Jan at Formula 1 track in Zandvoort

Hi! I’m Jan!


I am a Lead Product Designer from the Netherlands, founder of LearnSOLIDWORKS.com, and an official SOLIDWORKS Solution Partner. Since 2009, I have helped over 55,000 designers and engineers to learn SOLIDWORKS, and I can help you too!

It doesn’t need to take years to learn SOLIDWORKS. You don’t need to labor over boring theory. Learning SOLIDWORKS can be faster, more fun, and easier than you thought with my courses.


When I was a beginning designer, I was disappointed with my designs because they rarely looked the way I envisioned them due to my limited knowledge of SOLIDWORKS. This frustrated me a lot.

In an ideal situation, I wanted to look over the shoulder of a professional designer, closely observing every mouse click and understanding their thought process while modeling products in SOLIDWORKS...

Since there were no easy-to-use, step-by-step SOLIDWORKS courses available that offered anything like this, I decided to create these myself.

I’ve never been this excited about what’s in store for you today… because I have been hard at work developing the ultimate game-changer: The SOLIDWORKS & CFD Formula 1 course!

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced designer or engineer, this all-in-one SOLIDWORKS & CFD course is all you need to rapidly advance your SOLIDWORKS & CFD skills.

Learning SOLIDWORKS can be faster and more enjoyable than you ever imagined.

I firmly believe that the best way to become a master in SOLIDWORKS is to put knowledge directly into practice by modeling incredible products. Besides that this way of learning is much more efficient compared to traditional SOLIDWORKS training classes, it is also much more fun.

80 step-by-step videos to transform you into a SOLIDWORKS & CFD expert.

What better way to harness your skills than by modeling a Formula 1 car? Unleash your creativity and learn real-world modeling techniques as you model and simulate this high-performance masterpiece. In this brand new SOLIDWORKS & CFD video training course, I will show you every mouse click to model and simulate this Formula 1 car yourself.

This course contains 80 videos with an average length of 20 minutes. You don't have to follow all the videos. You can skip certain components of the car if you choose to do so. This way, you determine how much time you dedicate to the course.

With this course, you literally have everything you need in one structured video training to become a SOLIDWORKS & CFD expert very soon. You will have 24/7, lifelong access to all the videos.

It took me 20 years to attain this proficiency in SOLIDWORKS. Through investment in the SOLIDWORKS & CFD Formula 1 course, you can reach this expertise level within a matter of months.

I know SOLIDWORKS can feel very overwhelming. Especially when looking at this Formula 1 car, you might not be able to imagine yourself ever being able to model such a design. But rest assured.

Even if you have no prior knowledge of SOLIDWORKS, you're in the right place! This course starts with the basics, and during the modeling process, we will dive deeper into the matter. Anyone can model this Formula 1 car with the help of this course.

Take your design to the next level by performing CFD simulations

Next to learning SOLIDWORKS you are also going to discover how to make essential CFD simulations of your design such as drag analyses, surface pressure analyses, surface friction analyses, flow analyses, wind noise analyses, and force analyses.

Have you ever wondered how engineers fine-tune the performance of their designs? Alongside SOLIDWORKS, you'll learn how to make Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations using AirShaper.

Airflow SOLIDWORKS Formula 1 car

Perform complex CFD simulations without spending €25,000+.

AirShaper is a powerful online CFD platform that allows for precise aerodynamic analysis and optimization of designs. AirShaper is used by many international brands including Red Bull, General Electric, Morgan, and Decathlon. Most conventional CFD software comes with a hefty price tag, with an average license costing between €10,000 and €25,000...

AirShaper CFD Formula 1 car drag analyses

AirShaper sets itself apart by offering flexible pricing, including the option to pay per simulation. The price depends on the complexity of the simulation, starting at just €50 so this makes AirShaper a very interesting alternative. The simulation results of the Formula 1 car we are going to create are included for free in the course. Additionally, AirShaper is entirely web-based, meaning you don't need to install any CFD software.

Discover how to interpret and optimize the performance of your designs

In this CFD video training course, you'll grasp all the fundamental principles of CFD. Not only will you learn how to create CFD simulations, but more importantly, you will also learn how to interpret the results of these simulations. I will also demonstrate how small design changes can have a significant impact on the car's performance.

Through multiple design iterations, you are going to discover how to reduce the drag and increase the downforce of your car by an impressive 236%!

The knowledge you acquire from this course is invaluable for gaining a deeper understanding of how the elements interact with your design. You will also be able to identify potential design flaws early in the process, saving time and resources in later phases.

Even if you don't end up using AirShaper (or any other CFD software) in the future, the skills you acquire in this course are exceptionally valuable to know when designing products.
