“This is an excellent way to learn SolidWorks with a hands on approach. This excelled over a self-paced course I had previously taken. The lessons are broken up in shorter sessions and the instructor showed different methods to achieve the design, demonstrating the effect of the order items are selected/created and offering best practices to allow future editing.”

Get the SOLIDWORKS Skills You Need!

Our SolidWorks training courses don’t just show you how the commands work, they give you the skills you need to use them effectively.

You know that 3D-CAD is supposed to increase your productivity, but in order to do this you need to know the details about how the commands work. More importantly you need to know effective ways of getting your work done.

Our courses strike at the heart of this problem by showing you how to be effective. 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.

SOLIDWORKS Training Beyond the Commands!

We take your training beyond the commands by showing you what works and what doesn’t work. In order to truly understand the benefit of using one method over another you need to know why on method is better than another. One method may be better in a specific circumstance, or you may just prefer one method over another. The bottom line is you need to know your choices.

When it comes to building models and assemblies that are structurally sound you need to apply best practices. If you use poor modeling practices geometry can change without your knowledge. Parts won’t fit and function correctly in assemblies, and typically this means scrapping your work and starting over.

When you use best practices your models are bulletproof from the start. You can edit your models without causing problems, and scrapping your work should be an extremely rare occurrence.

Quite a few people use the trial and error approach to learning SolidWorks, but this can take year. Skip wasting your time and use our courses to learn how to get the job done right.
