Designing Objects goes beyond mare digital— ‘Solidworks’ on the cards
The institution through its design studio held a workshop on Monday, April 15, 2019 to familiarise designers with the basics of Solidworks software.
During the workshop, attendees worked through the basic steps of using the Solidworks software using personal computers.
Among other objectives, the attendees learned how to operate the software and how to model or design a 3D Solid object on a computer, which included designing 3D object in order to appreciate how the software works.
Speaking after the workshop Design Studio’s Manager, Hillary Lodzanyama, who has expertise in Solidworks software for a wide variety of applications said they decided to conduct the workshop in an effort to promote the use of various software techniques to solve problems at hand.
He further said the training will go a long way to impart participants with vast knowledge in software development as industries are hungry for people who are multidisciplinary.
“As you know the world has gone digital. For this reason, many industries have started embracing it as such they are looking for people who are good in software development. We thought it wise to equip our participants with the knowledge of Solidworks software to get familiarise themselves in Computer Aided Design, “he said.
He also urged those who want to boost their knowledge in software development to keep attending such kind of functions as it is for their benefits.
One of the participants, a fourth year Biomedical Engineering student at The Polytechnic, Joy Khonje said the training was very educative and exciting as it has opened his eyes in software development.
“Through this workshop I have learnt new techniques that I may use whenever I am designing and modelling 2D or 3D objects. These software development workshops are tool to the nation development as many companies are adopting the use of various technologies to increase their productivity and efficiency, “Khonje explained.
