Welcome to the SolidWorks section of the Video-Tutorials.Net blog. In this area we provide many resources to support your use of our SolidWorks training. We also publish frequent responses to the questions submitted by our users, in the SolidWorks entries entitled Questions & Answers. SolidWorks is the fastest-growing CAD software on the market today, and is gaining market share even in the industries previously monopolized by CATIA, such as the industries tied to aeronatics (airplane and space ship design) as well as automotive design.

SolidWorks is most frequently used for generic 3D part modeling. Don’t feel bad for CATIA, for actually, SolidWorks and CATIA are owned by the same company, Dassault. This is the French manufacturer of CATIA that bought the American manufacturer of SolidWorks out many years ago. Video-Tutorials.Net provides SolidWorks tutorials in html and pdf that support the SolidWorks video tutorials for sale at our website. Our SolidWorks training provide comprehensive and lengthy training in this CAD software that gets you working productively in just a short time. Our SolidWorks training is organized by level and module. The best place to start is with our SolidWorks Tutorials Essentials course here:
