Description

SOLIDWORKS is a very productive 3D CAD software tool. It helps to design various products and services, testing them in very cost effective way like Model and prototype testing as you learned earlier in engineering degree class.

The Solidworks have wide range of applications in industries such as

  • Aerospace

  • Defense

  • Automotive

  • Transportation

  • Machinery

  • Heavy Equipment

  • Consumer products

  • Mold & Tools design

  • Electronics

  • Sheet metal work

  • Process Plant

  • Energy conservation

  • Construction

  • Medical tools

  • Product design and other engineering services.

This course will help you in understanding and learning the basic and advanced tools of the software. You will get a thorough knowledge and hands on experience on Sketch, Part, Assembly and Surface Environments of SOLIDWORKS.
