Live, Interactive, SOLIDWORKS Online Training
Learn SOLIDWORKS and create 3D CAD models for engineering, sheet metal design, product design, and other projects. These SOLIDWORKS tutorials cover fundamental and advanced functions of SOLIDWORKS 2012 and beyond, including how to extrude 3D models from 2D drawings, how to apply fillet and chamfer, and more.
Using CAD, SOLIDWORKS users are able to sign up for an account, enroll in courses and track their progress. At the end of each course, students will even receive a certificate of completion!
CAD DIYguru is built for the SOLIDWORKS community which means we will actively update training material based on your feedback! This will probably lead us in the directly of application based training. We want to teach you what you need to get your job done, not teach you what we think will get the job done. Essentially, we want users to be able to take a course and say “that’s exactly what I needed to complete this project”. Other ideas we have is to teach design concepts using SOLIDWORKS. For example, “FEA concepts using SOLIDWORKS Simulation” or “Learn the fundamentals of GD&T with SOLIDWORKS”. Not an engineer or designer by trade? No problem, don’t let that limit your design creativity. In addition, all members (“aka the cadets”) will be able to interact with each and discuss training material by providing feedback on the course page.
SOLIDWORKS TRAINING – ONLINE CLASSROOM
SOLIDWORKS classroom training without the cost in time and expense to attend offsite training. This online training is provided by our parent company Computer Aided Technology (CATI). CATI VC is based on WebEx Online Classroom, the award winning system from Cisco Systems.
Live Instructor – An instructor presents the material live over the web and is constantly available for questions, discussions and mentoring, just as in a standard classroom setting.
No Travel Required – Students can attend the classes from the office or from anywhere with an internet connection and a phone line.
Convenient Schedule – Our classes are scheduled in 1/2 day sessions that allow plenty of time for instruction and exercises. Most classes are held every other day to accommodate busy schedules. The total time for instruction and practice is the same as standard classroom classes.
Full Class Materials – Students will attend the same classes with the same manuals and materials available at our training centers. The materials will be sent prior to the start of class.
Full Lab Exercises – Instruction is followed with practice. The exercises are done utilizing our on-line lab, allowing the instructor to monitor the class and interact to answer questions and provide suggestions in both a group or individual setting.
Time: All Online Classes are based on the Central Time zone.
- The virtual classroom will provide you access to SOLIDWORKS software, so individual SOLIDWORKS licenses are NOT required.
SolidWorks for Formula SAE and Form
ula Student Events
SOLIDWORKS is widely used to design different parts of automobile in the Formula SAE®, Formula Student, Baja SAE®, and Supermileage Challenge competitions.
In these events, university students gain meaningful real-world experience designing, building, testing, and competing with original automotive designs in a team environment.
Successful teams must meet all the challenges of today’s automotive industry: communication, deadlines, budgets, and teamwork. This is why Formula SAE and Formula Student organizations attract the best and brightest. It’s also why future automotive industry innovation takes shape here today. SOLIDWORKS offers each team complete tools and support to help them succeed in their competition.
