Advanced Parts & Assemblies


Take Your Skills to a New Level!

The power of configurations, custom part generators, and design tables is just a taste of what you’ll learn from this course. Your training will dive deeper than you might expect, and you’ll find that using sound practices and procedures will make your models and assemblies bulletproof.

You’ll master materials from the start of this course and quickly dive into complex modeling procedures like creating helical threads. Standard threads are just images wrapped around cylindrical features, but you’ll know how to create 3D threads that look like real threads. Use Real View and your parts will look like the finished product. You’ll also learn how to speed your work by reusing sketches.

The speed and accuracy of your work is the focal point of this course. By using the advanced methods shown in this course you will not need to retrace your steps to produce other parts and assemblies. By doing it once you can assure new parts are correct and haven’t been compromised by human error.

So you will have extensive practice creating model configurations, working with Design Tables, and producing part generators that generate other parts from existing and proven models. This course is packed with tips and tricks designed to speed your work and improve the accuracy of your models and assemblies.

You’ll also practice creating weldment assemblies complete with weld beads and frame members. You’ll prepare frames for welding and control frame joints to your specifications.

Need to bolt or screw your parts together? This course shows you how to use the Toolbox to retrieve predefined standard bolts, screws, and nuts for your assemblies. Mate them together and you’ll have complete assemblies in a very short time.

From basic to advanced mates are covered in detail. You’ll practice use all the mate types SOLDIWORKS has to offer, and you’ll know the best way to apply them.

There is no better way to streamline your work and improve your skills. You will see advanced topics being used, and you’ll practice them yourself. You’ll get tips and learn tricks that are based in professional use. You will also see each step and we explain why each step is taken. There is no better way to learn.
