learn simple methods of confirming the accuracy of study results, and by the end of the course you’ll be confident about our work.

You do this by understanding how SolidWorks FEA works. You need to know how all the options work and what they do as well as which ones to use. As indicated by the name, this course makes it simple. You’ll learn the details about the data you input into your simulations, the details about operations applied to data, and you’ll learn how simulation settings affect the quality of your study results.

So practical SolidWorks FEA Simulation skills are taught in this course.

You can use SolidWorks Premium, SolidWorks Simulation Professional, or SolidWorks Simulation Premium with this course.
