Take a step-by-step, guided tour of SolidWorks that can be tailored to match your unique pace, allowing you to progress easily and efficiently through the content to achieve your ultimate goal: using the software effectively. Harnessing the power of numerous and varied tutorial exercises, SOLIDWORKS 2012 TUTOR will take you through a series of steps required for the completion of a final product, whether it is a 3D part or an assembly file. Each chapter is arranged so that it builds upon the skills and commands covered in the chapters before, beginning with an introduction to the software and the basics of navigating the user interface. Coverage then progresses to creating sketches, then creating part files, and finally, creating assemblies. Using a combination of short, command-focused exercises and longer, more involved tutorial files, you will find this a valuable tool for establishing a solid foundation in SolidWorks and then, once you have mastered that, for fine tuning your skills.
