Create a swept flange using profile and path sketches. Create profile and path sketches for a swept flange. Use the Swept Flange feature to create a swept flange. Define sheet metal parameters within the Swept Flange tab.
Create face fillets to modify and repair imported geometry. Define the size and shape of the fillet using selected faces and edges instead of a constant radius value. Use options such as Curvature continuous, Constant width, Tangent propagation, and Hold lines to define the face fillet. Modify imported geometry using a face fillet. Ensure curvature continuity with faces adjacent to the fillet. Set a constant chord length of a fillet. Define a stopping edge, or hold line, for a face fillet.
Use surface tools to create complex blends at the intersections of surfaces. The tools used in this module include trim surfaces, lofted surfaces, and fill surfaces. Trim surfaces using a sketch as the trim entity. Create a blend between surfaces using a lofted surface. Fill an area that is completely bounded by surfaces using the fill surface tool.
Use the ConfigurationManager to add configurations to an assembly and show two versions of its components. Also, explore the advanced options of configuration properties. Use the ConfigurationManager to add configurations to an assembly. Use the advanced options of the configuration properties to control new components and mates. Create two versions of the assembly to represent different available components.
Use the ConfigurationManager to add configurations and modify the part by controlling the suppression state of features and by configuring dimensions. Use the ConfigurationManager to add configurations to a part. Suppress features to represent a different version of the model. Configure dimensions to create different size versions of the part.
Create 2D or 3D curves defined by mathematical equations. The curve can be explicit where y is a function of x, or parametric where x, y, and z are functions of t. Create a 3D spline using a parametric mathematical equation. Create a sweep feature using one 3D spline as the path and another as the guide curve.
Add new non-graphic properties to fully describe a SOLIDWORKS part, assembly, or drawing. Add Custom Properties using user-defined text and SOLIDWORKS special properties. Understand the downstream uses of properties in drawing annotations and tables. Use properties to select assembly components.
Learn to use a grid system, which is a type reference geometry, to represent a skeleton of structural members. Create a grid system to represent the center lines of structural members.
Search for, manage and view exisiting reports created by SolidWorks Utilities. Export reports to a briefcase or delete reports. Search for, manage, and view SolidWorks Utilities reports. Export and delete reports.
Copy instances of one or more features or bodies by mirroring them across a reference plane or planar face. The resultant copy is reversed, as if seen in a mirror, maintaining symmetry. Create mirror patterns of features and bodies. Control results with geometry pattern option.
An introduction to the many types view manipulation for parts, assemblies, and drawings. Explore the different types of views. Understand how to manipulate views using menus, the keyboard, mouse, and reference triad.
Add a jog to an existing flange. A jog adds material to a sheet metal part by creating two bends and a flat from a sketch line. The mirror feature adds symmetry in sheet metal designs. Add a jog to an existing flange. Incorporate symmetry in sheet metal designs. Position a jog.
Use Modify Configurations options to create and manage configurations in user-defined tables. Configure sketch and feature dimensions with Configure Dimension. Use Configure Feature to configure suppression of features. Configure the part material with Configure Materials. And, use Configure Component to configure the component suppression, fixed state, and configuration.
Utilize functions of the Costing Task Pane and CostingManager tab to analyze the cost of manufacturing a sheet metal part. Use the Costing Task Pane to evaluate materials costs. Learn how to customize material options for material and blank size. Use the Costing Manager to evaluate manufacturing costs. Learn how to customize cost values for manufacturing. Understand the values displayed in the Estimated Cost Per Part. Generate a cost analysis report.
Add draft to cast and molded parts. Understand the various types of draft features you can create. Perform Draft Analysis to determine which faces need draft added to them.
Use the Split Route tool to add junction points to existing routes. Create geometry at the J-point to orient an in-line fitting. Use the Split Route tool to add a junction point to an existing route. Create 3D geometry at a junction point. Use 3D geometry to orient an in-line fitting.
Create a cut list to organize the bodies in a weldment part. Add custom properties to the components of a weldment structure so the propertie appear in the cut list. Similar to a BOM in an assembly, the cut list provides details of the weldment members. Create and edit a cut list. Edit custom properties. Edit the material of the bodies in a weldment part.
Determine if proper draft exists in a part to be molded. Without proper draft, the part may fail to successfully eject from the mold. Evaluate draft on a molded part. Examine the different classes of drafted faces.
When edges of a part are too close to allow for fillets to be created properly, often making use of separate solid bodies can help. Separate features into separate solid bodies. Apply fillets to the individual bodies. Use the Combine command to add the bodies back together. Apply an additional fillet to the part to complete the model.
Create and modify splines using spline points, relations, control polygons, and spline handles. Splines can have multiple spline points or as few as two spline points. Sketch with splines. Edit the number of spline points. Modify the shape of splines with relations, control polygons, and spline handles.
Insert driving dimensions into a sketch using the versatile Smart Dimension tool. With a single tool, you can create radial dimensions for arc, linear dimensions between two points, and more. The dimension that appears depends on the entities you select. Insert linear, angular, radial, and other dimensions. Modify dimensions. Move and reattach dimensions.
The Hole Wizard feature creates standard-sized holes according to ANSI, ISO, and other international standards. Hole type, size, and placement location are input by the user. Create hole wizard holes. Learn the elements and options of a wizard hole. Create multiple holes in the same feature.
Use the Interference Detection tool to identify any overlap between parts in an assembly. Clearance between parts can also be detected using the Clearance Verification tool. Use the Interference Detection tool to identify interferences between assembly components. Explore the options available within the Interference Detection tool. Use the Clearance Verification tool to identify clearances between assembly components. Explore the options available with the Clearance Verification tool.
Learn about the Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional Advanced Surfacing exam. Understand some of the SOLIDWORKS skills you need to achieve certification. Review some of the questions from the sample exam.
