Yesterday, we had our first Introduction to Solidworks Workshop. It was our first time doing such a workshop and we had a great attendance of 27 students. For the Solar Racing Team new members we will not be meeting this weekend (10/24/15) because there are not enough computers to use to teach SolidWorks. The goal of the next few lessons to learn how to more introduction material and get to the stage of surface modeling. Once you are advanced enough, you will be modeling a 3-D boat in SolidWorks and then 3-D print the boat in the Innovations Lab.
We highly recommend everyone to use lynda.com to learn more about SolidWorks. Stony Brook Universtiy offers it for free to students. By the time each group finishes modeling the 3-D boat the rest of the material should be arriving to begin the next designing phase. Thank you!
