## Book Description

Intended for design courses, the book uses a minimal amount of mathematical concepts, covering basic math in Chapter 8 (Curves), Chapter 9 (Surfaces), and Chapter 13 (Analysis Tools).¿

Intended for design courses, the book uses a minimal amount of mathematical concepts, covering basic math in Chapter 8 (Curves), Chapter 9 (Surfaces), and Chapter 13 (Analysis Tools).¿¿

• Shows concepts to those who are curious about how CAD/CAM systems work "under the hood."

• The coverage of math in chapters 8, 9, and 13 may be ignored without affecting the continuity of the material in those chapters.

• Step-by-Step instructions help students learn SolidWorks as a design system rather than a software program.

• Ample illustrations guide students as they learn.

• Tutorials offer comprehensive coverage of a full design task.

• Each tutorial ends with a hands-on exercise that both challenges the student’s understanding and extends it.

• Examples with Solutions cover a single concept in detail.

• Each example offers a hands-on exercise that builds on the previous example, ensuring the student has gone through each example.

• Each chapter includes challenging modeling and design examples and problems.

• The book’s unique approach covers the theoretical concepts behind the various functions of SolidWorks.

• This sheds light about why things work the way they do, as well as explains their limitations and uses.
