Course Format and Agenda:
Course teacher is Robert Footitt from RF3 Design ltd on behalf of Mintronics. Robert has organised and managed many training courses for Mintronics.
Provide feedback on course completion and a certificate will be provided by post
The format is a guided tutorial, followed by practice sessions on various elements of the software. We are also happy to discuss specific use cases based on customer’s individual needs, and these are covered at the end of each day. If any attendees have drawings of parts they would like advice on please bring them along
This course focuses on the basics of 3D modelling including robust sketching and feature creation. The course covers features available in Alibre Design, including solid modelling, sheet metal and assembly. This course does not cover the more advanced modelling techniques available (such as loft with guide curves). For users interested in these capabilities, an advanced course is also available.
Please note: The following timings are approximate, and depend on the level of experience of attendees. If possible we may cover some more advanced capabilities of the software on day 2 if there is sufficient time. Tea, coffee and water are available throughout the course.
