Overview

This concise guide to parametric design teaches student and professional users of AutoCAD® and MECHANICAL DESKTOP® how to use AutoCAD® Designer's® parametric solid modeling features to produce dimension-driven 3D solid models, virtual assemblies, and engineering documents. The book explains how AutoCAD® native solids, AutoCAD® Designer® solids, and AutoSurf® NURBS surfaces can be combined, converted, and modified in a powerful, unified and interoperative design environment. Users of this book learn how to create a dimension-driven parametric solid by extruding; generate solid features by sweeping and revolving; and create virtual assemblies of solid parts. The book concludes with a step-by-step explanation of how native solids, AutoSurf® surfaces, and Designer®'s parametric objects interoperate with one another, and a summary of all Designer® commands and variables used - making this book a useful, hands-on working reference for engineering design professionals and students. This tutorial-style companion book by Ron Cheng offers additional skills and support to his main book, MASTERING AUTOCAD® RELEASE 14.
