Manufacturing & Product Design 1Day Workshops

1 Day Training Workshops for ManufacturingOur Manufacturing and Product Design 1Day Workshops are a great way to get focused training on the topics you need to become more productive in.  1Day Workshops are on a per request basis, so let us know if you want to train at one of our local facilities or if you would like PacifiCAD training on-site at your facility.

PacifiCAD 1Day Workshops are competitively priced, 8 hour training courses on very specific topics.  As with all training from PacifiCAD, if you are on Autodesk Subscription through PacifiCAD, you will receive a 10% discount on the course registration fee.
Sheetmetal & CAD-to-CNC Methodology:  Request Training

  • No prior CAD skills or knowledge required
Essential Assembly: Request Training
  • Learn how to take existing 3D models and collect them quickly & efficiently into sub-assemblies and assemblies
  • Discover best-practices for assembly creation based on design-intent
Advanced Assembly: Request Training
  • Take assembly design-intent further with top-down versus bottom-up creation, apply motion with collision-detection to assemblies
  • Learn how to quickly assemble components using iMates & bolted connections
  • Create weldments and their attached symbols
Tube & Pipe - Routed Systems: Request Training
  • Use design tools for routing rigid pipes, bent tubes, & flexible hoses to assemblies
