Description

This course is an introduction to SolidWorks. It will take you from the very beginning of opening SolidWorks and teach you the entire designing workflow within SolidWorks. In this project based course, you will be learning how make 3D models, 2D engineering drawing, assembly, animation, and high-quality render of a check valve in SolidWorks.

My name is Azeez Salu, and I will be your instructor for this course. I am a skilled and motivated professional with 7 years’ experience operating computer aided drafting and design software (CAD). I specialize in engineering part design (3D), 2d drawings, animation, and photo view rendering using SolidWorks and AutoCAD. I am confident that this course will help you develop your designing skills in SolidWorks.

I will also be available at any time to answer any questions as well as help you with any issues you may come across while making your way through this course.

Even if you don’t have SolidWorks you can still take advantage of this course by downloading a student version from Dassault Systemes’ website.

Thank you and I hope to see you inside!

The Command Manager is a context-sensitive toolbar that dynamically updates based on the toolbar you want to access. By default, it has toolbars embedded in it based on the document type.

When you click a tab below the Command Manager, it updates to show that toolbar. For example, if you click the Sketches tab, the Sketch toolbar appears.

Command Manager Tabs

The FeatureManager design tree makes many selection and filtering operations simple, and provides access to many folders and tools useful when working with models.

The FeatureManager design tree and the graphics area are dynamically linked. You can select features, sketches, drawing views, and construction geometry in either pane.

You can split the FeatureManager design tree and either display two FeatureManager instances, or combine the FeatureManager design tree with the ConfigurationManager or PropertyManager.

To toggle visibility of the FeatureManager design tree area, press F9 or click View > User Interface > FeatureManager Tree Area, which is especially useful when in full screen mode.

CAD Designer/Draftsman

I am a design and drafting professional with 7 years of experience operating Computer Aided Drafting and Design Software (CAD). I specialize in engineering part design, drawings, and photo view rendering using SolidWorks and AutoCAD. I am proficient in reverse engineering, calculations of tolerances for parts and assemblies, problem-solving through research, and preparation of mechanical, civil, and electrical drawings from engineering notes and sketches.

In addition to my full-time job, I work part-time as a consultant, offering 2D drawings, 3D models, and photo-realistic renderings.

I enjoy making new contacts in the industry, so feel free to reach out if you have questions or comments about what I do!
