The Solid Edge User Interface course is designed to get you up and running in Solid Edge. You will learn how to perform basic functions such as creating, opening, and saving files. You'll also learn how to navigate Solid Edge Help; increase your productivity by familiarizing yourself with the Solid Edge Window layout; learn the functions of the QuickPick feature; learn to manipulate your models for better viewing; and vary the view display with shading, wireframe views, view clipping, and other options. Upon completion of this course, you should have a basic understanding of how to navigate around Solid Edge.
This course will provide insight into effective model creation and the advantages of solid modeling (such as the ability to analyze your model). Define shapes with base profiles and protrusions then advance your design using closed profiles, nested profiles, open profiles, and constraints. Further enhance your skills in profile creation with different techniques for quickly creating curves, constraints and dimensions. Understand how to create features with the processes of defining planes, placing profiles, defining side step, extents and treatment options. Further advance to creating treatment features or lip features. Expedite the building of your model with feature patterning, copies, and mirroring. Practice your newly gained knowledge with projects that test your skills in the covered material. Upon completion of this course, you'll have all the tools you need to start creating your own part models.
This course explores the world of assemblies and weldments in Solid Edge. The wide range of topics includes bottom-up and top-down assembly concepts, sketch layouts, linked components, editing components, positioning components and collision detection. To better illustrate your assembly, you'll learn to implement section views, cutaway views, revolved cutouts, repositioned components, assembly cutouts and exploded views with flow lines. You'll improve design time by mastering the use of the Assembly PathFinder, Parts Library, Activate/Inactive commands, feature and analysis options. You'll also be introduced to weldments and understand how to create weld beads, prepare surfaces, design the different types of weld features, and post weld features. Most topics include tips and techniques proven to improve productivity and enhance your comprehension of the software. Upon completion of this course, you'll have studied the concepts and acquired the skills needed to start working with assemblies.
The Solid Edge Drafting course is designed to introduce you to drafting in Solid Edge. You'll learn the basics of drawing sheets and drawing views. Then create the perfect drawing the first try by utilizing sheet setup, Drawing View Wizard, Parts Library, defining views, creating dimensions, inserting callouts / symbols, implementing feature control and datums. Fine tune your drawing by adjusting the views or editing the views by managing line styles, view properties, break lines, cropping views and show / hide edges. Effectively communicate size requirements of your model with Smart Dimensions, Distance Between, Chamfer, Angle Between and Symmetrical Diameter dimension options. Save time by creating associative property text on the drawing sheet, place text boxes showing information that will not change (like title block labels), or insert OLE compatible documents. Explore assembly drawings with sections views, exploded views, create a parts list with balloons and learn how to edit the list. Upon completion of the course, you'll have all the tools you need to start creating your own drawings in Solid Edge.
