Much of engineering design involves metal, and both sheet metal and weldment designs require specialized workflows in SOLIDWORKS to generate the necessary outputs needed for manufacturing. Learn tips and tricks about how to create workflows for both sheet metal and weldments from Hawk Ridge Systems Training Engineer, David Brown. In sheet metal, we'll talk about designing using the flange method and producing an accurate flat pattern, and in weldments we'll use 3d sketch principles, a technique that can be applied to vehicle frames, construction cranes and more. This webinar is a free preview of Hawk Ridge Systems’ exclusive On-Demand training content, where you can learn more about sheet metal, weldments, and a whole host of other functional areas in SOLIDWORKS. Check out http://education.hawkridgesys.com to learn more.
