The SolidWorks 2014 Reference Guide is a comprehensive reference book written to assist the beginner to intermediate user of SolidWorks 2014. SolidWorks is an immense software package, and no one book can cover all topics for all users. This book provides a centralized reference location to address many of the tools, features and techniques of SolidWorks 2014. Chapter 1 provides a basic overview of the concepts and terminology used throughout this book using SolidWorks 2014 software. If you are completely new to SolidWorks, you should read Chapter 1 in detail and complete Lesson 1, Lesson 2 and Lesson 3 in the SolidWorks Tutorials. Videos are provided to introduce the new user to the basics of using SolidWorks 3D CAD software. If you are familiar with an earlier release of SolidWorks, you still might want to skim Chapter 1 to become acquainted with some of the commands, menus and features that you have not used; or you can simply jump to any section in any chapter. Each chapter (18 total) provides detailed PropertyManager information on key topics with individual standalone short tutorials to reinforce and demonstrate the functionality and ease of the SolidWorks tool or feature. All models for the 240 plus tutorials are located on the enclosed book CD with their solution (initial and final). Learn by doing, not just by reading! Formulate the skills to create, modify and edit sketches and solid features. Learn the techniques to reuse features, parts and assemblies through symmetry, patterns, copied components, design tables, configurations and more. The book is designed to compliment the Online Tutorials and Online Help contained in SolidWorks 2014. The goal is to illustrate how multiple design situations and systematic steps combine to produce successful designs. The author developed the tutorials by combining his own industry experience with the knowledge of engineers, department managers, professors, vendors and manufacturers. He is directly involved with SolidWorks every day and his responsibilities go far beyond the creation of just a 3D model.

Project Based SOLIDWORKS is specifically designed to complement an engineering graphics course. It covers how to apply engineering graphics concepts, such as part prints, section views, assembly drawings, tolerancing and fasteners. It also extends these topics into the world of design. Project Based SOLIDWORKS takes a specific part or assembly and teaches you how to model each part and its configurations, create part prints including assembly drawings if appropriate, and takes it one step further and teaches concepts such as FEA, tolerancing, and parametric design. This book comes with instructional videos showing you how to perform each of the tutorials. It also comes with instructional videos showing how to complete each problem in the book. The exception to this is when a problem is open ended and each student will get different results. After completing all the tutorials in this book, you will be able to design moderately difficult parts and assemblies in a realistic manner. This book is perfect for a freshman design class that wishes to include realistic design problems within their curriculum. Structure Project Based SOLIDWORKS is arranged in projects. For example, Chapter two deals with the modeling of a Connecting Rod, Chapter three continues with the connecting rod to introduce the concept of configurations, Chapter four creates a part print of the connecting rod, and Chapter five wraps up the project by performing a static FEA on the connecting rod. At the beginning of each chapter a list of prerequisite tutorials or knowledge is listed. You do not necessarily need to complete the tutorials within the book in order, but make sure that you have the prerequisite knowledge before you begin.

This book is intended to help new users learn the basic concepts of SolidWorks and good solid modeling techniques in an easy to follow guide that includes video instruction. It is a great starting point for those new to SolidWorks or as a teaching aid in classroom training to become familiar with the software’s interface, basic commands and strategies as the user completes a series of models while learning different ways to accomplish a particular task. At the end of this book, you will have a fairly good understanding of the SolidWorks interface and the most commonly used commands for part modeling, assembly and detailing after completing a series of components and their 2D drawings complete with Bill of Materials. The book focuses on the processes to complete the modeling of a part, instead of focusing on individual software commands or operations, which are generally simple enough to learn. The author strived hard to include the commands required in the Certified SolidWorks Associate test as listed on the SolidWorks website, as well as several more. SolidWorks is an easy to use CAD software that includes many time saving tools that will enable new and experienced users to complete design tasks faster than before. Most commands covered in this book have advanced options, which may not be covered in this book. This is meant to be a starting point to help new users to learn the basic and most frequently used commands.

Beginner’s Guide to SOLIDWORKS 2018 – Level II starts where Beginner’s Guide – Level I ends, following the same easy to read style and companion video instruction, but this time covering advanced topics and techniques. The purpose of this book is to teach advanced techniques including sheet metal, surfacing, how to create components in the context of an assembly and reference other components (Top-down design), propagate design changes with SOLIDWORKS’ parametric capabilities, mold design, welded structures and more while explaining the basic concepts of each trade to allow you to understand the how and why of each operation. The author uses simple examples to allow you to better understand each command and environment, as well as to make it easier to explain the purpose of each step, maximizing the learning time by focusing on one task at a time. This book is focused on the processes to complete the modeling of a part, instead of focusing on individual software commands or operations, which are generally simple enough to learn. At the end of this book, you will have acquired enough skills to be highly competitive when it comes to designing with SOLIDWORKS, and while there are many less frequently used commands and options available that will not be covered in this book, rest assured that those covered are most of the commands used every day by SOLIDWORKS designers. The author strived hard to include many of the commands required in the Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional Advanced and Expert exams as listed on the SOLIDWORKS website.

This book will provide you with a wealth of information about the three segments of the CSWP CORE exam. The intended audience for this book is a person who has passed the CSWA exam and who has eight or more months of SOLIDWORKS training and usage. This guide is not intended to teach you how to use SOLIDWORKS, but is written to provide you with CSWP exam tips, hints and information on sample questions and categories that are aligned with the exam. This guide is written to help you take and pass the CSWP exam. The book is organized into three chapters. Each chapter is focused on a segment of the CSWP CORE exam. This is not intended to be a step-by-step book. Goals of this book The primary goal is not only to help you pass the CSWP CORE exam, but also to ensure that you understand and comprehend the concepts and implementation details of the process. The second goal is to provide the most comprehensive coverage of CSWP CORE exam related topics available, without too much coverage of topics not on the exam. The third and ultimate goal is to get you from where you are today to the point that you can confidently pass all three segments of the CSWP CORE exam. Who this book is for The intended audience for this book and the CSWP exam is a person who has passed the CSWA exam and who has eight or more months of SOLIDWORKS training and usage. However, passing the CSWA exam is not a prerequisite for taking the CSWP exam if you are a commercial user in industry. For students that take the CSWP exam through their school, you must first pass the CSWA exam.
