Intro to SOLIDWORKS 3D Mechanical CAD & FEA
May 5, 2015 | 10:00am
In this webinar, we’ll take a look at how SOLIDWORKS can provide a complete solution to help you create more powerful and accurate designs in less time.  See how easy SOLIDWORKS 3D modeling software is to use and how to create detailed production quality parts, assemblies, and drawings. You'll also learn about utilizing FEA (Finite Element Analysis) through SOLIDWORKS Simulation to ensure your designs will stand up to their vigorous real-world requirements before you even reach the prototype stage. Finally, discover how to more accurately track your revisions and workflows, and generate assembly instructions concurrently with the design process, saving you from tedious rework once the design is finalized.
