Learn to study kinematics and dynamic behavior of your SOLIDWORKS assembly models


  • CLASSROOM LENGTH: 2 days; 8:30am to 4:30pm

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.

DESCRIPTION: Designed for users who would like to become productive quickly in using SOLIDWORKS Motion. This course will teach you how to use the SOLIDWORKS Motion simulation package to study the kinematics and dynamic behavior of your SOLIDWORKS assembly models.
