"Inside SolidWorks, 2nd Edition, continues to provide beginning through intermediate users with a host of manufacturing-based examples and step-by-step tutorials. In addition to exploring the ins and outs of specific SolidWorks 2000 commands and processes, this book emphasizes the mindset needed to create professional 3D designs and solid models vs. classic 2D-oriented approaches. Drafting with parting lines, unrolling sheet metal, using the Rip function, step and repeat functions, assembly component mating techniques, as well as new lighting sources and surfacing functionality are just a few of the new features covered in this edition. Numerous opportunities to apply SolidWorks functionality in the context of a wide variety of manufacturing processes; plus detailed examples within each chapter that enable readers to build a sample part, make this a valuable how-to and reference manual for users of all abilities."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
