Professional Modeling


Gain a Professional Edge!

The first SolidWorks training course in the series is Professional Modeling. It teaches just what the name implies. You’ll learn practical ways of working with SolidWorks in a professional and structured manner. Specifically, you’ll learn best practice methods of creating bulletproof models.

You’ll learn the basics through an extremely advanced level of skills. So beginner and advanced users should start with this course. It provides founding skills of best practice that are used in subsequent courses.

The Professional Modeling course starts by showing the basics. You’ll learn how to work with sketches, and then you’ll begin working with feature tools like Extrude, Revolve, and Cuts. Once you have these concepts under your belt you begin working with advanced feature tools like linear and circular patterns, sweeps, and lofts. All the while you will compare these commands to similar commands in the 2D sketch environment. The goal at this point is to show you that you can use different commands to create the same features. It also demonstrates that which commands you choose will determine the ease or difficulty of editing the model later.

As you proceed further into the course you’ll learn how to use more advanced commands like the Hole Wizard, Mirroring Features, Mounting Bosses and Ribs. You’ll practice adding draft, using the Boundary command, and many more advanced concepts and commands.

By the time you finish this course you will have a strong understanding of best practices and sound procedures for using SOLIDOWORKS to create professional models.

With over 7.0 hours of video instruction, the Professional Modeling course is all you need to build a strong platform of skills. You’ll also use these SolidWorks skills in subsequent courses.
