Learn how to create bulletproof models. The SolidWorks 2016: Professional Modeling course shows you tips and tricks that will speed up your work and help assure your models are structurally sound. Beginner and advanced users should start with this course because it provides founding concepts for advanced procedures discussed in later courses.

It starts by introducing you to standard templates, and then it shows you how to create a custom part template. This template will be used and updated throughout the course. As you learn more about SolidWorks you'll learn more about how to change and improve the template. So the first template you create will serve as a teaching tool as well as a platform for creating new part files.

Some of the first settings you'll apply to your new template define the drafting standard you'll be using. Your template will use the standard you typically use. So if you use the ISO standard with millimeter units, you'll setup your template using these settings. The standard used in the course is ANSI using both inches and millimeters. So it doesn't matter which standard you use and you can use inches or millimeters.

Once you've setup your part template you'll begin working with sketches and simple feature commands. Sketches are used to create closed profiles that feature commands use to make features. So a sketch can contain a circle, for example, and a feature command can extrude the circle into a cylinder.

While this sounds pretty basic, the Professional Modeling course takes your skills from this level to an extremely advanced level. As you gain more knowledge about the commands and the details about how they work you'll learn which commands to use in special circumstances.

For example, let's say you need to create a linear pattern of holes in your model. You can use the 2D Linear Pattern sketch command or the 3D Linear Pattern feature command. Both commands will create the same hole pattern, but which one should you use? Questions like this are answered throughout the course.

So the course takes your skills far beyond the commands.
