This course teaches several mold making techniques, using automatic and manual processes to develop cavity and core components. Using analysis tools to develop optimal parting lines, while checking for draft and undercuts in your geometry. How to import and repair information coming from other 3D platforms. Also covered is creating complex multi-core molds with multiple parting directions.

***The videos are recorded using 2016 version of SOLIDWORKS***

Learning Methodology: Watch each of the course videos first as if it were a lecture. Repeat the steps of the video along with the manual, software and file set.
