2 day training course, $1,500

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.

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.

Recommended Prerequisites:
- Attended SOLIDWORKS Essentials or equivalent level of knowledge
- Knowledge of basic mechanical engineering concepts

The topics covered in this course are:

Lesson 1: Basics
