Home > Solidworks Simulation



SOLIDWROKS Simulation training will teach you how to use the SOLIDWORKS simulation software to help you analyse static structural behaviour of your SOLIDWORKS part and assembly models. 

The focus of this training is on the fundamental skills and concepts central to the successful use of SOLIDWORKS Simulation.  You will cover some of the following topics: Process of the analysis, meshing, run a study, adding connections, h-elements, p-elements and viewing results.

Admission Requirements:

It is recommended that delegates have a working knowledge of one or more of the following:

  • Attended a Introduction to Technical Drawing OR have experience with draughting, design, or engineering principles.
  • Comper Literacy Skills
  • Understanding and Reading of Technical Drawings



  • R6,100.00 Incl Vat (Includes Training Certified Manual, Dataset CD)


Assisted Distance Learning

  • R4,400.00 Incl Vat (Includes study kit)


We provide flexible and affordable payment options to ensure the course is always within your reach.

Who Should Attend

All SOLIDWORKS Simulation users wishing to create better designs in SOLIDWORKS by performing analysis and evaluating the behavior of their parts and assemblies under actual service conditions.

Our Learning Methods

At The Draughting Academy we understand that that each person prefers different learning styles and techniques influenced by circumstances, location, field of study and learning preference. We have therefore developed learning methods to suit all learners to ensure everyone has all the opportunity to achieve learning success. We deliver our qualifications via three modern and flexible methods.

Full Time

Reach your full potential through our instructor led classes combined with interactive lessons, practical assignments and in field experience. Our full time offering consist of a full working day, 8 hours per day divided into multiple periods.
