Workshops Training: Advance1 SOLIDWORKS

  • Wednesday, September 27, 2017
    Time : 12:00 PM - 02:00 PM
    Location : KAUST Library computer room Building 12, room 3134

    SOLIDWORKS is a solid modeling computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) computer program that runs on Microsoft Windows.

    Please note that this event is in two parts – on September 27 and October 3, 2017 and each session will be held from 12pm to 2pm.

    First Session: September 27

    The first session of Advance1 module will be aimed at developing sketching and modeling techniques to advice on a plan for component/part design with a view to future changes where applicable. There are several ways to model a component but one must plan with changes in mind. The module will then focus on the use of some of the advanced modeling tools in SOLIDWORKS. Participants will practice by using some of these tools including the wrap tool, lofting, the sweep tool, the shell and the helix tool (for threads & springs).

    Second Session: October 3

    The second session of Advance1 will focus on assembly techniques including using tools such as fasteners, welding tools etc. This module will also focus on the creation of drawings from models, 3rd-angle, 1st-angle and dimensioning techniques. Also practiced will be the use of inserting ‘Bill of Materials’ Tables and Ballooning assemblies etc.

    You’re invited

    This course is divided into two modules: Advance1 and Advance2 with two sessions each. There is continuity between the two modules, so for attending the Advance2 module, you must have already attended Advance1.

    There is limited capacity for this training. Contact ronan.carolan@kaust.edu.sa for more details and registration.
