Ultimate SOLIDWORKS Resource Guide: How to Learn SOLIDWORKS

Whether you are a beginner or self-taught, the best place to start learning SOLIDWORKS is with training. Formal training is an invaluable investment that provides software insight from our certified instructors, but we understand that there are alternative ways of getting more knowledge about SOLIDWORKS for free. We have self-guided SOLIDWORKS resources to help start your learning journey all provided free of charge.


Webinars are a great way to learn about a specific topic. On average, our webinars last about 30 minutes.

  • Webinars – These are scheduled events where you can interact with the presenter and get questions answered. If you were unable to attend our live webinars, don’t worry! We will send a recording.
  • On-Demand Webinars – When you have time and want to learn more about a topic, these on-demand webinars are a great resource.


Videos make learning something new so much easier. We have a large catalog of videos to help with specific questions and learn the latest tips & tricks.

  • Video Tech Tips – New tech tip videos posted twice weekly that range from 1-5 minutes. This is a great way to learn new things, fast!
  • Video Library – Over the years, we have created videos to help others with 3D CAD and 3D printing. This channel is compiled of how to’s, case studies and tips. Although new videos will be posted on our TriMech Group channel here, there are many past tech tip videos on this channel that can help you become proficient in your workflow.


Our team is publishing multiple blogs per week written by our SOLIDWORKS Experts. These blogs cover various topics and questions we hear from SOLIDWORKS users. These topics range from material comparisons to software updates. When you have a question, there’s a blog for that.
