SolidWorks 2012 Advanced

Video Description

In this advanced training course for SolidWorks 2012, expert author Matt Lombard expands on his popular "Learning SolidWorks 2012" tutorial to get more in-depth with the features and tools in SolidWorks. This video tutorial is built for advanced SolidWorks users; beginners should start with the Learning SolidWorks 2012 training course first. Matt wastes no time at all in this software training course, and jumps in feet first to cover the advanced Multibody topic. He continues on with working with surfaces, complex shapes, advanced solids, in-depth model techniques, mates, assembly tools file management techniques, and finishes off with advanced assemblies. Once you have completed this training video course, you will be familiar with advanced tools and techniques that are available to you in SolidWorks 2012. The author has included extensive working files to allow you to follow along with the same materials he is using throughout the tutorial.
