“Very effective!! I am a professional engineer who's been working on Autodesk Inventor since 2000. Due to industry requirements I was forced to change to Solid Works, but as you can imagine it was quite a daunting decision to stop using Inventor which I've been using for so many years and moving to Solidworks. What made the challenge even greater was that I had to do this switch over without affecting any of my current projects. TEDCF Publishing course was my saving grace. An easy to follow course that is very well compiled and covers all of the critical aspects of professional modeling. I would most definitely recommend for anyone, even seasoned professionals!!”

How do we know we can teach you effective skills? Our sister company is The Engineering Department Consulting Firm. This is where TEDCF Publishing was born. We do the same work you do. We design and develop products and we pass these skills onto you. We know what to do to be productive and we know what will and won’t work. When you finish our courses, you will too.

3D-CAD can significantly increase your productivity, but you need to know the details about how the commands work and how best to use them. We take this one step further by showing you how to work effectively.

Our courses strike at the heart of this problem by progressively building a strong foundation of skills, and then we build on top of that foundation. Ultimately, we show you how to maximize your productivity and the quality of your work.

SOLIDWORKS Training Beyond the Commands!

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

The core purpose of 3D-CAD is to increase your productivity. You need to know how the commands work, but more importantly you need to know effective ways of getting your work done.

For example, you need to constrain your assemblies in a specific way to assure that they function correctly. You also need to construct your models using sound procedures that allow you to edit them later. These concepts just touch the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what you need to know to be effective.

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.
