SOLIDWORKS 2016 Basic Tools is the first book in a three part series. It introduces new users to the SOLIDWORKS interface, SOLIDWORKS tools and basic modeling techniques. It provides readers with a strong understanding of SOLIDWORKS and covers the creation of parts, assemblies and drawings. Every lesson and exercise in this book was created based on real world projects. Each of these projects have been broken down and developed into easy and comprehensible steps for the reader. Furthermore, at the end of every chapter there are self test questionnaires to ensure that the reader has gained sufficient knowledge from each section before moving on to more advanced lessons. This book takes the approach that in order to understand SOLIDWORKS, inside and out, the reader should create everything from the beginning and take it step by step.

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.

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.

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

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.
