Design a sheet metal enclosure for a previously-built part, and place the part into the enclosure using SOLIDWORKS. You'll learn about design, in-context relations, interference detection and more. Software required: SOLIDWORKS.

Have you ever had to design an enclosure out of sheet metal, but you needed it to fit around a part you already built? If so, SOLIDWORKS: Sketch Driven Sheet Metal Assembly Design is the perfect course for you. The course will cover the creation of a portion of an electrical enclosure to house equipment for assembly line processing machines; in it, you will design and manipulate the enclosure to fit your original part. First, you'll learn how to insert the existing part. Next, you'll establish in-context relations on the existing part. Finally, you'll cover interference detection and how it affects your design process. When you're finished with this SOLIDWORKS course, you'll not only know the tools associated with this SOLIDWORKS project, but you'll also have the ability to solve these kinds of problems down the road. Software required: SOLIDWORKS.
