Overview

Learning and Applying SolidWorks 2013-2014, a unique reference, is intended to help users learn SolidWorks on their own with little or no outside help.

 

Unlike other books of its kind, Learning and Applying SolidWorks 2013-2014 begins at a very basic level and ends at a fairly advanced level. It has been updated to include all new features of SolidWorks 2013 - 2014, including two new chapters; Introduction to Flow Analysis and Introduction to Formulas and Equations. And it's perfect for anyone enrolled in Engineering and Technology programs, as well as professionals interested in learning SolidWorks.

 

Features

  • Provides step-by-step instructions along with numerous illustrations.
