Solid Edge training delivers the knowledge and skills to use Solid Edge, a 3D CAD software, for solid modeling, assembly modeling along with drafting and designing. Participants learn all from concept to completion including benefits of ordered and synchronous commands. Sheet metal designing is also covered to teach design and change production level parts and assemblies.

On the completion of the training, the students will be able to:

  • Handle interface, file management, and design workflow
  • Use dimension and annotation tools
  • Construct the models using pre-synchronous tools
  • Develop fully synchronous models and assemblies
  • Work on production level sheet metal design
  • Efficiently use assembly design tools and document all files
  • Differentiate between traditional and synchronous design
  • Implement assembly models and relationship between them
  • Work with Solid Edge Embedded Client
Target audience
  • Mechanical engineers
  • Designers
  • Drafters
Prerequisites
