Prepare for the Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional Advanced Weldments (CSWPA-WD) exam, and master weldment techniques to design complex welded and bolted structures.
- [Gabriel] Hi, I'm Gabriel Corbett, and welcome to the Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional Advanced Weldments exam preparation course. In this course, we'll go over all the requirements for the exam, testing techniques, pointers, and effective use of time. In preparation to teach this course, I took the latest exams to make sure all the course information was relevant and focused on you passing the exam. We'll start with a skills review chapter to refresh your knowledge and give you key insights into the type of questions that you'll see on the exam.
I've built sample parts that will mimic the real-world exam and focus the discussion on relevant topics to help you pass the exam. We'll cover creating weldment profiles, saving weldment profiles, three sketches, basic and advanced weldment creation, profile alignment, corner treatments, and weld gaps. We'll cover trimming and extending weldments, creating end caps, gussets, and so much more. Then we'll dive into weldment cut lists and creating cut lists on drawings.
As a bonus, I'm including some pre-formatted templates that will get you up to speed fast and save you time on the exam. Finally, we'll cover all the questions on the sample exam and go over a step-by-step process to answer each question, along with tips for measuring the parts correctly and verifying the unit system. Now let's get started with the Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional Advanced Weldments exam preparation course.
Join Gabriel Corbett as he reviews the exam requirements, along with testing techniques and tips to make more effective use of your time.
