Learning Surface Modeling unlocks the full potential of SOLIDWORKS as a modeling tool. You will learn how to fine-tune any small detail of a SOLIDWORKS model by controlling its topology; manipulating the “underlining” fabric of one or more faces in order to achieve the desired result.

You will also discover hybrid modeling techniques, combining surfacing and solid methods for creating complex shapes. A special lesson is dedicated to troubleshooting topology errors and repairing imported geometry.
