For courses in Mechanical Desktop and AutoCAD. A Tutorial Guide to Mechanical Desktop provides a step-by-step introduction to this software, with commands taught "in context." Students make and assemble two complete projects as they follow step-by-step instructions to learn commands and techniques. As they progress, individual steps for common actions are no longer provided, so students can apply what they have learned by completing sequences on their own. This carefully developed pedagogy reinforces the cumulative learning approach and supports readers in becoming skilled Mechanical Desktop users. An excellent selection of exercises allows the student the opportunity to practice their skills.

This tutorial provides a step-by-step introduction to the 3D modeling process and Mechanical Desktop 5, a powerful parametric 3D modeler for desktop computers. Novice modelers as well as those who have experience with AutoCAD or another 2D CAD program will experience the power of Mechanical Desktop as they complete parts assemblies, and drawings for two complete projects. Early tutorials gets students started quickly with basic part modeling and drawing creation, then reinforce these basics as students progress with more advanced modeling activities that introduce part modification, assembly modeling, working drawings, intelligent models using design variables, and using the model for visualization and analysis. Optional sections also introduce the use of Mechanical Desktop 5's Power Pack features for standard parts. This guide's learn-by-doing approach will help anyone who wants to get started with Mechanical Desktop 5, and is perfect for independent study or for use in an engineering graphics or 3D modeling course.
