Who's it for?

The Solid Edge Advanced course builds upon the Essentials training course.  After assessing current ability, we introduce more advanced topics and modelling techniques. We continually reiterate best practice and an optimum approach to the fundamentals of 3D CAD. Advanced techniques and tips will help users create better and more robust 3D models.  We will also introduce you to the inbuilt tools to automate part creation.

Course Agenda:

Due to the ever-expanding toolset available in Solid Edge, this course is run as bespoke.  With the first hour spent completing a skills assessment and choosing the modules to be covered during the course. A standard course can be provided using the most common modules if required.
