I just got solidworks and dont have any training yet. The problem is i live in a small isolated city where no training exists, and the nearest would be a flight away. I see lots of training dvds and books on e-bay. Has anyone tried any of these? or suggest any?
I had fooled around with free web video and the software for a month before 'essentials training' and found I had already picked up about half of it just by playing a bit.
I have found a couple of Planchard's books useful, but only for tutorials and more focused topics. I think Commands Guide Tutorial is good, the other ones less so. Lots of whitespace/repetition, could be denser IMHO.
Matt Lombard's books are well-regarded also, I just haven't used one yet.
You'll learn a lot just by doing the tutorials.......
the tutorials within solidworks? or found elsewhere
hiy'a awjareme, pm me an e-mail address and I'll send you 132Mb zip file to get you going kelef
I got the solidworks 2010 bible on eBay for around $50 very good book published by Lombard . There are older versions available as well and I think the 2011 version is out as well
I also want to start training to operate and run a CNC mill, I am looking for training material videos etc. If you come across info, please let me know. Thank you Paul
There's a lot of good written tutorials online, just search "solidworks tutorial". There are also a lot of good video tutorials on YouTube but some of them are kind of hard to use, the resolution is not sharp enough to show an entire computer screen.
