Project Based SOLIDWORKS 2016

Author: Kirstie Plantenberg
Publisher: SDC Publications
ISBN: 9781630571368
Release Date: 2017-07
Genre: Computers

Project Based SOLIDWORKS is specifically designed to complement an engineering graphics course. It covers how to apply engineering graphics concepts, such as part prints, section views, assembly drawings, tolerancing and fasteners. It also extends these topics into the world of design. Project Based SOLIDWORKS takes a specific part or assembly and teaches you how to model each part and its configurations, create part prints including assembly drawings if appropriate, and takes it one step further and teaches concepts such as FEA, tolerancing, and parametric design. This book comes with instructional videos showing you how to perform each of the tutorials. It also comes with instructional videos showing how to complete each problem in the book. The exception to this is when a problem is open ended and each student will get different results. After completing all the tutorials in this book, you will be able to design moderately difficult parts and assemblies in a realistic manner. This book is perfect for a freshman design class that wishes to include realistic design problems within their curriculum. Structure Project Based SOLIDWORKS is arranged in projects. For example, Chapter two deals with the modeling of a Connecting Rod, Chapter three continues with the connecting rod to introduce the concept of configurations, Chapter four creates a part print of the connecting rod, and Chapter five wraps up the project by performing a static FEA on the connecting rod. At the beginning of each chapter a list of prerequisite tutorials or knowledge is listed. You do not necessarily need to complete the tutorials within the book in order, but make sure that you have the prerequisite knowledge before you begin.

Genre: Computers

This book is intended to help new users learn the basic concepts of SOLIDWORKS and good solid modeling techniques in an easy to follow guide that includes video instruction. It is a great starting point for those new to SOLIDWORKS or as a teaching aid in classroom training to become familiar with the software’s interface, basic commands and strategies as users complete a series of models while learning different ways to accomplish a particular task. At the end of this book, you will have a fairly good understanding of the SOLIDWORKS interface and the most commonly used commands for part modeling, assembly and detailing after completing a series of components and their 2D drawings complete with Bill of Materials. The book focuses on the processes to complete the modeling of a part, instead of focusing on individual software commands or operations, which are generally simple enough to learn. The author strived hard to include the commands required in the Certified SOLIDWORKS Associate and Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional Exams as listed on the SOLIDWORKS website. SOLIDWORKS is an easy to use CAD software that includes many time saving tools that will enable new and experienced users to complete design tasks faster than before. Most commands covered in this book have advanced options, which may not be covered in this book. This is meant to be a starting point to help new users to learn the basic and most frequently used commands. Includes Video Instruction Each copy of this book includes access to video instruction. In these videos the author provides a visual presentation of tutorials found in the book. The videos reinforce the steps described in the book by allowing you to watch the exact steps the author uses to complete the exercises.

Farbatlas der Histopathologie

Author: Robert C. Curran
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783662000564
Release Date: 2013-03-09
Genre: Medical

Es ist nicht immer einfach, einen Neuling in die Grundlagen der pathologischen Histologie einzuführen. Im deutschen Studienplan ist zu diesem Zweck ein eigenes Praktikum vorgesehen, bei dem der Student mit dem Objekt, dem histologi schen Präparat, unmittelbar in Berührung kommt. Leider ist es heute, da Semesterkurse mit 150 bis 200 Hörern an der Tagesordnung sind, nicht mehr möglich, den Studierenden eine eigene Präparatesammlung in die Hand zu geben: Wollte man nämlich jedem Studierenden bloß 150 Präparate mitgeben, so würde das pro Jahr die Herstellung von 2 x 200 X 150, das heißt 60000 Präparaten bedeuten. Dazu fehlt heute Zeit, Geld und vor allem Personal. Außerdem weiß man aus Erfahrung, daß diese Präparate zwar nach der Ablegung des Examens fein säuberlich aufgehoben, aber kaum je mehr angesehen werden - ich selbst schließe mich bei dieser Feststellung nicht aus. Trotzdem wäre es aber gut, wenn jene charakteristischen histologischen Bilder, deren Grundzüge der Studierende im Praktikum kennengelernt hat, auch weiter vor seinem geistigen Auge lebendig blieben und sich evtl. nach den Bedürfnissen des Tages erweiterten und vermehrten. Hier kann nun das vorliegende Werk einspringen, indem es Erinnerungen wachhält und in der einmal erlernten Sprache der pathologischen Histologie neue Bilder beibringt und erläutert. Kein Buch, keine noch so naturgetreue Abbildung wird zwar jemals die Anschauung eines Präparates unter dem Mikroskop ersetzen können, aber unter allen den möglichen Behelfen erscheint der vorliegende Atlas als der beste Ersatz für das Präparat.

Konstruieren mit SolidWorks

Author: Harald Vogel
Publisher: Carl Hanser Verlag GmbH Co KG
ISBN: 9783446454507
Release Date: 2017-08-07
Genre: Technology & Engineering

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

Engineering Computer Graphics Workbook Using SOLIDWORKS 2018

Author: Ronald Barr
Publisher: SDC Publications
ISBN: 9781630571429
Release Date: 2018-04
Genre: Computers

Engineering & Computer Graphics Workbook Using SOLIDWORKS 2018 is an exercise-based workbook that uses step-by-step tutorials to cover the fundamentals of SOLIDWORKS 2018. The intended audience is college undergraduate engineering majors, but it could also be used in pre-college introductory engineering courses or by self learners. The text follows an educational paradigm that was researched and developed by the authors over many years. The paradigm is based on the concurrent engineering approach to engineering design in which the 3-D solid model data serves as the central hub for all aspects of the design process. The workbook systematically instructs the students to develop 3-D models using the rich tools afforded in SOLIDWORKS. The exercises then proceed to instruct the students on applications of the solid model to design analysis using finite elements, to assembly modeling and checking, to kinematic simulation, to rapid prototyping, and finally to projecting an engineering drawing. The workbook is ideally suited for courses in which a reverse engineering design project is assigned. This book contains clear and easy to understand instructions that enable the students to robustly learn the main features of SOLIDWORKS, with little or no instructor input.
