Description

Designing for Mill Manufacturing requires intelligent design intent. This course, SOLIDWORKS: Design for Mill Manufacturing, begins by discussing some basic machining techniques. First, you'll learn considerations to make before designing a part. Next, you will work through a machined bracket design from the ground up focusing on good modeling practices, intelligent features, and DFM considerations. Finally, you will discover the DFMXpress product as well as receive a basic overview of the Costing and Sustainability Utilities included. When you're finished with this course, you'll be ready to start designing products for Mill Manufacturing. Software Required: SOLIDWORKS.

Course Overview
Hey everyone, my name is Matt Perez, and welcome to my course, SOLIDWORKS Design for Manufacturing. I'm an applications expert at SolidBox, providing CAD consulting and training across the country. SOLIDWORKS has been a leader in the CAD industry since it was introduced over 20 years ago. In this course, we're going to be learning a bit about DFM in SOLIDWORKS. Some of the major topics we will cover include Intelligent Design, DimensionXpert, and Costing. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid foundation with design for manufacturing for 3-axis milling, and be on your way to designing your own products. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with SOLIDWORKS in general, but it's laid out so the topics are arranged from easy to more difficult, so anyone can follow along. I hope you join me on this journey to learn SOLIDWORKS with the SOLIDWORKS Design for Manufacturing course at Pluralsight.
