Description

A Commands Guide Tutorial for SolidWorks 2007 is written to assist the beginner to intermediate user of SolidWorks® 2007. The book provides a centralized reference location to address many of the System and Document properties, FeatureManagers, PropertyManagers, ConfigurationManagers, and RenderManagers along with 2D and 3D Sketch tools, Sketch entities, and 3D Feature tools in SolidWorks.

Chapter 1 provides a basic overview of the concepts and terminology used throughout this book using SolidWorks 2007 software. If you are completely new to SolidWorks, you should read Chapter 1 in detail and complete Tutorial 1, Tutorial 2, and Tutorial 3.

If you are familiar with an earlier release of SolidWorks, you might still want to skim Chapter1 to get acquainted with some of the new commands, menus, and features that you haven't used; or you can simply jump ahead to Chapter 2.

Each chapter provides detailed PropertyManager information on key topics with individual stand- alone short tutorials to reinforce and demonstrate the functionality and ease of the SolidWorks tool or feature. All models for the 200+ tutorials are provided on the enclosed book CD, along with their solutions.

As you use this book, you will formulate the skills to create, modify and edit sketches and solid features. You will also learn the techniques to reuse features, parts and assemblies through symmetry, patterns, copied components, design tables, and configurations.
