SolidWorks 3D CAD Design software offers three packages building in functionality and tiered to best suit the needs of your organization. All packages utilize the intuitive SolidWorks user interface to speed your design process and make you instantly productive.

Introduction to SolidWorks

(5 days)

This is a course to teach the basic fundamentals of using SolidWorks. The course is run over 2 weeks; 2 days the first week, 3 days the second week. Basic solid modeling concepts are covered in the first week. The second week covers 2D drawings, assemblies, Sheet Metal, and advanced modeling techniques. File management, user resources, and exporting information are also covered.

Advanced SolidWorks Topics

(2 days)

This course teaches complex solid and surface modeling techniques. It is a two day class designed to help users who routinely create intricate models. Surfaces, multi bodies, and specialized features not covered in the Introduction to SolidWorks course are covered in detail in this class.

(1 day)

This course teaches users how to make better and more efficient SolidWorks assemblies faster. Using mating tools to quickly put together a model and how to design for complex motion. Assembly configurations and large assembly management help you navigate assemblies more quickly and efficiently.

(1 day)

This course covers creating detailed technical drawings using SolidWorks. Import and set up of a title block and template. Preparing a model for easier annotating, using DimXpert and Auto-dimension tools are shown. Complex assembly motion, tabulated drawings, and creating hole charts are also covered.

(1 day)

This course covers sheet metal design and detailing. Learn how to create forming tools from scratch. Create a detailed 2D drawing showing flat and bent states. How to import and export sheet metal files. Also covered is modeling sheet metal within an assembly and multi body sheet metal files.

(1 day)

This course teaches how to use the Routing component included in SolidWorks Premium to create electrical wires, cables, and wire harnesses. Creating libraries of connectors, wires, and clips is covered. Also how to create peg-board layouts and detailed drawings of harnesses complete with wire cut lengths and a schedule of all connectors, and pin connections is demonstrated.

(1 day)

This course teaches several mold making techniques, using automatic and manual processes to develop cavity and core components. Using analysis tools to develop optimal parting lines, while checking for draft and undercuts in your geometry. How to import and repair information coming from other 3D platforms. Also covered is creating complex multi-core molds with multiple parting directions.

(1 day)

This course teaches how to use the Routing component included in SolidWorks Premium to create pipes, as well as rigid and flexible tubing. Learn how to use libraries of flanges, tees, valves and reducers to flesh out a fluid route. Also covered is making detailed drawings with a list of components needed to run a route.

(1 day)

This course covers how to quickly create welded structures out of extruded members and plate components. Automatically generating cut lists and creating plan views of items. Weld beads, gussets and end caps are also covered. We also show how to work with structural pipes and tubes to create a weldment.

(1 day)

This course is specialized for users that only need to import geometry from other 3D platforms and then produce detailed drawings from them. Auto-Dimension and DimXpert tools are covered in depth.

(1/2 day)

This is a course to teach the basic fundamentals of using the CircuitWorks add-in included with SolidWorks Premium. This allows ECAD systems and SolidWorks to communicate through this translator. PADs and IDF files can be converted to 3D models to allow mechanical engineers to incorporate PCB boards and components into their SolidWorks designs.

(2 days)

The API Fundamentals course is designed to familiarize users with SolidWorks’ API (Application Programming Interface). The API can be use to customize and automate tasks in SolidWorks. It can also be use to integrate SolidWorks with other programs such as MRP/ERP systems and CAM systems. Understanding and utilizing the API can greatly enhance your SolidWorks experience, and save you time and money.

Solidworks Professional | Solidworks 3D Design software

I have yet to find a VAR that can compete with them in service, knowledge of SolidWorks or any other Dassault application. When hired by Intralase, I changed the company from their existing VAR to Hawk Ridge. I have been working with Hawk Ridge Systems for over 15 years. I have yet to be disappointed when dealing with them. I received my initial SolidWorks training from them. Doug Blackburn CAD Administrator Intralase Corp.
