Solid Edge Essentials course that covers 3D solid modeling, assembly creation, and drafts. This class teaches users how to create 2D parametric sketch designs which drive 3D feature-based models and then use those models in both ordered and synchronous environments, then using these parts to create assemblies and drafts.

Expectations and Goals

  • To understand how to create a 2D parametrically constrained sketch
  • To create a 3D model using sketch driven features
  • Create a 3D model using Synchronous driven features
  • Combine individual parts into assemblies and build a BOM
  • Create a 2D draft file driven from part and assembly files

Intended Audience

Our Solid Edge Fundamentals course is inviting to both CAD users and Non-CAD users alike. This includes both existing Solid Edge users on older versions as well as CAD users on different software.

Course Schedule

Day Topics Covered Description
Monday Solid Edge Interface How to navigate inside of the Solid Edge software
Sketching Learning how to create and constrain parametric sketches
Tuesday Constructing Base Features Using the Extrude and Revolve feature tools
Moving Model Faces Use Synchronous tools to manipulate model faces
Wednesday Working with Face Relationships Create controlling relationships between faces in a model
Constructing Treatment Features Build round, chamfer, blend, draft, and thin wall features
Thursday Constructing Functional Features Use the Hole command and how to attach and detach faces
Ordered and Synchronous Use both Ordered and Synchronous features together
Friday Modeling Assemblies Use assembly tools to build a BOM in Solid Edge
Creating Detailed Drawings Create a 2D draft file of your parts and assemblies
