The "Beginner’s Guide to SolidWorks" books are intended for the user who wants to learn SolidWorks in an easy to follow tutorial using a hands-on approach, or as a textbook for instructor lead training. We use a highly visual approach to learn SolidWorks by graphically illustrating every step and explaining what is being done, and more importantly, the reason for it.

     Commands are introduced and presented in a logical and increasingly challenging level, while constantly reviewing previously learned material to maximize retention. Advanced command options are introduced only after the basic concepts have been mastered.

     Each book includes almost 5 hours of downloadable video content covering every lesson, making it even easier for the reader to learn SolidWorks.

     Teachesr and Instructors: Additional classroom materials are available through the SDC website, greatly enhancing the student's learning experience, and making your teaching job easier.

     Beginner’s Guide to SolidWorks has been implemented by many prestigious educational institutions for drafting, design and engineering courses going from high school and Community Colleges to Universities.

Level I

     The reader learns commands while building a series of projects from start to finish including detail drawings, assemblies, interference detection, bill of materials, fasteners and more.  Commands are always introduced in a logical sequence helping the user master the basics and move forward at a steady pace.

    Level II

     The second level covers advanced topics ranging from Top Down design, Sheet Metal, Weldments, Surfacing, Multi-Body design, Mold Tools and more, building on the knowledge learned in the Level I book while following the same easy to learn approach as the first book.

     After each lesson students are given exercises to reinforce the material learned.
