SOLIDWORKS Refresher & Design for Manufacturing

This SOLIDWORKS refresher workshop will demonstrate proper design intent. Having proper design intent is crucial for today’s engineer. Design intent is designing for change.

Design for Manufacturing (DFM) covers four main topics. Minimize the number of parts it takes to make your product. Reducing the number of fasteners that go into your assembly. The second topic is making parts reusable. This can be done by taking advantage of design library feature in the task manager.

The third topic is design intent. You want to have intent to make parts with symmetry and parts that align with other parts.

The last topic is Top-Down Design. Taking advantage of the design style can simplify assembly instruction and the assembly process.

Open to any student who wants to learn advanced SOLIDWORKS and CAD modeling skills. Primary audience are engineering and design students.
