In Detail

Engineering Graphics with SOLIDWORKS 2018 and Video Instruction is written to assist students, designers, engineers and professionals who are new to SOLIDWORKS.

The book is divided into four sections: Chapters 1 - 3 explore the history of engineering graphics, manual sketching techniques, orthographic projection, Third vs. First angle projection, multi-view drawings, dimensioning practices (ASME Y14.5-2009 standard), line type, fit type, tolerance, fasteners in general, general thread notes and the history of CAD leading to the development of SOLIDWORKS.

Chapters 4 - 9 explore the SOLIDWORKS User Interface and CommandManager, Document and System properties, simple machine parts, simple and complex assemblies, proper design intent, design tables, configurations, multi-sheet, multi-view drawings, BOMs, and Revision tables using basic and advanced features.

Follow the step-by-step instructions in over 80 activities to develop eight parts, four sub-assemblies, three drawings and six document templates.

Chapter 10 provides a section on the Certified Associate - Mechanical Design (CSWA) program with sample exam questions and initial and final SOLIDWORKS models.

Chapter 11 helps you understand the differences between additive and subtractive manufacturing. Comprehend 3D printer terminology along with a working knowledge of preparing, saving, and printing a 3D CAD model on a low cost printer.

Review individual features, commands, and tools using the video instruction and SOLIDWORKS Help. The chapter exercises analyze and examine usage competencies based on the chapter objectives. The book is designed to complement the SOLIDWORKS Tutorials located in the SOLIDWORKS Help menu.

Desired outcomes and usage competencies are listed for each project. Know your objectives up front. Follow the step-by step procedures to achieve your design goals. Work between multiple documents, features, commands, and properties that represent how engineers and designers utilize SOLIDWORKS in industry. The author developed the industry scenarios by combining his own industry experience with the knowledge of engineers, department managers, vendors, and manufacturers.

These professionals are directly involved with SOLIDWORKS every day. Their responsibilities go far beyond the creation of just a 3D model.

New in the 2018 Edition

Chapter 10 on additive manufacturing was updated with new vendor and technology changes. There is also twenty percent additional homework examples for the instructors with support materials.
