    Mastering Surface Modeling with SOLIDWORKS 2020 focuses on surfacing tools, an important aspect of SOLIDWORKS’ design capabilities that fills in the gaps that might be left by using solid modeling alone. If you are a SOLIDWORKS user currently relying on solid modeling for designs, or are just not familiar with surface modeling techniques, this book will add these skills to your repertoire to help you create the highest-quality models. For instructors teaching this advanced skillset, this book’s proven techniques, practical examples and training files will give students a broad understanding of the procedures needed to build freeform shapes and place them well on their way to creating sophisticated surface designs of their own.

    This manual is one of only a few on the market completely dedicated to mastering surfacing tools. Each of the ten chapters has clean, clear instructions with plentiful diagrams to lead you through carefully selected exercises based on the author’s own work experience and techniques.
