Book Description

SOLIDWORKS 2015 and Engineering Graphics: An Integrated Approach combines an introduction to SOLIDWORKS 2015 with a comprehensive coverage of engineering graphics principles. Not only will this unified approach give your course a smoother flow, your students will also save money on their textbooks. What s more, the exercises in this book cover the performance tasks that are included on the Certified SOLIDWORKS Associate (CSWA) Examination. Reference guides located at the front of the book and in each chapter show where these performance tasks are covered.

The primary goal of SOLIDWORKS 2015 and Engineering Graphics: An Integrated Approach is to introduce the aspects of Engineering Graphics with the use of modern Computer Aided Design package SOLIDWORKS 2015. This text is intended to be used as a training guide for students and professionals.

The chapters in this text proceed in a pedagogical fashion to guide you from constructing basic shapes to making complete sets of engineering drawings. This text takes a hands-on, exercise-intensive approach to all the important concepts of Engineering Graphics, as well as in-depth discussions of parametric feature-based CAD techniques.

This textbook contains a series of fifteen chapters, with detailed step-by-step tutorial style lessons, designed to introduce beginning CAD users to the graphic language used in all branches of technical industry. This book does not attempt to cover all of SOLIDWORKS 2015 s features, only to provide an introduction to the software. It is intended to help you establish a good basis for exploring and growing in the exciting field of Computer Aided Engineering.

3Good SolidWorks instruction.
By Mel
The book is pretty good, so far as teaching SolidWorks goes, but it doesn't have a glossary. Normally, this wouldn't bother me but it has bolded vocabulary words and no explanation or definition as to what they mean. However, it does go through the step-by-step process of creating a piece on SolidWorks which is very helpful. My number one suggestion is to check how much the book costs at your school's bookstore before buying it online because it was over $20 cheaper at my school's bookstore.
