Overview


Cheng's MECHANICAL DESKTOP R3, SURFACE, PARAMETRIC, AND ASSEMBLY MODELING, covers the four design tools of Mechanical Desktop using a step-by-step approach to give readers proficiency in using Mechanical Desktop R3. The author uses examples from a variety of applications, which show how Mechanical Desktop is used to design actual products. Careful attention to pedagogical devices such as chapter objectives, aims and overviews at the beginning of each chapter, as well as chapter summaries and exercises makes Cheng's step-by-step method simple to use in introductory Engineering/Design courses in universities, community colleges and technical institutes. Cheng's book also complements introductory AutoCAD texts such as Cheng's Mastering AutoCAD R14 (Brooks/Cole Thomson Learning 2000) and is a comprehensive reference for people using Mechanical Desktop on a daily basis.
