This book will teach you everything you need to know to start using SOLIDWORKS 2016 with easy to understand, step-by-step tutorials. This book features a simple robot design used as a project throughout the book. You will learn to model parts, create assemblies, run simulations and even create animations of your robot design. No previous experience with Computer Aided Design (CAD) is needed since this book starts at an introductory level. The author begins by getting you familiar with the SOLIDWORKS interface and its basic tools right away. You will start by learning to model simple robot parts and before long you will graduate to creating more complex parts and multi-view drawings. Along the way you will learn the fundamentals of parametric modeling through the use of geometric constraints and relationships. You will also become familiar with many of SOLIDWORKS powerful tools and commands that enable you to easily construct complex features in your models. Also included is coverage of gears, gear trains and spur gear creation using SolidWorks. This book continues by examining the different mechanisms commonly used in walking robots. You will learn the basic types of planar four-bar linkages commonly used in mechanical designs and how to use the GeoGebra Dynamic Geometry software to simulate and analyze 2D linkages. Using the knowledge you gained about linkages and mechanism, you will learn how to modify your robot and change its behavior by modifying or creating new parts. In the final chapter of this book you learn how to combine all the robot parts into assemblies and then run motion analysis. You will finish off your project by creating 3D animations of your robot in action. There are many books that show you how to perform individual tasks with SOLIDWORKS, but this book takes you through an entire project and shows you the complete engineering process. By the end of this book you will have modeled and assembled nearly all the parts that make up the TAMIYA Mechanical Tiger and can start building your own robot.

Das vorliegende Buch ist sowohl ein Einstieg in die virtuelle 3D-Konstruktion - das MCAD - als auch eine Einführung in das Programmpaket SolidWorks. Es ist in erster Linie zum Allein-studium gedacht, kann aber auch schulungs- und studienbegleitend sowie als Nachschlagewerk verwendet werden. 13 ausführliche Workshops mit steigendem Schwierigkeitsgrad behandeln das Zusammenspiel von 2D und 3D und die vielfältigen Konstruktionsmöglichkeiten der Software. Zur Konstruktion wurde SolidWorks 2017 verwendet, die Beispiele lassen sich jedoch auch mit den Vorgängerversionen aufbauen. Der Leser erlernt zunächst die fachgerechte Definition von Skizzen für Profile und Quer-schnitte – die Grundlagen des MCAD. Daraus erzeugt er 3D-Bauteile, konstruiert Varianten mit Hilfe von Tabellen, automatisiert Geometrie über Gleichungen, fügt Normteile wie Schrauben und Wälzlager ein und setzt schließlich alles zu einer virtuellen, beweglichen Maschine zusammen. Hierbei lernt er, Teile im Zusammenhang einer Baugruppe zu kon-struieren. Auch die Ableitung normgerechter 2D-Zeichnungen sowie die Einrichtung automatischer Zeichnungsvorlagen werden ausführlich demonstriert. Auf der DVD befinden sich die Übungs- und Ergebnisdateien sämtlicher Beispiele. Mit ihrer Hilfe kann der Anwender sofort in jedes beliebige Kapitel einsteigen. Die Dateien wurden indes nicht nur in SolidWorks 2017 abgespeichert, sondern auch in den Vorversionen. Damit ist das Buch für alle Versionen seit 2004 voll verwendbar. Rezension zur dritten Auflage: „Das in der 3ten Auflage erschienene Buch verdient das Prädikat „herausragend“. Didaktisch und inhaltlich setzt es Maßstäbe, die Qualität der Ausführung ist bestechend. Selbstverständlich mit CD. Für jeden, der nicht im Umgang mit SolidWorks schon perfekt ist, ein Gewinn.“ -Prof. Dr.-Ing. Nicolas Sokianos, GfPMagazin 12/08

Through a series of step-by-step tutorials and numerous hands-on exercises, this book aims to equip the reader with both a good understanding of the importance of space in the abstract world of engineers and the ability to create a model of a product in virtual space – a skill essential for any designer or engineer who needs to present ideas concerning a particular product within a professional environment. The exercises progress logically from the simple to the more complex; while Solid Works or NX is the software used, the underlying philosophy is applicable to all modeling software. In each case, the explanation covers the entire procedure from the basic idea and production capabilities through to the real model; the conversion from 3D model to 2D manufacturing drawing is also clearly explained. Topics covered include modeling of prism, axisymmetric, symmetric and sophisticated shapes; digitization of physical models using modeling software; creation of a CAD model starting from a physical model; free form surface modeling; modeling of product assemblies following bottom-up and top-down principles; and the presentation of a product in accordance with the rules of technical documentation. This book, which includes more than 500 figures, will be ideal for students wishing to gain a sound grasp of space modeling techniques. Academics and professionals will find it to be an excellent teaching and research aid, and an easy-to-use guide.
