As discussed on Tuesday I’m teaching the first CAD class for beginners this Saturday (the 15th). It will be from Noon to 3PM, so please eat lunch (breakfast) before you come.
That being said I want to keep this to 3 slots and see how it goes. My hope is that everyone gets hands on time, and as we’re limited to one computer, any more and that won’t be possible. If you will definitely be coming please say so below and I will confirm the first 3 people to be accepted.
What to bring:
1 relatively simple object. The first picture is a good example. It’s simple, has basic features, and will be able to be completed in our class’s timeframe. The second picture is a bad example. It’s too curvy and would be a better example for an intermediate class. The more organic it is (ie the fewer flat, sharp, or cylindrical surfaces it has) the harder it will be!
What we’re covering:
1- Navigation in solidworks
2- Basic workflow and setting up planes
3- Considerations for which which features to start with
4- Sketches and dimensioning
5- The most common and readily useful features/tools
6- Saving and naming for Assemblies
7- Assemblies and their potential benefits/downfalls
I’m looking forward to it, and I hope you guys enjoy it!
