SolidWorks 2010: No Experience Required is the perfect hands-on, step-by-step introduction to this very popular 3D CAD software. Through a continuous, easy-to-follow tutorial, you'll learn SolidWorks by planning and developing a desk lamp, from modeling to drawing to creating the Bill of Materials. Follow the tutorial sequentially or jump in at any chapter by downloading the drawing files from www.sybex.com/go/solidworks2010ner. Either way, you'll get a thorough grounding in SolidWorks and see real progress as you quickly master tasks and create a final, presentation-worthy rendering of your design.
