SOLIDWORKS Surface Modelling Training Course

DURATION: 2 Days

DESCRIPTION

The surface modelling course is ideal for consumer and product designers who have a requirement to create complex shapes and forms. This course introduces the concept of modelling with surfaces.

The ability to mix and match between surfaces and solids is discussed in depth and a typical surface modelling workflow is one of the topics covered.

As I had been working on 2015 and the course uses 2017 I had trouble going through the menus, the trainer showed patience and paced the training so I could keep up
Surface Modelling Training
Tom was very knowledgeable and was happy to answer my questions based on things i was trying to do with SOLIDWORKS, so not only answering training course questions. HE also made sure we covered everything and managed the time well.
Surface Modelling Training
Time management wasn't great. We had to rush the last few chapters and skip quite a few really good things from the last sections.
Feedback Response: Hi,
Thanks for leaving this feedback for us. I will discuss with your instructor what they could have done to better manage the course content. I'll contact you directly as I am keen to ensure that you don't feel that your learning experience has been compromised. Admittedly it is a busy course, full of content, and there is one lesson we tend not to teach as standard because of its duration, also many of the skills in it are Assembly based. We also try to make our courses interactive and engaging but I like your ideas below thanks for leaving them, we are always keen to listen to our customers comments and use these to improve our services.
Kind Regards,

Great trainer,use of on screen pointer very useful visual aid
Surface Modelling Training
Kyle has a good grasp of the course content and his participants skill level and areas of interest helping tailor his presentation to the audience. Kyle is able to handle participant queries quickly and can usually throw a quick worked example together in addition to the course material to help answer the question, he is able to do so without deviating from the course timetable / duration which is testament to his grasp of the software and it's many tools and functions. The new training facility is very conveniently situated for those in West Central Scotland and can be reached extremely easily by train.
Surface Modelling Training
Communicated well and answered questions readily
Surface Modelling Training
Patrick is probably the best instructor I have learnt from. Understands the right pace and the fact that there is not a person who can focus 100% for 8h.
Surface Modelling Training
The trainer is patient and full of knowledge on the subject.
Surface Modelling Training
Benji Wilson was not only an extremely knowledgeable tutor, he was also hilarious. He kept it interesting and also adjusted the curriculum to my specific requirements. Really glad to have done this course.
Surface Modelling Training
Course was presented excellently in a clear friendly way.
Surface Modelling Training
Very professional, subject well explained, all the questions answered
Surface Modelling Training
Ollie was really helpful and knowledgeable. He was able to convey concepts clearly and efficiently.
Surface Modelling Training
Very useful course, 1 to 1 help available when needed
Surface Modelling Training
Olly was very good, clear and was always happy to help. A small group helped if we needed to ask questions or were stuck on a particular exercise.
Surface Modelling Training
Service Rating : Excellent, very knowledgeable and good with instructions
Product : Plenty of content, introduced to features that will improve the way I model.
Surface Modelling Training
A very nice guy who put things across well and also had a very good product knowledge
Surface Modelling Training
Service Rating : Very helpful, went away and returned with various suggestions which helped with my problem
Product : david was pleasant, helpful and very knowledgeable of SOLIDWORKS. He kept the pace just right to keep the less experienced attendees at the same point at all times. would definitely recommend!
Surface Modelling Training
Very clear and calm tone, course delivered at a nice pace. Our trainer answered every question put to her and regularly offered up additional useful information.
Surface Modelling Training
Service Rating : She was very clear in the way she was explaining things. Open for questions and capable of dealing with our issues during the course and exercises.
Product : Not much relevant to what I do specifically but contained a lot of smart tricks that I might use in the future. Very interesting the part on repairing models using surfaces and driving models with surfaces. I would honestly spend less time in teaching how to create models using surfaces from scratch and a bit more in the lesson of doing solid parts driven by surfaces.
Surface Modelling Training
Very clear and helpful throughout the course.
Surface Modelling Training
Service Rating : Simon was efficient in getting through the materials while still adjusting the pace to the people in the room. He was able to answer all questions we had and advice us on how to best improve our skills in the future (SOLIDWORKS exams, other training, what is new in SOLIDWORKS 2016...etc)
Product : I was disappointed the surface boundary features was not used nor detailed much, as it seems like one of the most controllable surface feature. On the other hand there was a lot of materials on the filled surface, which does not come across as a very controlled way to create geometry. A few good tips and how to intersect both 2d and 3d geometry is the main thing I take away from these two days. The last part of the course is about modelling plastic features but there is no surfacing involved; it did not seem relevant to me. I would have hoped more depth into using surfaces in master modelling instead.
Feedback Response: Hi, thanks for you feedback about our training course. On the Surface Modelling course there are a number of commands that need to be explained and taught. It's one of the trickiest courses to get the pace of the lesson correct as we see hugely varying levels of skill from those who attend. One of the things we do to try and ensure attendees are all at a comparable level is to show on the Surface Modelling booking page that the Advanced Part Modelling course is a prerequisite. In this course the 'solid' version of the boundary feature is taught and studied in great detail. The surface modelling version of the boundary feature is nearly identical to the solid version, other than that the resulting geometry will clearly be a surface body rather than a solid. For this reason the boundary feature is not shown as much attention in the Surface Modelling course (although it is covered briefly) as the majority of the attendees already have a good understanding of the functionality. I will email you directly with a PDF offering some additional advice about the boundary feature and to check that there is nothing we can do to help you further. 

Kind Regards,

I would happily attend another course provided by the same company.
Product : The training course had a lot of content and there was a lot of information to get across. This was achieved in the two days. A good base of the tool is required and any shortcomings in knowledge can be overcome as the course trainer has a lot of knowledge of the tool and practices.

Product : very good course very informative and good teaching.
Surface Modelling Training
Service Rating :Friendly and knowledgable. There were questions that he could not answer, but these were researched overnight effectivley. Some actions could not be completed by him on SOLIDWORKS, but this is because the software is dodgy so I can't mark down the trainer on this.
Product : The example models were flawed in several instances. There were typos in the course book. I reported these to the trainer, and believe that he will pass this on to the relevant authorities.
