The first year engineering syllabus is common for students across all the different branches. SolidWorks is a compulsory subject for second year mechanical engineering. The subject is included with an objective to help students get acquainted with computer aided design software and equip them to design three dimensional parts and systems.
SolidWorks is a solid modelling computer-aided engineering (CAE) and computer-aided design (CAD) program. It is extremely useful in designing and creating parametric models and assemblies. SolidWorks has a short learning curve and is quite easy to master as compared to other CAD software available in the market. This subject is a part of the mechanical and automobile branches of engineering. SolidWorks is used while developing renderings and manufacturing documentation, making it extremely integral to students interested to pursue a career in mechanical or automobile designing.
The SolidWorks syllabus includes-
1) Introduction to SolidWorks
1.1 What is CAD, CAM, CAE?
1.2 SolidWorks and its Application
1.3 Installation of SolidWorks
1.4 Design Intent, Graphic User Interface, Command Manager, Keyboard and Mouse Shortcuts
2) Sketching in SolidWorks
2.1 Two Dimensional Sketching, Sketch Tools and Dimensions
3) Part Modelling in SolidWorks
4) Surfacing in SolidWorks
5) Sheet Metal in SolidWorks
v Study Material:
It is almost impossible to learn to use new software, especially a visual-based tool like SolidWorks by just referring to a book. That is where online tutorials and videos on different educational portals play an important role. It is comparatively easy for students to understand the basics of the software and its different tools in video format! Online courses provide relevant up-to-date study material that is regularly updated. Ekeeda offers online courses for subjects of different branches of engineering. We have highly qualified professors using the latest technology to provide the best quality education. The video courses are specially designed to ensure the quality in terms of understanding the technical aspect of different topics in order to prepare students to be skilled engineers.
v Course Details:
Ekeeda provides SolidWorks course at just Rs. 1500/- for students from second year. The course is designed especially to help students get their basics right and to easily master SolidWorks.
The course contains the entire syllabus of Engineering Mechanics with:
ü Over 75+ lectures
ü 14+ hours of video
Each topic is broken down into numerous smaller sub-topics to make it easier for students to grasp various techniques and concepts. Each video is 5-20 mins in length so that it is convenient for students to understand how to use the SolidWorks software in a comprehensive manner. The topics are arranged systematically to provide a smooth learning curve for all students. The videos show in detail how exactly to design 2D and 3D machine parts as well as how to create 3D mechanical system assemblies using SolidWorks.
All our video lectures, online tutorials, and subject courses are easily available for students on Ekeeda.com as well as on our free engineering app. Ekeeda offers special combo packages on study material and courses for subjects of an entire semester. This is done so as to encourage the students to improve their technical aptitude in different subjects and help them in being well-prepared for their engineering exams.
