SOLIDWORKS: Consumer Product Surfacing Design Techniques

This course will take you step-by-step through the process of modeling a car in SOLIDWORKS. This is usually an extremely advanced technique but it will be broken down to the basics so you'll have the confidence to model anything! Software required: SOLIDWORKS.

Description

SOLIDWORKS has been a leader in the CAD industry since it was introduced over 20 years ago. In this course, SOLIDWORKS: Consumer Product Surfacing Design Techniques, you'll learn a bit about complex surfacing in SOLIDWORKS. This course will start with a sample file containing various parts of a car already complete. First, you'll start with the wheels in place, the glass modeled, and will be walked through the process of making a fender. Next, once your fender is complete, you'll then jump over to a more complete car file and begin work on the front bumper. Breaking the car down into several smaller areas will allow you an opportunity to focus on the detail features needed to undertake a project like this without the daunting task of completing the entire model. Finally, you'll take a look at one last file and use some surface and solid tools to put on the final touches. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid foundation with SOLIDWORKS in general. Software required: SOLIDWORKS.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name's Matt Perez, and welcome to my course, SOLIDWORKS complex shapes. I'm an applications expert at SolidBox, providing CAD consulting and training across the country. SOLIDWORKS has been a leader in the CAD industry since it was introduced over 20 years ago. In this course, we're going to learn a bit about complex surfacing in SOLIDWORKS. Some of the major topics that we'll cover are 2D spline control, 3D projected curves, complex surfaces, and renders and visualization. By the end of this course you'll have a solid foundation with SOLIDWORKS complex shapes, and be on your way to designing your own products. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with SOLIDWORKS in general, but it's laid out so the topics are arranged from easy to more difficult, so anyone can follow along. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn SOLIDWORKS with the SOLIDWORKS complex shapes course, at Pluralsight.
