Synopsis: Assembly Modeling with SolidWorks 2010 is written to assist the beginning SolidWorks user with a few months of design experience to the intermediate SolidWorks user who desires to enhance their skill sets in assembly modeling. The book provides a solid foundation in assembly modeling using competency-based projects. In step-by-step instructions, the book provides examples to:
Each chapter begins with the desired outcomes and usage competencies. Explore assembly modeling techniques through a series of design situations, industry scenarios, projects and objectives.
Chapter 9 provides a bonus section on the Certified SolidWorks Associate CSWA program. with sample exam questions and initial and final SolidWorks models. Passing the CSWA exam proves to employers that you have the necessary fundamental engineering graphics and SolidWorks competencies.
The book compliments and enhances the SolidWorks tutorials. Although over 150 SolidWorks tools and commands are utilized in Assembly Modeling with SolidWorks 2010, the book is not a reference guide.
The book is a self-paced tutorial in a realistic design setting. Complex models expose you to large assembly modeling techniques. You focus on the design process while learning the commands relative to assemblies.
