Forundergraduate courses that use SolidWorks for teaching and learning CAD/CAM for design, visualization, prototyping, and manufacturing.

Mastering SolidWorks: The Design Approach presents SolidWorks as a design system rather than a software program, using design, modeling, and drafting concepts as the building blocks, instead of menus and commands. It describes design approaches, methodologies, and techniques to help CAD designers/engineers and draftspersons achieve their engineering tasks in the fastest, easiest, and most effective way. It develops command sequences to achieve CAD and modeling tasks, providing SolidWorks syntax and details. Starting with a CAD task to accomplish, the book then helps students learn how to accomplish it, motivating students to learn more than by simply going through layers of menus and commands.
