SolidWorks 2012 Essential Training with Gabriel Corbett


In this course, author Gabriel Corbett shows how to create manufacturing-ready parts and assemblies in SolidWorks 2012. Beginning with simple 2D sketching and the software's sketch-editing tools, the course provides step-by-step instruction on building 3D geometry from 2D sketches. The course covers creating complex 3D objects with the Extrude, Revolve, Sweep, and Loft tools and shows building complex assemblies by mating individual parts together into robust assemblies and structures.

The course shows how to cut and revolve holes into parts and use the Hole Wizard tool to generate industry standard holes like counter bores, counter sinks, and taps. Best practice for designing parts is emphasized throughout the course as well as methods for creating parts faster and easier using equations, mirroring, and patterning tools. The course wraps up with generating manufacturing-ready drawings complete with an itemized Bill of Materials. As a bonus feature, Gabriel shows how to photo render a final design. Exercise files are included with the course.

Topics include:

  • Starting a new sketch

  • Adding and removing relationships

  • Dimensioning a sketch for specific size attributes

  • Setting system options, units, and templates

  • Drawing polygons

  • Drawing circles, arcs, and splines

  • Creating offset geometry

  • Moving, copying, and rotating elements

  • Working with planes, axes, and the coordinate system

  • Using Revolve and Loft to create 3D objects

  • Trimming with the Revolve, Loft, and Sweep cuts

  • Creating smooth and angled corners with fillets and chamfers

  • Designing with sketch blocks

  • Working with subassemblies

  • Creating threaded parts

  • Integrating Excel to manage design tables

  • Adding dimension notations to a drawing

  • Rendering an image of a part or assembly

What customers say

Dorcas Gmelch, DE
I want to thank you for your timely response. You got right back to me tonight and I'm blown away, thanks. You guys have been first cabin, from start to finish, and I thank you. I'll never buy any software anywhere else.
Robert, US
I appreciate the help the support team provided with the installation on my computer. The tech spent well over three hours trying to get the product installed and the licensing handled. We went through numerous restarts and they always responded promptly after I sent a password for the remote access to my computer. I will highly recommend your company to others for software purchase. Thanks again.

I am happy to say that my computer has the product I purchased and is working well. Thank you so much for caring and following up. I will be a repeat customer just for that :)
Wayne, AU
The rating for Customer Support doesn't do the guys justice! I had a niggling problem with the installation and they supported me through the entire process. In the end they did a remote install - problem fixed! Very happy with the outstanding service they provided. Thanks again guys.
