FabShops - Intro to SolidWorks


No matter what engineering project you’re working on, you’ll find that you’ll need to use some sort of 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) software to design, prototype, and test your design solutions. Learn the basics of SolidWorks, a 3D CAD software available throughout campus, through this hands-on workshop. This introductory workshop will cover the basics of making parts on SolidWorks and how to create assemblies. Students will have the opportunity to design their own part that they can use during an in-person 3D-Printing FabShops 1-on-1 Session!

Preparation and Resources:

No prior experience is necessary! All software and computers will be provided.

Due to COVID-19 distancing guidelines and procedures, this FabShop will occur via Zoom. At the time of the event, a Zoom link will be sent to you via the email you registered with. 

Participants MUST review the Remote FabShop Instructions 2 to 3 days in advance as Remote computer access requires a software installation.
