Book Description

Engineering Design with SOLIDWORKS 2018 and video instruction is written to assist students, designers, engineers and professionals. The book provides a solid foundation in SOLIDWORKS by utilizing projects with step-by-step instructions for the beginner to intermediate SOLIDWORKS user. Explore the user interface, CommandManager, menus, toolbars and modelling techniques to create parts, assemblies and drawings in an engineering environment. Follow the step-by-step instructions and develop multiple parts and assemblies that combine machined, plastic and sheet metal components. Formulate the skills to create, modify and edit sketches and solid features. Learn the techniques to reuse features, parts and assemblies through symmetry, patterns, copied components, Design Tables, Bills of Materials, Custom Properties and Configurations. Address various SOLIDWORKS analysis tools and Intelligent Modelling techniques along with Additive Manufacturing (3D printing). Learn by doing not just by reading. Desired outcomes and usage competencies are listed for each project. Know your objective up front.
