More about this course

The focus of this course is in the preparation of students for Certified Solidworks Associate (CSWA) exam. Course covers all necessary tools and techniques needed for the exam. As well, examples with video tutorials and exercises that students have to complete by themselves. On top of that there is also a Sample Exam, similar to the real one. This Sample Exam is test for the students before they take real exam.

This course on the other hand is as well for absolute beginners who wish to learn basic tools and techniques is sketching, part modeling, assembly and drawing creation. So practically this is 2 in1 Solidworks course where you learn from zero about 3d modeling and prepare yourself for the exam.

Why Solidworks?

Solidworks is the most popular design tool for creating 3D products and technical drawings. Millions of people use it to design anything from 3D-printed toys all the way up to mechanical vehicles, heavy machines and different products of everyday life.

What is Certified Solidworks Associate (CSWA)?

The Certified Solidworks Associate (CSWA) certification indicates a foundation in and apprentice knowledge of a 3D CAD design and engineering practices and principles. Holding a Solidworks Associate certificate in your hand gives industry a proof of your SOLIDWORKS expertise with cutting-edge skills that business seek.  

What this course covers?

1. Sketch tools needed to confidently create various sketches using different tools such as: Mirror, Linear and Circular Sketch Pattern, Line, Rectangle, Elipse, Spline, Offset and Convert Entities and much more.

2. Feature tools needed for creating a 3D part based on previously created sketches by using tools as: Extruded Boss/Cut, Draft, Mirror, Shell, Revolve Boss etc.

3. Basic assembly tools which will allow you to create mechanism combining two or more parts.

4. Basic drawing tools including how to set up a drawing sheet to displaying different drawing views on sheet.
