Editorial Reviews
This text focuses on providing a solid foundation in SolidWorks along with a competency based project approach. Commands are introduced in a step-by-step manner. Each chapter addresses a progressive learning approach, lists desired outcomes and usage competencies, and identifies a project with reflective information on the previous project situation. The book complements the on-line tutorials contained within SolidWorks.

Engineering Design with SolidWorks covers parts, assemblies and drawings. The part section covers all the major solid features in SolidWorks. There are 3 assemblies.

The first assembly, GUIDE-ROD utilizes industry components and simple extruded parts. Individual part drawings and assembly drawings with Bill of Materials are developed for the GUIDE-ROD assembly.

The FLASHLIGHT assembly utilizes 8 parts made up of Extrude, Revolve, Sweep and Loft features. The parts are combined into small subassemblies and the final FLASHLIGHT assembly.

The BOX assembly utilizes a top down assembly modeling approach with layout sketches and parts developed in context. The BOX works through sheet metal features and introduces design tables and configurations.

This edition covers enhancements to the User Interface section, Design Intent area and Sheet Metal features.

The Multimedia CD includes 4 hours of movie files, 1/2 hour on individual feature tips and creation.

This book focuses on machined, plastic and sheet metal parts, assemblies and drawings. Included in this book are activity layouts to distinguish step-by-step instructions in the text.

This book contains instructions utilizing Mold Tools to modify plastic parts and to develop a cavity mold for the Batteryplate part. There are also flash movies for Mold Tools and MoldflowXpress on the MultiMedia CD.

Separate editions of this textbook are available for SolidWorks 99, 2000, 2001, 2001Plus, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008.
