SolidWorks is the world leader in 3D software for product development and design. Start creating manufacturing-ready parts and assemblies, as well as detailed drawings and bills of materials. In this course, author Gabriel Corbett shows how to create 2D sketches that will become the basis for your 3D models. You'll use the Extrude and Revolve tools to turn 2D sketches into 3D parts, then create more complex geometry with sweep and lofts. Then learn how to use the cut features to remove material and shape parts, and use mirroring, patterning, and scaling to modify parts. Next, you'll combine parts into movable assemblies and subassemblies. Finally, you'll create accurately annotated drawings, complete with itemized bills of materials that relate the final parts and assemblies to a manufacturer.
Thank you for joining me for SolidWorks 2014 essential training. You should now have a solid foundation for working with the software. In addition to the fundamental modelling techniques we learned in this course, SolidWorks also has some nice tools for working with surfaces, sheet metal, weldments, mold tools, as well as rendering. Each of these can be a course in itself, and they are, however most of these same techniques that you already know can be applied to these tools, so play around and see what amazing things you can build. Before I end I want to point out some additional resources.
If you go to the Lynda.com training library, you can see a few of my other courses. I have a course on Sheet Metal Design with SolidWorks, Up and Running with eDrawings, as well as SolidWorks 2012 Essential Training. Also, check back soon for more exciting courses. Also, make sure to check out your local SolidWorks user group. It's a great resource for meeting and collaborating with fellow users. Most groups have excellent speakers giving presentations on all areas of SolidWorks. With that, I'd like to wish you well, and thanks for joining us for SolidWorks 2014 Essential Training.
