This book will teach you everything you need to know to start using SOLIDWORKS 2017 with easy to understand, step-by-step tutorials. This book features a simple robot design used as a project throughout the book. You will learn to model parts, create assemblies, run simulations and even create animations of your robot design. No previous experience with Computer Aided Design (CAD) is needed since this book starts at an introductory level. The author begins by getting you familiar with the SOLIDWORKS interface and its basic tools right away. You will start by learning to model simple robot parts and before long you will graduate to creating more complex parts and multi-view drawings. Along the way you will learn the fundamentals of parametric modeling through the use of geometric constraints and relationships. You will also become familiar with many of SOLIDWORKS's powerful tools and commands that enable you to easily construct complex features in your models. Also included is coverage of gears, gear trains and spur gear creation using SOLIDWORKS. This book continues by examining the different mechanisms commonly used in walking robots. You will learn the basic types of planar four-bar linkages commonly used in mechanical designs and how to use the GeoGebra Dynamic Geometry software to simulate and analyze 2D linkages. Using the knowledge you gained about linkages and mechanism, you will learn how to modify your robot and change its behavior by modifying or creating new parts. In the second to last chapter of this book you learn how to combine all the robot parts into assemblies and then run motion analysis. You will finish off your project by creating 3D animations of your robot in action. Finally, in the last chapter, the author introduces you to 3D printing. You will learn the general principles of 3D printing including a brief history of 3D printing, the types of 3D printing technologies, commonly used filaments, and the basic procedure for printing a 3D model. Being able to turn your designs into physical objects will open up a whole new world of possibilities to you. There are many books that show you how to perform individual tasks with SOLIDWORKS, but this book takes you through an entire project and shows you the complete engineering process. By the end of this book you will have modeled and assembled nearly all the parts that make up the TAMIYA® Mechanical Tiger and can start building your own robot.

Engineers working with SOLIDWORKS are often faced with tedious, repetitive work that can consume a lot of time, but it doesn’t have to be this way. One of the most exciting aspects of SOLIDWORKS is its robust programming interface or API. The SOLIDWORKS API allows you to write code that can perform almost any series of actions for you. SOLIDWORKS was built from the ground up to automate, and in this book, you will learn how to take advantage of these powerful tools to speed up your work. Automating SOLIDWORKS 2019 Using Macros is designed as a tutorial to help beginner to intermediate programmers develop macros for SOLIDWORKS. Experience with programming isn’t required. The book starts with a new chapter on the fundamentals of Visual Basic.NET and the SOLIDWORKS API to make the learning process easier for beginners. The rest of the book introduces you to developing macros using the SOLIDWORKS API. The book concludes with a chapter dedicated to some of the author’s favorite source code for you to use as the basis for typical automation procedures. The focus of this book is primarily on the Visual Studio Tools for Applications (VSTA) macro interface. It covers many of the major API functions through practical use cases. It will teach you the fundamentals of Visual Basic.NET as well as SOLIDWORKS, SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional, SOLIDWORKS Document Manager and Excel API functions. Author Mike Spens has been professionally developing macros for SOLIDWORKS for more than a decade. He has helped numerous companies develop their own programs and streamline their workflows. If you want to learn how to develop your own macros for SOLIDWORKS, following best practices and using well written code, then this is the perfect book for you.

Das vorliegende Buch ist sowohl ein Einstieg in die virtuelle 3D-Konstruktion - das MCAD - als auch eine Einführung in das Programmpaket SolidWorks. Es ist in erster Linie zum Allein-studium gedacht, kann aber auch schulungs- und studienbegleitend sowie als Nachschlagewerk verwendet werden. 13 ausführliche Workshops mit steigendem Schwierigkeitsgrad behandeln das Zusammenspiel von 2D und 3D und die vielfältigen Konstruktionsmöglichkeiten der Software. Zur Konstruktion wurde SolidWorks 2017 verwendet, die Beispiele lassen sich jedoch auch mit den Vorgängerversionen aufbauen. Der Leser erlernt zunächst die fachgerechte Definition von Skizzen für Profile und Quer-schnitte – die Grundlagen des MCAD. Daraus erzeugt er 3D-Bauteile, konstruiert Varianten mit Hilfe von Tabellen, automatisiert Geometrie über Gleichungen, fügt Normteile wie Schrauben und Wälzlager ein und setzt schließlich alles zu einer virtuellen, beweglichen Maschine zusammen. Hierbei lernt er, Teile im Zusammenhang einer Baugruppe zu kon-struieren. Auch die Ableitung normgerechter 2D-Zeichnungen sowie die Einrichtung automatischer Zeichnungsvorlagen werden ausführlich demonstriert. Auf der DVD befinden sich die Übungs- und Ergebnisdateien sämtlicher Beispiele. Mit ihrer Hilfe kann der Anwender sofort in jedes beliebige Kapitel einsteigen. Die Dateien wurden indes nicht nur in SolidWorks 2017 abgespeichert, sondern auch in den Vorversionen. Damit ist das Buch für alle Versionen seit 2004 voll verwendbar. Rezension zur dritten Auflage: „Das in der 3ten Auflage erschienene Buch verdient das Prädikat „herausragend“. Didaktisch und inhaltlich setzt es Maßstäbe, die Qualität der Ausführung ist bestechend. Selbstverständlich mit CD. Für jeden, der nicht im Umgang mit SolidWorks schon perfekt ist, ein Gewinn.“ -Prof. Dr.-Ing. Nicolas Sokianos, GfPMagazin 12/08
