Gregory Jankowski, David Murray - Second Edition
By zeroing in on the fundamental differences between AutoCAD and
SolidWorks, this book is intended to assist design engineers in
making a rapid transition from 2D (AutoCAD Release 14) to a 3D (SolidWorks
99) design environment.
Now fully updated based on SolidWorks 99 - one of the hottest
Windows-native, 3D, parametric modeling applications available -
this handy reference includes sample design sessions, command and
function cross-references, discussions on data interchangeability,
and more. New material is also included on important
SolidWorks 99 additions and enhancements, including: 3D dynamic
sketching, layering, design table and BOM improvements, "smart
mates," creation of linear and circular patterns in Sketch mode,
plus "unrolling" conical sheetmetal models for viewing.
- Specialized coverage enables readers with a working knowledge
of AutoCAD Release 14 to get up and running with SolidWorks
- Highlighted AutoCAD/SolidWorks comparative discussions and
SolidWorks/AutoCAD functionality cross-reference enable readers to
hone in on key differences between these popular CAD applications.
