"Overall the lessons were laid out well, easy to follow, and well taught. Mechanical Drawings had a fair bit of useful information on setting up drawings and templates. It was also helpful to learning how Solidworks approaches Sheet Metal Design. Coming from an Inventor background it helped translate to the new functionality. The FEA course was a good refresher on using the FEA. Helps understand the basic functionality of the Solidworks FEA software."

Is it more important to learn how SolidWorks commands work than to learn how SolidWorks is used professionally? This is like asking if knowing the alphabet means you can read. You have to understand the functional use of SolidWorks to be productive with the software.
This doesn't mean our SolidWorks training courses are overly complicated. It just means we show you everything you need in detail. It's a little like teaching you the alphabet, how words are constructed, how sentences are constructed, etc. You learn effective methods of using SolidWorks in and easy to follow format.
We know your profession is important. We also know your SolidWorks training is just as important. SolidWorks is the tool that helps you get your work done. So you can't afford to waist time using trial and error methods to learn SolidWorks. You need simple training that shows you all the steps. That's what our SolidWorks training courses do.
Learn to go beyond the commands. You can be learning in less than 10 minutes.

The SolidWorks 2020: Professional Modeling course gives you a strong foundation of skills that can be used in subsequent courses. You'll practice using SOLIDWORKS while you watch how it's done.
Each step of the way you'll learn structured procedures that insure your models are professionally built. By learning best practices and professional modeling processes your models will be easy to edit. They'll be structurally sound, and you'll learn to build them in the fastest time possible.
Not only will you learn best practices, you'll learn them in the shortest time possible. Many users waist time trying to figure out how to use SOLIDWORKS on their own, but watching how it's done correctly is much faster. It prevents bad habits or ineffective methods from being used, and you build a clearer understanding of how to effectively use the commands. Effective workflow strategy is the real goal in the professional use of SOLIDWORKS. The Professional Modeling course is the fastest way to get started.
Why do we talk about sound processes and procedures so much? Many users think it's normal to try to build a model. Scrap it, and then try to build it again. It might take several iterations to get the model finished, and if you ever need to modify it you may need to reconstruct it again. This is not how you should work.
By using sound procedures and best practices you can construct models that never need to be reconstructed. They will be editable. So you will be able to make changes long after the product has been released. This means the model becomes your greatest asset. This also improves your throughput, reduces cost, less headaches, … the list goes on.
The Professional Modeling course has 7 hours of video instruction. If you use the course 8 hours a day it will take about 3 days on average to complete. When you're finished you will have a strong foundation of skills that is required for subsequent courses.Advanced Parts & Assemblies
The SolidWorks 2020: Advanced Parts & Assemblies course shows you how to unlock the power of custom configurations, using equations to create features, how to work with design tables, how to create part generators and much much more. This course is packed with tips and tricks that will make your models and assemblies bulletproof.
So the title of the course describes what you'll learn. You'll learn advanced methods of creating single part models, and you'll learn basic through advanced methods of creating and working with assemblies. You'll also learn that you can merge the two concepts together by creating assemblies from single part models. In fact, this is called solid body modeling or top down design. There are too many facets of this concept to discuss here, but you can be assured to learn all about it in the course.
The SOLIDWORKS 2020: Advanced Parts & Assemblies course has over 7.9 hours of video instruction. If you study the course 8 hours a day, the average time it takes to watch the lessons and practice the tasks is about 3 days. When you're finished you'll have an extremely strong foundation of skills that are required for subsequent courses.Mechanical Drawings
The SolidWorks 2020: Mechanical Drawings course shows you how to customize your 2D drawing tasks. You'll learn how to create title blocks that automatically populate with all the information from the model. Custom borders, tables, and BOMs are covered in detail as well as how to control the look of these features with layers and other settings. Every element on mechanical drawings will be in your control by the time you finish this course.
You'll learn how to use all the drawing commands, but the powerhouse of this course is the time you'll save with automated drawing construction. Drawings will be formatted to your specifications without any additional work. Simply add your views and dimensions, and the drawing will be complete. Review tables and notes can be added with a few clicks, and your drawings will look professionally constructed.
The SOLIDWORKS 2020: Mechanical Drawings course has over 4.1 hours of video instruction. If you study the course 8 hours a day, the average time it takes to watch the lessons and practice the tasks is about 3 days.Sheet Metal Design
The SolidWorks 2020: Sheet Metal Design course is designed to help you streamline your work while improving your accuracy. The key in doing this is to understand the settings that control how sheet metal models are constructed and how flat patterns are produced. Once you understand this you can setup templates that speed the process. This course shows you how it's done.
Not only will you learn how to use all the sheet metal commands and how to leverage their use, you'll learn advanced methods of creating sheet metal assemblies. You'll learn how top down and bottom up sheet metal assemblies are constructed, and you'll practice tips and tricks that will speed the process.
Need to make 2D drawings of your sheet metal parts? You might also be interested in learning how to export DXF files for numeric control. This course shows you how it's done. It's packed with tips and tricks covering all your sheet metal needs.
The SOLIDWORKS 2020: Sheet Metal Design course has over 4.0 hours of video instruction. If you study 8 hours a day, the average time it take to watch the lessons and practice the tasks is 3 days.FEA Made Simple
The SolidWorks 2020: FEA Made Simple course is an advanced course designed to help both beginner and advanced users unlock the power of the FEA module. We recommend that you watch the first 4 courses in the series before watching this course.
It shows both beginner and advanced users how to simplify your work to leverage the power of the software. Simple math is used to confirm the accuracy of your study results. All the components and options of FEA are described in detail so that you know how to take control. Each step of the way you'll learn practical methods of creating accurate FEA studies.
If you're not confident about using the FEA module you will not use it. This is why the FEA Made Simple course simplifies and breaks down complex concepts into simple to understand steps. When you take these steps and then compare your results to the study results, you'll begin to build confidence.
While there's a little more to it than predicting study results, this course covers everything you'll need. Notch sensitivity and how to deal with it, material selection, mesh element types, the list goes on. Each component is described in detail so that you will clearly understand everything you need to know make accurate studies and predict real world results.
The SOLIDWORKS 2020: FEA Made Simple course has over 4.3 hours of video instruction. If you study 8 hours a day, the average time it takes to watch the lessons and practice the tasks is 3 days.
