ZW3D Training Course Detail

Course Title: (ZW3D) Seminar Class:

An Introduction to ZW3D

Learn the fundamental principles of 3D parametric part design, assembly design, and creating production-ready part and assembly drawings using ZW3D. Hands-on exercises are used throughout the course.


Provide users with a thorough understanding of the principal 3D design, validation, and documentation processes necessary for developing products using ZW3D.
After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Capture design intent by using the proper techniques and recommended workflows for creating intelligent 3D parametric parts

  • Create, place, and constrain custom and standard components in an assembly

  • Simulate mechanisms, animate assembly designs, and check for interferences

  • Document designs using base, projected, section, detail, and isometric drawing views

  • Document assemblies using standard and exploded drawing views.

  • Follow drafting standards while dimensioning and annotating drawing views with automated balloons and parts lists.
