SolidWorks CAD Software Lessons


15 per session - Virtual OK - Posted Dec 06, 2016

I will provide personal lessons/tutor sessions to those looking to learn or maybe need help with SolidWorks related school work/independent work. I am currently running SolidWorks 2017, but I will work with anyone on an earlier version. I can teach any skill level, but for the sake of managing time, I'd prefer to help beginners-to-intermediate users. Typically they require the most attention to their needs. I will entertain an advanced user if I feel it is something I can help with in a timely manner.

Check my availability! I am willing to use that entire 2.5 hour block, or just a portion of it (it's up to you.) I will be using skype or google hangouts to broadcast and share my screen with you (and vise versa). If you require my service beyond the 2.5 hours, I am willing to go over on a case by case basis. We will discuss that when the need arises.

Please provide the details of your need/request up front, so that we do not take up any of your valuable time going over details rather than learning! Thank you for your consideration!

Training & Qualifications

I am a mechanical Engineer at Axis Automation. I design custom equipment for the baking and snack industry. I also design firearms independently. I am working on a company to design and manufacture firearms called Apex Arsenal.

Availability & Preferences

Weeknights from 5:00pm-7:30pm
Sat: 1:00pm-7:30pm
Sun: 8:00am-7:00pm

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

Thanks to Steven I am getting much better at Solidworks, he knows how to make the most out of the program to showcase the different ways it works!

Steven was able to explain thoroughly how to effectively build features and constrained sketches in Solidworks and did some exercises with me from the... bottom up, showcasing construction details, discreet Solidworks messages on the go, manipulating constraints to achieve flexible outcomes on top giving me the chance to practice other exercises on my own!show more

Steven not only masters Solidworks but is also capable of articulating perfectly what he is doing, what the tools do and the thought process behind co...nstructing geometries. He could answer my questions and demonstrate solutions right away, helping me understand better how the program works either by drafting solutions to my questions from scratch or by showing me examples of previous work!show more

Steven not only provided me with the answers I needed about 3-D software but he went above and beyond and did research for me as well. He has been mos...t helpful!show more
Gaby received session of Ask an Anarchist from Steven
May 31, 2017
Steven answered every question I had about anarchy. He thoroughly explained his views and helped me understand how such a society is actually possible.... I had loads of "aha" moments while speaking with Steven, and he even gave me a list of sources upon request so that I can further educate myself even after the video chat had ended. I strongly recommend speaking with him if you don't know much about anarchy, or even if you want to collaborate ideas about it. He is extremely knowledgeable about the subject and is genuinely interested in speaking with others about it! -- highly recommendedshow more
Tod provided hour of Drupal Tutoring for Steven
Jan 28, 2017
Steven is clear and direct, a good listener and a fast study. We had some scheduling difficulties at first but he was very easy to work with, and I'd... do it again. I have no doubt he'll be creating awesome Drupal websites in no time!show more

About Steven Kiley

-Individually driven. -Works well in team environments. -Observant, inquisitive, and critical. -Ability to conduct one's self enthusiastically in a field of interest or expertise. -Looking to be...come more familiarized with material properties and when to select specific materials for a given objective. -Looking to advance knowledge in the CAD industry. -Would like to instruct/tutor the SolidWorks CAD software. -Always looking for ways to become a better informed/well-rounded designer and engineer. I've been fascinated by mechanisms and general design since I was a little boy. I don't think I had many toys for more than a week before I figured out how to take them apart. Some wouldn't always make it back together, but most would. As I got older, my interest turned towards computers. My fascination with mechanical engineering turned into a hobby before high school, so I would find free CAD software to doodle in on the home computer. Eventually I had my first CAD classes in high school, and that sealed the deal. My passion took me into the realm of firearms, and I found myself designing different parts from my sophomore year through my senior year. By my senior year, I had developed a rifle completely from scratch. I now have a career as a mechanical engineer, but my goal is to start and run a business for firearms design and manufacturing. Through my college years, I was a student by day, part time worker/SolidWorks junky by night. I mentored and tutored SolidWorks to fellow peers for two years. I developed a Youtube channel to provide my tutoring skills for free. Now I am here, looking to trade my knowledge for other peoples' knowledge. If you work with me, you'll find that I am very patient, considerate, and willing to teach from basic fundamentals, up to advanced professional applications. show more
