This text presents solid modeling not just as a communication tool, but as an essential part of the design process. To this end, the text explores design intent, the use of solid models in engineering analysis, and introduces techniques from manufacturing such as mold design and sheet metal patterning.

Howard and Musto provide a student-friendly presentation filled with easy to use tutorials. Their approach is also designed to help students understand how engineering is used in the real world. For instance, modeling exercises are largely centered on examples drawn from industrial applications. FREE Solid Works software is now available to students with an access card, so students can apply exactly what they are reading!

    Informative, Organized, and Comprehensive Modeling

    I am a Mechanical Engineer located in Naples, FL, and I have just started to use Solidworks 2008 SP3 w/ COSMOS. I decided to teach myself because of fellow co-workers call Autocad, "AutoBAD". Some use Pro E, but I decided to use Solidworks 2008, which by the way is almost identical to Autodesk Inventor Pro 2009, and I absolutely love the friendly interface and its ease of navigation. I bought this book today and have already made very interesting parts. This book explains in-depth tutorials of how to use all of the tools to create parts, step-by-step, accompanied with visual aids with every step. I am very amazed to have found a book with 400 pages of in-depth tutorials at such a reasonable price. The author did a fantastic job at compiling and organizing a systematic book of extensive information. Whether you are a student, a graduate, or just an inventor or hobbyist looking to learn Solidworks 2008, this is DEFINITELY the "bang for your buck". I have yet to find a similar book that cuts straight to the point of getting you to start your assemblies, parts, and drawings. This book is so comprehensive an elementary student could interpret and apply the principles. If your are trying to learn Solidworks 2008, STOP right here and order this book. It is a paperback book that looks like it is a waste of money, but its on the inside that counts. You'll be making parts in 10 minutes and assembling your parts soon after. Hopefully this helps you with your decision. GOOD LUCK!!! P.S.>>> Once you get through this book, your going to want another just like it, trust me!!!
