The text presents solid modeling not just as a communication tool, but as an integral part of the design process. To this end the book explores design intent, the use of solid models in engineering analysis, and introduces techniques from manufacturing such as mold design and sheet metal patterning. Howard and Musto provide a student-friendly presentation filled with easy-to-use tutorials. Their approach is also designed to help students understand how engineering is used in the real world. For instance, modeling exercises are largely centered on examples drawn from industrial applications. As well, "Future Study" boxes introduce students to different topics they will study in their engineering programs. It includes a free Solid Works Software, along with the most up to date text in Solid Works!
