Overview

This unique reference is intended to help users learn SolidWorks on their own with little or no outside help. Unlike other books of its kind, it 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.
