Requirements
  • Basic knowledge of SolidWorks
Description

In this course, we will learn more about SolidWorks by going through a real world example. We will go through the process of designing a car canopy. We will start with concept design, then we will run Finite element analysis (FEA). Then we will make some modifications to enhance the model. After verifying the model with the analysis. we will start creating the actual detailed model. Then we will create detailed drawing for fabrication and the last thing is that we will export some files for plasma cutting.

Who this course is for:
  • Mechanical engineers. Mechanical engineering students
