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 users complete 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 and Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional Exams as listed on the SOLIDWORKS website. 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. Includes Video Instruction Each copy of this book includes access to video instruction. In these videos the author provides a visual presentation of tutorials found in the book. The videos reinforce the steps described in the book by allowing you to watch the exact steps the author uses to complete the exercises.

This manual is the most complete and comprehensive book on the CSWE exam available, and it will thoroughly prepare you to take and pass the exam. Every lesson in this book was created based on the actual CSWE examination. Each of these projects have been broken down and developed into easy and comprehensible steps for the reader. Furthermore, every challenge is explained very clearly in short chapters, ranging from 10 to 20 pages. Each step comes with the exact screen shot to help you understand the main concept of each design more easily. Learn the CSWE preparation materials at your own pace, as you progress from parts to assemblies, and then to more complex design challenges. The chapters in this book are organized in the logical order in which you would learn the SOLIDWORKS CSWE exam preparation materials. Each chapter will guide you through different tasks, from part modifications, to some advanced multibody parts modeling, top down assemblies, surfaces and move on to more complex tasks that are common to all SOLIDWORKS releases. Author Paul Tran has over 27 years of experience in the fields of mechanical and manufacturing engineering; 17 years were in teaching and supporting the SOLIDWORKS software and its add-ins. As an active Sr. SOLIDWORKS instructor and design engineer, Paul has worked and consulted with hundreds of reputable companies. Today, he has trained more than 6500 engineering professionals, and given guidance to half of all the Certified SOLIDWORKS Professionals and Certified SOLIDWORKS Expert (CSWP & CSWE) in the state of California. Who this book is for This book is for advanced users who have already accomplished the CSWP title and passed at least four of the CSWPA exams.
