What you’ll learn

  • By the end of the course students will be able to confidently use Solidworks to produce screw threads, which can then be 3D Printed.
  • Students will understand basic thread principles and use these to create any size of thread, for a variety of uses.

Use Solidworks 3D CAD to create working screw threads for 3D printing! 3D Printing is a revolutionary manufacturing technology that allows people to turn their 3D CAD models into real physical items. Now it’s actually possible to 3D print screw threads that really work and screw together! Add an entire new dimension to your models today. 

Why this course is different
There are many 3D Printing and Modelling courses online, but none quite like this one:

  • We focus just on modelling screw threads, allowing you to create parts that actually screw together.
  • Taught by a Solidworks professional! The instructor been using Solidworks since 2006 and even taken a range of official Solidworks-certified training courses. The instructor currently works as a Product Design Engineer and uses Solidworks every day to design all sorts of things for real clients  – no academic-only experience here!
  • All experiences welcome. This course does assume a basic knowledge of Solidworks but complete beginners can also follow along with the video, to learn on-the-go. 
  • Understand the techniques for varied use. Instead of just copying the instructor this course encourages students to learn techniques that can then be used to create parts specific to your needs!

About this course

This courses includes:

  • 1.5 hours of high-quality original video.
  • Additional resources such as downloadable models, made specially for the course.
  • On-hand support. Have a question? We are always here to support any questions and take a look at your progress.

You will learn 

The course covers an entire range of thread modelling details, including:

  1. Introduction – How threads are used and how to use the course
  2. Starting a Male Thread – Modelling a shaft – the first stage in creating a Male Thread
  3. Adding the Threads – How to use Helixes and Sweeps to create Threads
  4. Basic Finishing Touches – Ending Threads and other small details to improve your Threads
  5. Female Threads – Using a Swept Cut to create a Nut, or any Female Thread
  6. Assemblies, Tolerances and Left/Right-hand Threads  – Checking that the Parts fit together and work correctly by adding them to an Assembly. Tolerances for 3D Printing and Left and Right-hand Threads
  7. Thread Profiles and Different Sizes – Using Thread Tables to create threads of any size
  8. Advanced Finishing Touches – To really finish off your Threads
  9. Common Issues – Problems that can occur with Threads, and how how to avoid them
  10. Conclusion and Exporting for Printing – A recap of the course, and how to actually print your parts

The course is taught using Solidworks 2015 but the models and resources used will work with any version newer than that – all the way up to Solidworks 2018. 

The techniques used are also common to many different CAD programs – so you can learn on Solidworks then easily transfer these skills if needed.

So sign up today, and take your prints up to the next level! 

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who would like to learn how to make screw threads using Solidworks. These can then be 3D printed or produced using other methods, or just used virtually.
  • You may be a product designer wishing to expand your skills, a hobbyist looking to start 3D printing or an engineering enthusiast.
  • You may already know basic CAD and be looking to expand your skills, or you may be quite new to Solidworks and wanting to jump right in!

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
