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.

Length: 2 days

Time: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
