Level up your Solidworks skills by mastering the Sheet Metal module!

Solidworks is one of the most popular and powerful 3D CAD programs in the world. Millions of people use it to design everything from 3D-printed toys all the way up to fully-working mechanical vehicles.

However, as well as being used for solid models, Solidworks also has a powerful Sheet Metal module that can be used to virtually make 3D parts from flat sheets.

Now you can join the ranks of Solidworks Sheet Metal users, and learn to create your own Sheet Metal models!

Why this course is different
There are many Sheet Metal courses online, but none quite like this one:

  • The course covers every Sheet Metal tool in depth and includes the theory behind Sheet Metal concepts like Bend Allowance.

  • Taught by a Solidworks professional! The instructor been using Solidworks since 2006 and even taken a range of official Solidworks-certified training courses. The instructor currently works as a Product Design Engineer and uses Solidworks every day to design all sorts of things for real clients  - no academic-only experience here!

  • Built on previous feedback! This course is built upon the instructors other best-selling Solidworks courses, and on the feedback from over 7,000 previous students on Udemy alone.

  • Understand the wider context of Sheet Metal use. As well as explaining the basic Sheet Metal techniques this course also details real world applications and uses, such as the best material to select for the projects, and manufacturing tips.

  10. 2D Drawings and Exporting Files - 2D Sheet Metal drawings and also how to export Sheet Metal parts into file types that can be widely used by third-party machines.

  11. Conclusion - This final section briefly recaps the entire course.

The course is taught using Solidworks 2019 but the models and resources used will work with any version newer than that.  If you have a previous version (2015-2018, or earlier) then users can still follow along and use the course but won't be able to open the optional, example models. There might also be slight differences in interface and terminology between versions.

Most of the features in SolidWorks are called" sketch based features", that is why in this course, we have extra attention to 2D sketching then I focused on three main things, the first one is to learn SolidWorks features, the second one is to have practice so you can use these features and the third one is to have real life examples on using these features. By completing this course your level in modeling will be intermediate. Three types of modeling are covered:

1- Solid modeling

2-Sheet metal modeling

3-Structural steel modeling(SolidWorks Weldments)

In my opinion, the topics covered in this course must be known by mechanical engineers.

"Manufacturing Engineering is a branch of professional engineering which involves numerous concepts,subjects and processes. Metal casting being one of the most eminent".

The main motive of this course is to make you understand the METAL FORMING (Mechanical working of metals) in greater detail without taking much of your time. The prime focus here is the rolling process. However, extrusion, drawing, forging, Sheet metal etc. will also be covered.

For the sake of better understanding. I have made the explanatory diagrams by myself because in many textbooks they look very complex.The language used in the course is very simple and to the point.

Hello there.

In this step-by-step course, we will mainly focus on the sheet metal environment in Autodesk Inventor.

We will start by taking a look at how to get into the sheet metal environment and work our way to set up the sheet metal defaults. Then, we will create a standard sheet metal part and will cover the basic tools needed, such as face, flange, corner seam, and so on.

Next, we will look at how to convert a solid body to a sheet metal part by modeling a die, and we will also learn which tools you should use in order to do that.

Closer to the end of this course, we will also cover how to create another panel by using the contour flange tool. By using this contour flange tool, a panel can, in some cases, be easier and faster created than with the typical tools.

Finally, we will look at a few more important tips and tricks you need to know in order to be able to create a more complex sheet metal part, such as unfold, refold, corner chamfer, and more.

I hope you will enjoy this course and please also take look into my other courses.
