Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Cert Prep: SOLIDWORKS Weldments.
- [Instructor] If you're a premium member of the library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. Go ahead and download those files to your desktop. Double click the exercise files folder and you should have something that looks very similar to this. You can see we have it arranged by chapters. We also have a sample exam. The parts created in the sample exam. As well as some templates that I've predefined for you. If you open up each individual folder, say chapter two. In this case here, I'm going to open up 2.2. We have the starting version of the file as well as the finished version of the file which ends in a underscore FIN.
Now pretty much every one of the movies has corresponding files in the same format. If you look over here at the templates folder I've given you a couple preformatted templates that are used throughout the exam. The 1020 steel, as well as 1060 aluminum are two of the most common materials that you'll see in the exams. And they're preformatted with the right unit system as well as some predefined equations in there. And then below that, I've given you a basic LinkedIn assembly template, drawing template, as well as the part template. You're free to use those, and modify them as you'd like.
If you're a monthly member, or annual member of the library, you don't have the access to these exercise files. However, you can follow them from scratch, or create your own assets. Now let's get started.
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.
