Sheet Metal Design


Advance Your Sheet Metal Skills!

The Sheet Metal Design course is the last course in the SolidWorks 2013 series of courses. That is, last but not least. This course amplifies your ability to create professional sheet metal models that match prototype and production samples.

You will learn about Bend Allowances, K-Factors, and Bend Tables. The course explains all the components of sheet metal design in simple to understand steps. So you can rest assured you will know how to apply them to your sheet metal models.

While your instructor explains how all the sheet metal commands work he’ll also show you best practices and sound procedures. So he’ll explain what to do and what not to do. He’ll also explain why. People tend to remember better when they know why something is done in a specific way. So you might see an example of how things can go wrong, and then you’ll learn how to fix the problem.

You’ll also learn structured methods of creating sheet metal assemblies. For example you’ll learn how to build assemblies from the ground up using Bottom Up Design. You’ll practice Top Down Design and explore the power of using this technique. Each step of the way you’ll learn sound practices and procedures.

This course is packed with tips and tricks that will help speed your work, increase the accuracy of your work, and assure you are producing professionally sound models.
