Publisher Description

• Intended for users completely new to SOLIDWORKS
• Designed to complement an engineering graphics course
• Utilizes many real-life parts and assemblies

SOLIDWORKS is the industry standard in 3D parametric modeling software, making it an essential tool for anyone going into a wide variety of engineering and design industries.

Specifically written for those who are new to SOLIDWORKS, A Hands-On Introduction to SOLIDWORKS 2022 allows you to relax and learn as you follow an expert in SOLIDWORKS through the basics of the software to its more in-depth capabilities. Formerly called Project Based SOLIDWORKS, this revised edition includes new and expanded tutorials. This book works perfectly for a freshman design class or as a companion text to an engineering graphics textbook.

Each tutorial in the book teaches you how to use engineering graphics concepts while modeling real-world parts and assemblies. Learn how to model parts, configurations, create part prints, and assembly drawings. As you become more comfortable with SOLIDWORKS, later chapters introduce FEA, how to create more complex solid geometries with parametric modeling, apply tolerances, and use advanced and mechanical mates. Important commands and features are highlighted and defined in each chapter to help you become familiar with them.

Some problems are purposely left open ended to simulate real life design situations; therefore, more than one solution is possible. After completing all the tutorials in this book, you will be able to accurately design moderately difficult parts and assemblies and have a firm foundation in SOLIDWORKS.

Why this book?

Instructors and learners will appreciate the thoughtful and well-organized layout of A Hands-On Introduction to SOLIDWORKS 2022. Every chapter begins with the prerequisites needed to complete the tutorials found in the chapter and a list of what you will learn. You do not necessarily need to complete the tutorials within the book in order, but make sure that you have the pre-requisite knowledge before you begin. Practice modeling problems and/or quiz problems at the end of each chapter offer an extra challenge and let you practice your newfound skills.

Working with realistic part models and assemblies means that questions and problems might arise as they would when you are working on your real-life projects. The author anticipates these questions and how to address them. For example, if you are in the wrong standard or not on the correct layer, or an unexpected window appears on the screen, tips and notes quickly remedy the issue.

Information on new commands or steps appear at the beginning of each chapter. They include definitions of new features and concepts and images of how they look on the screen. Everything is clearly labeled for easy identification. Throughout the book, readers are referred to the appropriate section of the chapter for more information on the command when needed. A command index at the back of the book lists where each command can be found for easy reference at any time.
