WHAT IS THE SURFACE MODELING CLASS?

Go from a napkin sketch to a 3D model for manufacturing! This one-day training course teaches you the concepts and tools that allow for more organic, free-form shapes and industrial design. You will also learn to fix imported models from sources using other CAD systems.

 

WHO IS SURFACE MODELING DESIGNED FOR?

This course is ideal for any SOLIDWORKS user that receives imported geometry from outside sources, as well as users that are new to the Surfacing functionality.

 

WHY SHOULD I TAKE THIS COURSE FROM DASI SOLUTIONS?

Leverage our instructors’ years of knowledge coming from real life work experience as well as from helping other users solve surfacing issues to get the most out of SOLIDWORKS.

 

HOW MUCH DOES THIS COURSE COST?

Standard classroom training costs $300 per student.

 

*This course is part of the curriculum for the DASI Solutions Apprenticeship Program, certified by the U.S. Department of Labor.
