The additional concepts covered in the second course include:
- creating assemblies and sub-assemblies of multiple parts
- creating exploded views of assemblies and sub-assemblies
- applying visual effects
- creating animations of assemblies
- modeling physical systems through reverse engineering
- learning the basics of common subtractive and additive manufacturing techniques
- studying for the Certified SolidWorks Associate– Academic Exam
While this course is not math-intensive, it is consistent with a freshman-level engineering course and teaches valuable skills for high school students in any grade. Students who have not completed Algebra 1 are encouraged to take it concurrently.
Technical Requirements: SolidWorks is provided through Catapult Engineering Academy, and the cost is included in the course fee. SolidWorks only runs under the Windows 10, 64-bit operating system. It will not run on a Mac unless there is a Windows partition or a virtual machine in place. All Catapult courses require a high speed internet connection.
