Project Based SOLIDWORKS is specifically designed to complement an engineering graphics course. It covers how to apply engineering graphics concepts, such as part prints, section views, assembly drawings, tolerancing and fasteners. It also extends these topics into the world of design.
Project Based SOLIDWORKS takes a specific part or assembly and teaches you how to model each part and its configurations, create part prints including assembly drawings if appropriate, and takes it one step further and teaches concepts such as FEA, tolerancing, and parametric design.
This book comes with instructional videos showing you how to perform each of the tutorials. It also comes with instructional videos showing how to complete each problem in the book. The exception to this is when a problem is open ended and each student will get different results.
After completing all the tutorials in this book, you will be able to design moderately difficult parts and assemblies in a realistic manner. This book is perfect for a freshman design class that wishes to include realistic design problems within their curriculum.
