This course is perfect for those who have a very basic grounding in Solid Edge but are now ready to learn some of the intricacies of such a powerful program.
We start with a basic modelling and assembly exercise.
Together we'll build a pedestal, a stand for a plant pot. Creating the parts and putting them together. We’ll colour it too!
I’ll show you exactly what to do, where to click and what your options are at each stage. There are short tests to help you think a little deeper about the topics covered.
As time passes, more lectures will be added and you'll be first to know.
Additional training will include, sheet-metal, framing, surfacing, drawings etc.
At the end of the course you'll be ready to design your own items which you can send for manufacture or even 3D print for yourself at home!
I help mechanical engineers, designers and draftspersons design better products more efficiently thereby improving their profits by providing first class training, coaching and mentoring. By working with me, my clients maximise their investment in their engineering staff, systems and software.
I am a certified Solid Edge Professional and holder of a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (Australia)
Over the years I've worked for many diverse engineering businesses, all the time learning new methods systems and skills. I began my working life joining the British Royal Navy where I undertook a four-year marine engineering apprenticeship specialising as a fitter & turner. After a few years or service at sea I went on to university where I studied yacht and powercraft design. This was when I started learning CAD. My first job after Uni was at an electrical switchboard manufacturer as a draftsman. From there on a had various mechanical and electrical jobs until I got to a solar power equipment design & manufacturing company where I was trained and started to use Solid Edge. Fast forward a few more years and I'm now working as a freelance 3D CAD modeller and 3D CAD trainer. I have taught more than 50 users face to face and helped many more over the phone and via screen sharing software.
I really enjoy helping out my fellow engineers and get a lot of satisfaction when I see what they are able to achieve with the software.
