TEDCF Ships SolidWorks 2009 Video Training Course

Springville, CA, December 3, 2009 – TEDCF Publishing, a leading publisher of interactive courses for SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor, today announced the availability of SolidWorks 2009: Professional Modeling.

Professional Modeling is a unique training course that shows how the commands work together to create professional models. Author David Melvin, PE explains how to apply techniques and sound processes that maximize your productivity and the quality of your work. You watch computer-based lessons that start with the basics and progressively build a strong understanding of how to use modeling commands in a professional environment. The Professional Modeling course is the first course in a series of courses that will help you use SolidWorks professionally.

The core purpose of 3D CAD is to increase your productivity. You need to know how the commands work, but more importantly you need to know how they work together to create professional models and assemblies.

This course strikes at the heart of the problem by showing you effective methods and techniques for creating professionally constructed models. You start with the basics and progressively build a strong understanding of how the commands work as well as how to use them effectively. This will help you maximize your productivity and the quality of your work.

Study sessions are automatically controlled by the Lesson Player. It tracks your progress and opens on the last lesson you were watching. You can easily review lessons you’ve already watched, and you can search for the lessons you need. All you need is a Windows based computer with speakers.

Lesson Player Attributes:

  • Large Screen Display
  • Caption – Captions can be turned on or off depending on your needs.
  • Automatic Course Layout – The course starts with basic concepts and builds to more advanced concepts.
  • Automatic Book Marking – The course automatically opens on the last viewed lesson.
  • Fully Indexed – The Memory Jogger allows you to enter keyword phrases to find a particular lesson.
  • Lesson Slider Control – Quickly moves you to any point in a lesson.
  • Volume Slider Control – Adjust the volume for your comfort.
  • Time Displays – Total length and current position of each lesson is displayed so you can budget your time.

“SolidWorks is one of the most widely used 3D CAD software packages,” said David Melvin, PE, author of the course. “Almost anyone can quickly and easily use the software, but in order to use it professionally you need to understand sound processes and techniques. This is why the courses produced at TEDCF Publishing focus on the professional use of the software while we explain how the commands work.”
