Overview

SolidWorks Bible is a comprehensive reference-tutorial that covers the basics, but then quickly ramps up to more advanced level topics. Every feature is thoroughly covered yet written in a way that makes learning this robust program seem non-threatening and uncomplicated. In a market full of books for beginners this is the one book that goes into extensive detail, not just on "how" the software works, but in many cases "why" it works the way it does. The author is well known in the SolidWorks community and uses SolidWorks on a daily basis as his main design tool in his contracting and consulting work. Many topics covered in SolidWorks Bible are not found in any other publication or even documentation directly from SolidWorks.

Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.

    A Must-have for the Serious Solidworks User

    Matt Lombard has produced an informative, well-written guide to the features and functions of Solidworks and offers tips and suggestions from a user's point of view. As a daily Solidworks user for 13 years, I may not agree with every one of his comments but I still picked up some new ideas from this book. While the content is excellent, it is printed in black and white, making many screen shots difficult to understand.
