The goal of this course is to teach you how to use the SolidWorks mechanical design automation software to convert 2D legacy AutoCAD data and build parametric models of parts. This course is designed around a process or task-based approach to training. Rather than focus on individual features and functions, a process-based training course emphasizes the processes and procedures you follow to complete a particular task.

Course details and prerequisites:

Duration: 2 Days
Type: Instructor Led
Level: Basic


  • Mechanical or Industrial design experience
  • Attended the SolidWorks Essentials or equivalent level of knowledge
After the training you will be able to:
  • Create 3D models from your AutoCAD legacy data
  • Edit your AutoCAD legacy data in the DWGeditor without the need for AutoCAD
  • Insert an AutoCAD drawing into a SolidWorks drawing for manipulation and reuse of AutoCAD blocks
