Introduction to Solid Modeling Using SolidWorks® 2013 by Howard and Musto remains the market leader in educating students on the use of solid modeling software for engineering applications. Accessible and up-to-date, the text relates solid modeling exercises to engineering concepts in a way that introduces the engineering design process while simultaneously building student proficiency with SolidWorks® , the state-of-the-art software tool. Salient Features • Treating solid modeling as a design tool by emphasizing the parametric features of solid models to capture the engineer's design intent. • Introducing the usefulness of the solid model for purposes such as creating 2-D drawings, determining mass properties of components, and simulating motion. • Integrating solid modeling with component manufacturing, including the generation of molds, sheet metal patterns, and rapid prototyping files from component models.
