SolidWorks Part Modeling teaches you how to use multibody solids, sweeping and lofting features, and the more advanced shaping capabilites of SolidWorks.

Course details and prerequisites:

Duration: 2 Days
Type: Instructor Led
Level: Intermediate


  • Mechanical or Industrial design experience
  • Attended the SolidWorks Essentials or equivalent level of knowledge
After the training you will be able to:
  • Create complex freeform parts assocated with the consumer product design
  • Create multibody parts and split them to create assemblies
  • Use advanced features to generate custom solid model part designs
