Editorial Reviews
This book is intended to help new users learn the basic concepts of SolidWorks and good solid modeling techniques in an easy to follow guide. It will be a great starting point for those new to SolidWorks or as a teaching aid in classroom training to become familiar with the software's interface, basic commands and strategies as the user completes a series of models while learning different ways to accomplish a particular task. At the end of this book, the userwill have a good understanding of the SolidWorks interface and the most commonly used commands for part modeling, assembly and detailing after completing a series of components and their 2D drawings including a Bill of Materials. The book is focused on the processes to complete the design of a part, instead of focusing on individual software commands or operations, which are generally simple enough to learn. We strived hard to include the commands required in the Certified SolidWorks Associate test as listed in the SolidWorks website, and some more.

SolidWorks is an easy to use CAD software that includes many time saving tools that will enable new and experienced users to complete design tasks faster than before. Most commands covered in this book have advanced options, which may not be covered in this book. This is meant to be a starting point to help new users to learn the basic and most frequently used commands.

SolidWorks is on of the leading 3D mainstream design CAD packages, with hunderds of thousands of users in the industry renging from one man shops to Fortune 500 companies, and with a strong presence in the educational market in high schools, vocational schools, and many of the leading universities in the world.
