More about this course

Practice your SolidWorks 3D CAD skills in a fun way!

Are you a beginner or intermediate SolidWorks user who would like hone your skills? If so then join this course and together we will build a working Lego Helicopter.

During the course we'll create 31 Unique Parts using a wide variety of SolidWorks modelling techniques. We'll then combine these into a complex Assembly and add Mechanical Mates, which will actually allow the Rotor Blades and Tail Rotor to function. Along the way you'll see how an long-term CAD user with over 15 years of SolidWorks experience creates 3D parts and builds assemblies.

About this course

This courses includes:

  • Almost 5 hours of high-quality original video.
  • Downloadable Exercise Files to allow you check your understanding.
  • On-hand support. Have a question? We are always here to support any questions and take a look at your progress.
  • Note: This course is designed for existing SolidWorks users who may be a little rusty and want to get their skills up to speed.
  • Complete beginners are welcome to try the course by following the videos, but you will find it more helpful to take another course aimed specifically at new users.

The course is taught using Solidworks 2021 but the models provided used will work with any version newer than that. If you have a previous version (2015-2020, or earlier) then you can still take the course but minor details might be different and some of the Exercise File functionality may be limited. If you have any questions then please drop me a line!

So sign up today, and lets start creating our Helicopter model!

The course project

Once you have completed the Helicopter please feel free to use this assignment to upload a picture of your model, or to use the Lego Parts to create an entirely new model.
