This book is awesome! I've been wanting to do more with SolidWorks ever since first taking a very basic class on it, but it's hard to gain experience. I was stuck since trying to get a job to gain more experience, but jobs require you to already have experience. This book is basically 100 projects to complete. It's not a guide, how-to, instruction manual, etc., it's simply 100 exercises or projects for you to work on. Instead of sitting around wondering what you could do to further your skills, you should buy this book and start working on real-word examples that will give you challenges that will grow your skills and give you experience industry jobs are looking for. I'm just hope they come out with a second book soon!This book won't teach you how to use your software, it gives you little projects to practice. This means it can be used to further your skill with any modeling/drawing software package!
I have been doing CADD from 1984. I have worked on many platforms....AutoCad, Pro/E and now SolidWorks. These sample are good and fun to do. They make you think of how to model them. My only complaint is that 1) Some dimensions are missing and you have to guess.(if you have the bonus downloaded drawings, you can measure the missing dimension). 2) The way they are dimensioned are for clarification and NOT the way drawings should be dimensioned.I do like the exercises...keeps me on my game.
Drawings are simple and for beginners. Many missing views and dimensions. Almost all drawings can be found with Google image search. Some dimensions are unreadable, even blown up. The "Bonus" .dwg files were unnecessarily saved in a format beyond Autocad 2010. Not worth it.
Good exercises. I like that I can print them out, draw on them, and then design it in a CAD software. Some of them are easy to do and some are difficult. I like
Nice set of exercises, plus you get a bonus set
OMG: THANK YOU: for being a 'Great' location (12cad.com) for giving informational growth, for the cad user--'one of the unsung heroes of the working world'. The '2-D 3-D Top 100 Book' is excellent: about 15 days into this eBook, of the 2-D and I am doing number 12 of this great book, (that is: I am doing 2-D first then morphing it to a 3-D version) the same day: well worth my time and price. Your staff delivers great work: thank you again.Mr. Malcolm
offered just what i wanted. the sketches where challenging in many ways to my current cad skills. it also transitions to different cad programs by its simplicity (nearly always great).
The exercises were fun to work on and not very complex. Some models had some missing dimensions, but overall I would recommend this exercise book.
