SolidWorks for Designers Release 2005 is a textbook written with the tutorial point of view with learn-by-doing as the theme. About 35 mechanical engineering industry examples are used as tutorials in this book and an additional 25 as exercises to ensure that the user can relate his knowledge of this book with the actual mechanical industry designs.

This textbook consists of 13 logically sequenced chapters covering the Part, Assembly, and Drawing modes of SolidWorks 2005. Every chapter begins with a command section that provides detailed explanation of the commands and tools in SolidWorks 2005. The command section is followed by tutorials that are created using these commands. This approach allows the user to use this textbook initially as a learning tool and then later use it as a reference material.
