solidworks simulation training course

SOLIDWORKS Motion Course

Prerequisites: SOLIDWORKS Essentials or Certified SOLIDWORKS Associate (CSWA) and basic mechanical engineering concepts

Description: This course will teach you how to use the SOLIDWORKS Motion Simulation package to study the kinematics and dynamic behavior of SOLIDWORKS assembly models. This course provides an in-depth session on the  basics of building, simulating, and refining a mechanical design system, from suspension steering system and drive shafts to backhoes, CAMS, gears, and actuators.
