Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional (CSWP)


A Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional (CSWP) is an individual who has successfully passed our advanced skills examination. Each CSWP has proven their ability to design and analyze parametric parts and moveable assemblies using a variety of complex features in SOLIDWORKS software.

Segment 1: (90 Minutes)

  • Creating a part from a drawing
  • Using linked dimensions and equations to aid in modeling
  • Using equations to relate dimensions
  • Updating parameters and dimension sizes
  • Mass property analysis
  • Modifying geometry on initial part to create a more complex part
  • Modifying parameters on the part at different stages while maintaining all other dimensions and design intent

Segment 2: (40 Minutes)

  • Creating configurations from other configurations
  • Changing configurations
  • Creation of configurations using a Design Table
  • Mass properties
  • Changing and/or rearranging features of an existing SOLIDWORKS part

Segment 3: (80 Minutes)

  • Creating an assembly
  • Adding parts to an assembly
  • Doing collision detection when moving a part in an assembly
  • Interference detection
  • Basic and advanced mates
  • Rigid and Flexible subassemblies
  • Replacing a part with another part in an assembly
  • Creating a coordinate system
  • Using a coordinate system to perform mass properties analysis

Note: Excel should be installed on the computer you are running SOLIDWORKS to ensure that your Design Table functionality works properly for the exam.
