The SolidWorks Routing course explains how to create, edit and manage Piping, Tubing and Electrical routes, from the critical routing components and their design requirements to the sub-assemblies that contain the routes.

Course details and prerequisites:

Duration: 2 Days
Type: Instructor Led
Level: Intermediate


  • Mechanical or Industrial design experience
