Solid Edge Tutorials for Beginners

Medium

We know there are many people out there who want to perfect their skills with Solid Edge. GrabCAD is the place to learn. Even more so after this challenge which tasks our engineers to develop quick tutorials for Solid Edge users.

We want you to share easy to follow and straight forward tutorials that will help people get started with Solid Edge. Imagine yourself trying to learn a new software. What could be the very first useful steps to follow?

You can post a tutorial in any related category, and feel free to post as many tutorials as you want. The only criteria is that each tutorial must finish with an actual recognizable object (like a flower, mobile phone, headphones, etc.)

Submissions can be in the screenshot format so popular in our Q&A section already, or they may take a novel approach by using video etc... Please read the rules and requirements sections for details.

So feel free to share your tips with the rest of us to make this an interesting and educative challenge.

    But there are some SE functions that may need good tutorial for beginners but these are not typical modeling functions - like FEM, assembly relations etc etc... can I post tutorial for these funtions? Or you need only modeling tutorials?

    i posted an "entry" but it does not show on the entries page? Did I do something wrong? I can find my entry in the Q&A but not via the contest?

    Ok, "no need to show up here" but what if I want mine to show up here? What did I do differently in creating mine that did not tag it or apply it dierectly to this challange... And as a user who wants to see the entries How can i know I am seeing all entries if even mine is not shown? I can browse Q&A but browsing all entries would give me a more relavent return of topics I'm interested in. (for this example at least)...

    David,, thx. I added the tag, we shall wait and see.. wasn;t a magic bullet but maybe it will work? I reckon seperate tages of Solid edge and Tutorial just dont cut it 'ey?

    Matt you should put "solidedgetut" exactly as I'm writing. If you separate it in two words "Solid" "Edge" it will not work! If you still have any doubt check one of the entries and check "Tag" field. Hope it helps friend! Regards

    Hi we are about to start picking the winners. Please note that tutorials don't have to be listed in the entries. It is enough when they are in Q&A.
