Parametric Modeling with SolidWorks 2009 contains a series of fifteen tutorial style lessons designed to introduce SolidWorks 2009, solid modeling and parametric modeling techniques and concepts. This book introduces SolidWorks 2009 on a step-by-step basis starting with constructing basic shapes all the way through to the creation of assembly drawings and motion analysis.
The text takes a hands-on, exercise-intensive approach to all the important Parametric Modeling techniques and concepts. Each lesson introduces a new set of commands and concepts, building on previous lessons. The lessons guide the user from constructing basic shapes to building intelligent solid models and assemblies and creating multi-view drawings. These exercises cover the performance tasks that are included on the Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA) Examination. Certified Associate Reference Guides located at the front of the book and in each chapter show where these performance tasks are covered. New features for 2009 The 2009 edition of this book has been expanded to include three new chapters with more than 100 new pages of content. This new content covers some of the new features of SolidWorks 2009 as well as using the SolidWorks Design Library, basic motion analysis, collision detection, analysis with SimulationXpress and the Certified SolidWorks Associate Exam.
