    Engineering Graphics with SOLIDWORKS 2019 is written to assist students, designers, engineers and professionals who are new to SOLIDWORKS.

    The book is divided into four sections: Chapters 1 - 3 explore the history of engineering graphics, manual sketching techniques, orthographic projection, Third vs. First angle projection, multi-view drawings, dimensioning practices (ASME Y14.5-2009 standard), line type, fit type, tolerance, fasteners in general, general thread notes and the history of CAD leading to the development of SOLIDWORKS.

    Review individual features, commands, and tools using the video instruction and SOLIDWORKS Help. The chapter exercises analyze and examine usage competencies based on the chapter objectives. The book is designed to complement the SOLIDWORKS Tutorials located in the SOLIDWORKS Help menu.

    Desired outcomes and usage competencies are listed for each project. Know your objectives up front. Follow the step-by step procedures to achieve your design goals. Work between multiple documents, features, commands, and properties that represent how engineers and designers utilize SOLIDWORKS in industry.
