Mechanical Drawings


Learn Documentation Best Practices!

One of the fundamental tasks in the development of any assembly or product is to create part and assembly drawings. The Mechanical Drawings course 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.

The course is packed with tips and tricks that will help you create professional looking drawings in the shortest time possible. From showing you how to make your drawings print correctly to using advanced methods of creating and controlling section views, you will learn best practices.

As with all our courses your productivity is the forefront of this course. You will learn how to minimize the work required to create your drawings. This not only speeds your work, it minimizes mistakes and simplifies the development of accurate and professional looking drawings. You can focus your attention on drawing details instead extraneous drawing construction. As a result your accuracy will increase.

The SolidWorks 2013: Mechanical Drawings course shows you everything you need to know to fully develop templates and sheet formats. You’ll practice adding all the drawing views in SolidWorks while learning best practices. You’ll use all the dimension commands and annotations, and you’ll setup all types of tables. The course has everything you need.

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