Book Description

Engineering Graphics with SolidWorks 2015 and video instruction is written to assist technical school, two year college, four year university instructor/student or industry professional that is a beginner or intermediate SolidWorks user. The book combines the fundamentals of engineering graphics and dimensioning practices with a step-by-step project based approach to learning SolidWorks with video instructions. Learn by doing, not just by reading.

The book is divided into two parts: Engineering Graphics and SolidWorks 3D CAD software. In Chapter 1 through Chapter 3, you 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.

In Chapter 4 through Chapter 8, you apply engineering graphics fundamentals and learn the SolidWorks User Interface, Document and System properties, simple parts, simple and complex assemblies, design tables, configurations, multi-sheet, multi-view drawings, Bill of Materials, Revision tables, 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. Formulate the skills to create and modify solid features to model a FLASHLIGHT assembly.

Chapter 9 provides a bonus section on the Certified Associate - Mechanical Design (CSWA) program with sample exam questions and initial and final SolidWorks models. Passing the CSWA exam proves to employers that you have the necessary fundamental engineering graphics and SolidWorks competencies.

Review individual features, commands, and tools for each project using the video instruction and SolidWorks Help. The chapter exercises analyze and examine usage competencies based on the project 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.

1I hate it. Professor's book class
By Javier
I hate it. Professor's book class. When I asked him questions and to his assistant, they said to just follow the book's instructions. So, I guess the book could substitute a Professor or could be used for an online class.

Personally I find this book boring and puts me to sleep and since the professor and assistant didn't want to help I failed the class.

Go ahead if you can focus and go through pages and pages.

By David Berlin
This book is great, it really breaks down the steps and provides a clear process for achieving the desired result. I've only noticed a few discrepancies between the steps and the actual application of the steps.
