Engineering and Technical Drawing Using Solid Edge Version 20
Solid Edge is a powerful solids modeling software used by many large companies. Engineering and Technical Drawing Using Solid Edge Version 20 features a series of tutorials that guide new users of Solid Edge 20 to become intermediate users with the knowledge to create complex designs. A large number of problem layouts are provided covering the many features of Solid Edge.
This book introduces readers to the process used to create models. Specific topics covered in this process include 2D sketching, constraining sketches, creating solids, producing drawings, dimensioning, and printing. Within the modeling environments the reader will learn to create parts, assemblies, sheet metal parts, weldments, and drawings. Also mentioned in this book are additional tools for animation, linked motion, finite element stress analysis, bent tubing and wire routing.
This book, while specific to Solid Edge 20, teaches the principles of solid modeling that are true of nearly all CAD software packages. Readers of this book will find it easy to transfer the techniques learned in this book to other CAD packages.
What you'll learn in this book:
- Solid Modeling principles
- The Solid Edge 20 user interface
- The process used to create models
