SOLIDWORKS Learn by doing-Part 1 Parts, Assembly, Drawings, and Sheet metal by Nathan Overreem pdf download.
INTRODUCTION SOLIDWORKS is a package adding a great value to enterprises. It offers a set of tools, which are easy-to-use to design, document and simulate 3D models. Using this software, you can speed up the design process and reduce the product development costs.
This book provides a systematic approach for users to learn SOLIDWORKS. It is aimed at new SOLIDWORKS users. However, users of previous versions of SOLIDWORKS may also find this book useful for them to learn the new enhancements. This book guides the user from starting a SOLIDWORKS 2016 session to constructing parts, assemblies, and drawings. Each chapter has components explained with the help of real world models.
Scope of this book:
If you are a student or engineer who is interested to learn SOLIDWORKS 2016 for mechanical design, then this book helps you to do it easily and quickly. You will also enjoy the learning process by creating real world models.
In addition, if you are a graphical learner, then you will find this book very interesting. The topics in this book include Getting Started with SOLIDWORKS 2016, Basic Part Modeling, Creating Assemblies, Creating Drawings, Additional Modeling Tools, and Sheet Metal Modeling.
Chapter 1 introduces SOLIDWORKS. The user interface and terminology are discussed in this chapter.
Chapter 2 takes you through the creation of your first SOLIDWORKS model. You create simple parts.
Chapter 3 teaches you to create assemblies. It explains the Top-down and Bottom-up approaches for designing an assembly. You create an assembly using the Bottom-up approach.
Chapter 4 teaches you to create drawings of the models created in the earlier chapters. You will also learn to place exploded views, and part list of an assembly.
Chapter 5: In this chapter, you will learn sketch tools.
Chapter 6: In this chapter, you will learn additional modeling tools to create complex models.
Chapter 7: introduces you to Sheet Metal modeling. You will create a sheet metal part using the tools available in the Sheet Metal environment.
Chapter 8: In this chapter, you will learn to create assemblies using Top-down approach and apply some advanced mates.
Chapter 9: In this chapter, you will learn to add annotations to drawings.
