Course description

Introduction to SolidWorks - 3-day training course in 3D modelling for beginnersSolidWorks Essentials 3-day Course

This 3-day SolidWorks course provides a complete overview of the SolidWorks software, teaching participants the basic principles of 3D part and assembly modelling. At the end of the course delegates will be able to use SolidWorks to build parametric models of parts and assemblies, as well as making drawings of those parts and assemblies

SolidWorks training is hosted by highly-experienced instructors from an engineering background.

If you’re about to start working in an environment where SolidWorks is already configured appropriately and templates are in place, we offer a condensed two-day course that omits the configuration and template sessions included in this course (Introduction to SolidWorks - Essentials only).

Suitability - Who should attend?

This Introduction to SolidWorks course is suitable for new users of SolidWorks and users familiar with a different 3D modelling tool who are looking to migrate to SolidWorks.


Delegates should have a good working knowledge of Windows. No prior CAD knowledge is necessary. Some past mechanical design experience is useful but not essential.
