SOLIDWORKS 2019 for Engineers and Designers textbook introduces the reader to SOLIDWORKS 2019, 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 users. Also, the chapters are structured in a pedagogical sequence that makes this textbook very effective in learning the features and capabilities of the software.
The salient features of the textbook are as follows:
Tutorial Approach: The author has adopted the tutorial point-of-view and the learn-by-doing approach throughout the textbook. This approach guides the user through the process of creating the models in the tutorials.
Real-World Projects as Tutorials: The author has used about 50 real-world mechanical engineering projects as tutorials in this book. This enables the readers to relate the tutorials in the book to the real-world models in the mechanical engineering industry. In addition, there are about 46 exercises that are also based on real-world mechanical engineering projects.
Tips and Notes: Additional information is provided to the users in the form of tips and notes.
Heavily Illustrated Text: The text in this book is heavily illustrated with about 1200 line diagram and screen capture image.
Learning Objectives: The first page of every chapter summarizes the topics that are covered in it.
Self-Evaluation Test, Review Questions, and Exercises: Every chapter ends with a Self-Evaluation test so that the users can assess their knowledge of the chapter. The answer to the Self-Evaluation Test is given at the end of the chapter. Also, Review Questions and Exercises are given at the end of each chapter and they can be used by the instructor as test questions and exercises.
