In Detail

SolidWorks 2010 Part II - Advanced Techniques picks up where SolidWorks 2010 Part I - Basic Tools leaves off. Its aim is to take you from an intermediate user with a basic understanding of SolidWorks and modeling techniques to an advanced user capable of creating complex models and able to use the advanced tools provided by SolidWorks. The text covers parts, surfaces, SimulationXpress, sheet metal, top-down assemblies and core and cavity molds.

Every lesson and exercise in this book was created based on real world projects. Each of these projects has been broken down and developed into easy and comprehendible steps for the reader. Furthermore, at the end of every chapter there are self test questionnaires to ensure that the reader has gained sufficient knowledge from each section before moving on to more advanced lessons. This book takes the approach that in order to understand SolidWorks, inside and out, the reader should create everything from the beginning and take it step by step.

Who is this book for

This book is for the intermediate user, who has already completed the Part I - Basic Tools book, or someone who is very familiar with the SolidWorks Program and its add ins.
