Solidworks is a 3-D CAD program that can be used to design and create blueprints and 3-D models of objects that engineers want to build. It is used in a number of industries. Certificate and associate degree programs offer Solidworks courses, and students can find stand-alone courses as well. These courses allow students to gain experience with Solidworks software and create their own designs.
Here are some common concepts discussed in Solidworks classes:
- Product design
- Design software
- Putting product parts together
- Creating and editing drafts of drawings
- Precision 3D modeling
