Contact your SOLIDWORKS Reseller and they should be able to provide you with the training you seek...either in a physical training manual or even better with direct onsite/remote training. SOLIDWORKS Corp is not going to create a physical manual for Visualize, but rather allow the vast network of Resellers to create their own Visualize training manual tailored specifically to their customers. All Resellers have received the Visualize training and can fully capable to produce amazing training guides. I've seen some really nice ones already!
We at SOLIDWORKS Corp will continue to expand upon the Visualize tutorials and use those as the basis of our training materials. Also check out the Visualize Help guide, which covers every setting of the Visualize products:
I'd also like to hear what the rest of the Visualize community has been doing to expand their Visualize skillset or training materials you've come across.
I've contacted my reseller and they have lots of training on Solidworks but nothing on Visualize, which is the same thing that I'm finding with the printed manuals - lots on Solidworks and literally nothing on Visualize. Let me know if you hear of any other resellers with Visualize specific manuals.
The Learning Resources team at SW saw a customer trend developing that was leading more towards digital learning, rather than the printed manuals that were historically created for other SW products...which is exactly why there are more printed training manuals for older SW products.
Since Visualize is a new product in the SOLIDWORKS family, we decided to embrace that trend and produce digital tutorials to cover the main Visualize workflows and features. Visualize is a very visual product, so it made sense to test this new digital trend with Visualize. We then encouraged all resellers to create customer-tailored Visualize training content for each of their customers.
Who is your reseller? I'm certain Hawkridge and GoEngineer have some sort of additional Visualize training content for their customers.
Hi Terry ,
not sure where you are located but Alen Topic and I have put together a course that is both in class and online courses for Visualize (Standard and Pro). it also has been updated to reflect the most up to date 2017 content.
