This class teaches how to use CAMWorks for programming multi-axis CNC machines. Learn how to make toolpaths for complex shapes that cannot be machined using a 3 axis machine. This is for more complex processes such as undercut machining and complex rotary and tilting applications.
This class teaches how to use CAMWorks to program multi-tasking machining centers. Learn CAMWorks 2 and 4 Axis multi-tasking software for programming CNC Mill-Turn machines. CAMWorks Mill-Turn multifunction machining includes milling and turning capabilities within the same machine.
This class teaches the essential skills for using CAMWorks software. Learn the basic interface and how to generate tool-paths, change tools and post CNC g-code. This will cover all of the basic turning functions to program a CNC lathe.
Learn the fundamental skills and concepts to use SOLIDWORKS Composer software to create 2D and 3D output from CAD design data. Discover how to create views such as vector line art and raster images. Explore creating animations that could be used for service/assembly procedures, marketing, training etc.
The focus of this course is on the fundamental skills and concepts central to the successful administration of SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional. The intended audience for this course is anyone who will setup and/or administer SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional.
This course is designed to teach the core skills required to perform plastic injection molding analysis with the SOLIDWORKS Plastics simulation tool. Attendees to this class should be familiar with general concepts of the injection molding process. You will learn the essential steps of performing a mold filling analysis - meshing, setting processing parameters, and reviewing results for potential defects or molding issues. Topics covered include predicting and addressing air traps, short shots, sink marks, as well as optimizing multi cavity molds and cooling time. Advanced topics in predicting cooling and assessing warp can also be covered. Training topics from all levels of the SOLIDWORKS Plastics offering (Standard, Professional, Premium) are covered in this one day course, and it will provide a solid grounding in the core skills required to run any sort of injection molding analysis.
