SOLIDWORKS Motion Course
Designed for users who would like to become productive quickly in using SOLIDWORKS Motion. This 1 day course will teach you how to use the SOLIDWORKS Motion simulation package to study the kinematics and dynamic behavior of your SOLIDWORKS assembly models.
Prerequisites: Knowledge of SOLIDWORKS is required. Knowledge of basic mechanical engineering concepts is recommended.
Who should attend: This course has been designed for new SOLIDWORKS Motion users who would like to learn to perform motion analysis on their designs. The course provides an in-depth session on the basics of building, simulating and refining a mechanical design system.
Length: 1 day
Time: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
