SolidWorks 2017
FEA Made Simple

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

Need to learn how to use SolidWorks' FEA module? This course makes it easy to learn. Just watch the lessons, and you'll have the confidence to analyze your work.

You'll learn how to apply FEA studies by breaking the process down into simple steps. Each step of the way you learn the details needed to make an accurate analysis. By the time you're finished, you'll know how to simulate loads and the stresses, strains, and deflection produced by them, and you'll know the accuracy of the study.

You don't need to know heavy mathematical concepts to take this course. In fact, you learn simple and effective ways of confirming the accuracy of study results with very little mathematical skills. By the end of the course you’ll be confident about our work.

How do we help you do this? Understanding how all the options work is just the start. You also need to know which ones to use in specific study types. You need to learn the details about the data you input into simulations, the details about operations applied to data, and you need to know how simulation settings affect the quality of your study results.

This course will show you practical ways of working with SolidWorks FEA Simulation. So you'll be able to use it as a tool instead of a mysterious question mark.

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