This is the intermediate level SolidWorks certification preparation course. It covers all the primary tools used by designers and engineers to develop technical and creative solutions in the various industries. Starting from developing 3D models using this efficient feature-based Computer Aided Design application that automatically creates the 2D views in relation to 3D models which subsequently are used to create assemblies of products and mechanism. It further allows the testing of motion and interference analysis. The course has ongoing exercises and mock exam similar to CSWA. (Those students willing to take CSWA exam can register on SolidWorks website and make payment for exam fees, which is separate from the course tuition fees) ​
