Description
  • Last update : 17/01/2017.
  • High quality lectures.
  • All lectures available for download.

Learn how to use SOLIDWORKS Sketch - Blocks in your designs to create initial layout of the design motion before going into detailed 3D design phase.
Master 2D Animations & Motion Analysis in SOLIDWORKS.

Why would you take this course ?

  • Learn unique skills in SOLIDWORKS and implement them to make your designs more professional.
  • Learn how to use the simple 2D dynamics tools to iterate the design before the detailed 3D design phase.
  • Save both time and efforts by making simple layouts for your complex designs.


Course topics overview 

Queries on the leading employment websites for the top 100 U.S metropolitan areas reveal that of the 89,120 job openings seeking CAD skills, 32% request SOLIDWORKS users (August 2015). This reveals how many more U.S. companies are using SOLIDWORKS. So when you consider learning SOLIDWORKS you are increasing your job chances as a CAD designer .

In this course you will be learning how to use SOLIDWORKS 2D Animation & Motion Analysis tools to create initial layouts for your designs; so you can modify and optimize them before the detailed 3D design

I’m not only explaining the 2D dynamics tools in SOLIDWORKS and leave you deal with them, but there are so many Exercises, 7 Quizzes and 4 Complete Projects explained step by step in the last section so that I can make sure that you will get the maximum benefits out of this course. 

Complete the course lectures, examples, quizzes and the 4 projects from real life applications and you will be able to Distinguish your self as Cad designer who had learnt unique skills in the industry leading CAD software.

Who is the target audience?
  • The ideal student for this course is a CAD designer who wants to learn solidworks 2D animation & motion analysis through real applications so he can implement these tools in his projects.
