On 6th, 7th, and 8th September 2021, the IEEE AIUB Student Branch in collaboration with the IEEE IAS AIUB SB Chapter & CADD Core Training Institute has successfully organized a three-day-long workshop series titled “Workshop on SOLIDWORKS”. In the midst of the continuing COVID-19 issue, while everyone is locked up at home, the IEEE AIUB Student Branch organized this workshop session through the virtual platform Google Meet. The main aim of this session was to provide fundamental and brief notions about SolidWorks and some software drawings.

The session was inaugurated by Prof. Dr. ABM Siddique Hossain; Dean, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB; Advisor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch, who addressed the attendees the relevance of SolidWorks in the fields of engineering, mechanical engineering, software engineering, and 3D MODEL in the contemporary times’ industry. He then thanked the honorable speakers for their time and the participants for their enthusiastic participation in the SolidWorks workshop series.

The very 1st day of the workshop series was successfully led by Md. Shamsee TabrizeeMechanical CAD Designer; CADD CORE Training Institute; SolidWorks Certified Professional. The main agenda for the first day of the workshop was to provide the attendees a quick overview of “Basics of SolidWorks.” Mr. Tabrizee began the session by going through Models, Features, the distinctions between Auto-Cad and SolidWorks, and a comprehensive explanation of sketching and drawing. He also spoke about Dimension, Relations, CSWA, CSWP, and SolidWorks grammar. Following that, the speaker went into detail on basic thinking and why it is crucial for engineers. The first day of the workshop finished with an interactive question-and-answer session in which Mr. Tabrizee answered all of the participants’ questions and administered a quiz to assess the participants’ learning process.

The second day of the workshop series was conducted successfully by Md Deloar Hossain; CADD CORE Training Institute’s Certified CAD Designer and Trainer; Microsoft Certified Trainer. The key objective of the second day was to introduce “SolidWorks Features.” He began the presentation by discussing SolidWorks’ popularity and applications. He also discussed various capabilities such as Extrude and Extruded cut, Metallic part, Tangent Propagation, Many Edges, Section View, Hexagon, Sweep, Revolve, and how to generate multiple versions in a single file. After that, there was an interactive Question/Answer session and quiz that marked the finish.

On the third and last day of the series, Md. Shamsee Tabrizee conducted the workshop effectively once more. He started the session by demonstrating terminal support assembly and part modeling. Then, 3D applications, vice law setup, multiple projects, color changes, certification center, and Associate Mechanical section were displayed. Later in the session, an interactive Question-and-Answer session and the final exam session took place, signaling the completion of the workshop series.

The three-day-long workshops were brought to an end by Dr. Mohammad Hasan Imam, Counselor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch; Advisor, IEEE EMBS AIUB SB Chapter; Associate Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB who conveyed the Token of Appreciation to the honorable speakers as well as delivered the concluding speech where he expressed his heartfelt gratitude towards the honorable speakers and all participants for their valuable participation in the workshop series. The session was blessed by the presence of Mr. Kawshik Shikder, Motivator, IEEE AIUB SB, Asst. Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB, as well as 50+ registered participants, executive branch members, and volunteers.
