SolidWorks Motion Course
Designed for users who would like to become productive quickly in using SolidWorks Motion. This 2 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 and the basics of the MotionManager is required. If you are not familiar with the basics of the MotionManager, the class manager will send you a self-paced lesson that should be completed before class begins. 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.
