This unique text presents a thorough introduction to SolidWorks for students with little or no prior experience. It can be used in virtually any educational setting -- from four-year engineering schools to community colleges and voc/tech schools to industrial training centers -- and will also serve as a reliable reference for on-the-job use or as a self-study manual. The authors have carefully arranged the contents in a clear and logical sequence and have used many hundreds of visuals instead of wordy explanations. Several learning aids have been designed throughout. Good graphical displays rather than long text and definitions are emphasized. Key definitions are boxed in. Examples provide step by step instructions with excellent graphical displays. Needless cross-referencing has been eliminated. Each example is presented with all explanations appearing on the same page. Exercises are presented at the ends of chapters. A CD provided with the text contains files that are keyed in sequence to the selected examples. Students can follow interactively when learning the procedure with the concepts presented in the text. The text contains exercises and materials that are key to preparing students for the Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA) exam. Appendix B contains a complete key and sample exam solutions.A CD provided with the text contains files that are keyed in sequence to the selected examples.
