ENGC1255 SolidWorks II

This course is designed to give additional hands-on experience using SolidWorks three-dimensional Parametric CAD software. The students will use the software to create advanced features such as mutlibody solids, sweeps, lofts, and fillets. Additionally, the students will model sheet metal parts, convert solid parts into sheet metal parts, and model sheet metal in context of an assembly. Other topics that may be introduced at the teacher's discretion include file management, customizing the SolidWorks interface, PhotoWorks, Mold Tools, weldments, and surface modeling.
