Advanced Assembly

Course Overview


The SOLIDWORKS Assemblies training course is a must for anyone who creates or uses assemblies in their SOLIDWORKS designs.

You will learn how to parametrically relate different components in the context of an assembly, master the art of creating and managing all types of mates, save time designing complex mechanisms, create multiple variations of your design, perform quick selections of components, and become confident working fast with large assemblies.
