Attendees should have attended a SOLIDWORKS Essentials Part 1 Training Course and have a basic understanding of mechanical engineering concepts


**Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, all of our training courses will be presented remotely until further notice**

This course is designed to quickly make SOLIDWORKS users more productive with the SOLIDWORKS Simulation Bundle. This course will provide an in-depth coverage on the basics of Finite Element Analysis (FEA), covering the entire analysis process from meshing to evaluation of results for parts and assemblies. The class discusses linear stress analysis, gap/contact analysis, and best practices (3 days).
