Solidworks is the most popular design software for the manufacturing industry and comes with a wealth of tools and resources to suit all your needs. Creating 3d parts is a simple process that will be guided through in this introductory class. You will learn how to draw your part in 2d, extrude it out into a 3d shape, cut features and assemble it before exporting in a compatible format for CNC, 3d printing or laser cutting.

We will be using a re-branded version of Solidworks called Camworks Solids which we will all be given free student licenses for.

• navigate the interface

• use the drawing tools

• extrude, revolve and make cuts

• dimension your parts to size

No prior experience is required.
