Learn Onshape for Beginners
What you'll learn
- 3D modelling
- 3D design
- Parametric modelling
- No prior experience needed. You will learn everything you need to know to be confident in using Onshape to create 3D models.
This course is ideal for beginners wanting to learn CAD. Onshape is one of the world’s most popular online CAD packages and is FREE for education and home use. Developed by the founders of Solidworks, Onshape is unique in that it is accessed through a web browser. There is no need to download any software. If you have an interest in designing your own models for 3D printing then this course will teach you the skills to designs models that can be 3D printed.
One of the great benefits of Onsahpe is you can access it through any device e.g. Desktop, Chromebook, Laptop, tablets/ipads and smartphones. Anywhere that you can login to a web browser, you can access Onshape 3D CAD program. Also, all of your files are saved to the cloud.
There are 35 tutorials delivered by Phil Cotton, a High School Technology teacher in the UK, founder of learnbylayers and a certified CAD instructor. The course will build your skills from an absolute beginner, creating basic models to being confident in designing complex models, such as Iphone cases and Arduino cases. Topics covered include;
Sketching 2D profiles
Creating sweeps, revolves and lofts
Designing models including brackets, vases, lampshade, iphones, iphone cases, door signs and Arduino cases.
This course will build your skills in creating 3D designs and will teach you a range of tips and tricks to designing 3D models.
Who this course is for:
- Beginners wanting to learn 3D design
- Hobby users
- University students
- CAD users wanting to learn Onshape
- Design enthusiasts
I have been a high school technology teacher in the UK for over 10 years and have taught thousands of students how to 3D print. I am also an Autodesk Instructor for the UK National STEM Centre and have trained hundreds of teachers and schools on 3D printing in the classroom.
I am also the founder of learnbylayers an online platform that provides curriculum resources for teachers. This is currently used by schools in over 30 countries to 180,000 students.
Creating curriculum content is what I do alongside my teaching role. The courses I have created here are adaptations of the classroom curriculums on learnbylayers. The content has been adapted for a home learning/self-tuition environment and is tried and tested in classrooms around the world.
The main focus of all my courses is 3D printing and how to create models for 3D printing. Either via learning code or CAD design. I am really excited that you are interested in one of my courses and I will keep you in safe hands taking you through the lessons step by step.
