Alibre Design & Alibre Design Xpress Tutorials

These free Alibre Design CAD Tutorials are oriented for different levels of Experience in the Mechanical 3D CAD World.
If you have experience in Parametric Solids Modeling with SOLIDWORKS or Solid Edge - you will find them quite easy.
While they were written for use with the V6 and V7 User Interface rather than the current Newer Upgraded versions of
Alibre Design or Alibre Design Xpress, they are basically the same in most parts.

For now they are in Acrobat 5.0 pdf format Click Here if you need Adobe Reader:

The First Tutorials are for BRAND NEW CAD users - New to Alibre Design and CAD. The 'Complete' Exercises include step-by-step screen-capture graphics and text instructions combined. These are designed to compliment and supplement the tutorials built in to Alibre Design, and Alibre Design Xpress, to give more practice at performing the normal commands, functions, and menu selections for sketching, features, etc., so as to build familiarity and speed.
