SOLIDWORKS Essentials Virtual

The SOLIDWORKS Essentials training uses real-world case studies to illustrate processes, teaching you everything you need to know for creating parametric models of parts and assemblies and creating drawings of those parts and assemblies. New CAD users, seasonal users of other CAD systems, and veteran SOLIDWORKS users can all benefit from the training.
