The Work Sessions

Each Sessions contains detailed, illustrated and video-animated instructions of a design, using a sequential, task-based structure. Each design uses the recommended component-assembly method of designing and constructing solids. Modifications to each part are updated in real-time using the Part Tree History. All designs are started and finished in the same Session, allowing you to produce multiple view, print-ready layouts of your drawings.

What you will learn in this Training Guide
This Training Guide is designed to cover the widest range possible of 3D tools which each Tutorial Session focusing on specific tasks. Some of the topics discussed and demonstrated in this Guide are:
