When it comes to free educational resources SOLIDWORKS has always offered a wide variety of options for it's users to expand their skill set beyond the physical classroom.
In an effort to help organize some of the resources in one place, we have compiled a full list of the Simulation related training/tutorial videos that are available through MySolidWorks Standard for anyone who has an active SOLIDWORKS license subscription service. 
If you don't already posses a MySolidWorks log-in, you can create one using your SOLIDWORKS serial # and email address at
