SolidWorks is engineering design software, especially 3D model design which is produced by DASSAULT SYSTEMS. This software are usually used in designing 3D model. There are also 3 displays in SolidWorks, they are parts for drawing model, then the assembly for assembling or combining between one part model to another part model that has been drawn becomes some constructions that we want, and the last is drawing to draw or to present a part model or an assembly that we’ve made to be continued for being a work sheet that is already up to be printed and continued to the industry. I hope you can finish to learn this basic for Solidworks, introduction of solidworks ,solidworks tutorial basic.

The Introduction of Solidworks

SolidWorks  was declared for the first time in 1995 as a competitor from the other several CAD software such as a Pro Engineer, Siemens, Unigraphics, Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk AutoCAD, and Catia. SolidWorks corporation was established by John Hirschtick in 1993 by recruiting professional engineers to develope his corporation that was related on CAD 3D software with his office center in Concord, Massachusetts, and releasing his first product in 1995 which is called SolidWorks 95.

In 1997 Dassault Systemes, which is popular with his product 3D software named CATIA Cad, admiting his corporation side and now he has 100% stock from SolidWorks. SolidWorks has been leaded by John McEleney since 2001 ‘till July,2007. And now, SolidWorks is leaded by Jeff Ray. Nowadays, there are many manufacture industries use this SolidWorks software. It is measured that more than 3-4 million engineers has been using this software from 80.000 corporations in the world.

The Basic Display of SolidWorks

“Basic Display SolidWorks image”

This is the visible image from the basic display of Solid Works before the software’s run. There are many kind of features which are served by Solid Works. Started from drawing part model then metal sheet and etc. In this software, we can also use engineering analysis such as a stressed analysis or fluid flow analysis.
