The book covers the SolidWorks User Interface and CommandManager, Document and System properties, simple machine parts, SimulationXpress analysis, simple and complex assemblies, design tables, configurations, multi-sheet, multi-view drawings, BOMs, Revision tables using basic and advance features, and a section on the Certified SolidWorks Associate CSWA program with sample exam questions and models.

Follow the step-by-step instructions and develop multiple assemblies that combine over 80 Extruded machined parts and components. Formulate the skills to create, modify and edit 2D sketches and 3D features. Learn the techniques to reuse features, parts and components through symmetry, patterns, copied components, design tables, and configurations. Learn by doing, not just by reading!

Desired outcomes and usage competencies are listed for each project. Know your objectives up front. Follow the step-by step procedures in Project 1 - 5 to achieve your design goals. Work between multiple documents, features, commands, and custom and document properties that represent how engineers and designers utilize SolidWorks in industry.

This is the book for any new user wanting to learn SolidWorks
This is an excellent text book for any new user wanting to learn SolidWorks; either in a structured classroom environment or on their own. I've been using this book for the past three years at Great Western and I will say it is the best step-by-step SolidWorks book on the market. What's different and good about this book is that it combines the project base approach with clear illustrated screen shots. It is the only book that also provides a great multimedia CD to watch and learn.

The authors: assumes you know nothing about SolidWorks and are great about walking you through the steps with hundreds of illustrations and highlighted commands, even for those that have minimal computer skills to begin with.

SolidCAM: Program your CNCs directly inside your existing CAD system.
