SolidWorks 2008 for Designers

This textbook introduces readers to SolidWorks 2008, the world's leading parametric solid modeling package. In this textbook, the author emphasizes on the solid modeling techniques that improve the productivity and efficiency of the user. The textbook consists of 17 chapters structured in a pedagogical sequence that makes the book very effective in learning the features and capabilities of the software. It covers the Part, Assembly, and Drawing modes of SolidWorks 2008. The highlight of this textbook is that it includes one chapter each on Sheet Metal Design and ConfigurationManager.
Every chapter begins with a command section that provides brief information of the commands and tools in SolidWorks 2008. The authors have adopted the tutorial-point-of-view with the learn-by-doing theme throughout the textbook. This approach allows the users to use this textbook initially as a learning tool and then later as a reference material. After reading the textbook, the user will be able to create parts, assemblies, drawing views with bill of materials, and also learn the techniques that are essential for designing multiple models of similar geometry with ease.
