Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Certification exam software settings, part of Cert Prep: SOLIDWORKS Weldments.
- When you're taking the SolidWorks certification exams,…you're going to be creating a bunch of parts.…And most of the parts are going to…have a few things in common.…And I've pre-established some templates…that have all the defaults already set up for you,…which will save you a lot of time.…Go up here to click on New.…And notice here in the default folder for templates…I have the LinkedIn Part, Assembly and Drawing,…and these are available in the exercise file folder.…Also, over here on the left, I have this 1020 steel,…in the millimeter-gram-second unit system,…as well as this 1060 aluminum,…also in millimeter-gram-second.…
If you click on Open, or OK,…it's going to open a new part,…using that default template.…Now over here on the left-hand side,…you can see I already have 1060 aluminum pre-selected.…If that doesn't happen to be…the material you need to use,…make sure you do update it over there,…before you go forward with your part.…Because obviously you're going to get the wrong values,…if you don't have the right material.…
Join Gabriel Corbett as he reviews the exam requirements, along with testing techniques and tips to make more effective use of your time. He refreshes your knowledge of fundamentals such as creating and saving weldment profiles, building sketches, trimming and extending weldments, applying corner treatments, and creating end caps and gussets. He also covers advanced weldment creation, profile alignment, and weldment cut lists. Last, but not least, he reviews questions from a sample exam and provides pointers for measuring parts correctly and verifying the unit system.
