SolidWorks CAD II

Workshop Overview

This workshop serves as the continuation to our first SolidWorks workshop. More advanced features will be tackled and demonstrated allowing students to fully mechanically design and simulate their ideas, each on their PC in the workshop Lab.

Learning Outcomes

  • Stress analysis on parts
  • Assembly of different parts
  • Stress analysis on the entire assembly
  • Mechanically assess the design


  • High school level understanding of geometry and forces
  • Being familiar with any CAD software (AutoCAD, Ansys etc.) helps but is not necessary
  • Attended mechanical design workshop I


Hardware/Software Setup

  • The software required is SolidWorks (Provided in the workshop lab)
