The Professional Modeling course for SolidWorks 2013 is the first in a series of courses. The goal of this course is to teach you sound practices and procedures that speed your work and promotes the construction of stable models.

Models can become unstable and difficult to edit if you don’t use structured construction methods. So this is one of the main topics of this course. You will learn professional methods of creating models. Your models will be easy to edit, and you’ll know why.

The Professional Modeling course explains why one procedure is better than another. You will practice common mistakes and learn professional solutions.

The Advanced Parts and Assemblies course is the next course in the series. It shows advanced methods of creating complex parts and assemblies. You’ll use Excel worksheet to create parts. You’ll practice generating frames while learning about weldments, and you’ll practice adding welds to an assembly.

Top Down design is another aspect of this course. This is when you create an assembly within and single part file. You’ll learn best practices for doing this and how to leverage the power of multi-body modeling.

This course is packed tips and tricks that will make you an expert.

One of the fundamental tasks in the development of any assembly or product is to create part and assembly drawings. The Mechanical Drawings not only shows you how to do this, it shows you how to streamline the process.

Title blocks will automatically fill in when you insert a drawing view into your drawings. Tables will automatically insert where you want them and how you want them to look. Your custom sheet formats will automatically create drawings of any size using templates you create yourself.

By the time you finish this course you will know how to streamline the drawing construction process. Your drawings will look professionally formatted, and ultimately you work will be simplified.
