Take Your Skills to a New Level!

The SolidWorks 2015: Advanced Parts & Assemblies course is the second course in the series. It's designed to expand your part modeling skills and establish a strong assembly design and construction practice. You will learn all the details of creating and using configurations, using Excel worksheets to generate parts, creating Weldments and frames, multi-body modeling, and much more.

One of the benefits of working with 3D models is your ability to show your work to others and have them understand what you're doing. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. With SolidWorks you can not only show them 3D models you can make them look real or at least close to real. You do this by customizing materials, which is how the Advanced Parts and Assemblies course starts. You'll learn how to customize materials and appearances, and if you turn on RealView they can look like the real thing.

You can also make threads look like real threads. A standard thread in SolidWorks is simply an image that looks similar to threads, but this course shows you how to make 3D threads that match real world specifications. It's simple, and once you've done it you'll be able to quickly create 3D threads of any size.

This course covers several methods of creating multiple parts within a single part file. You can use Design Tables to generator several different models within a single file. You can create different Configurations in a single part file, and you can use Multi-body Modeling to create parts in a single part file. Each method has its strengths and weaknesses, but this course shows you how to leverage the power of each one.

You'll practice using all the basic and advanced assembly mates. You'll practice working with weldments and adding weld beads, gussets, and end caps, and you'll practice creating frames. You'll create custom frame member shapes like square tubing, and you'll apply end treatments that make your frame members fit together.

This course is packed with best practices, tips, and tricks to assure your models and assemblies are robust, easy to edit, and structurally sound.
