SolidWorks - Kinematics

Video Description

In this SolidWorks Kinematics training course, expert author Matt Perez will teach you all about kinematics in this 3D modeling software. This course is designed for users that already have a fundamental understanding of SolidWorks. You will start out by learning how to set up your command manager and toolbars. You will then move into learning about sketch blocks, and how to create linkages, belts, and pulleys, as well as how to model cams and followers. From there, Matt will teach you about assembly mates, including standard mates, advanced mates such as symmetric and width, and mechanical mates such as slot and hinge. This video training will take you through the kinematics in assemblies, teaching you about collision detection and physical dynamics. Finally, Matt will take you through a sketch block motion study and a 3D motion study. Once you have completed this computer based training course, you will have an in-depth understanding of kinematics in SolidWorks and be able to apply this knowledge to your own projects. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
