Mechanical Desktop 2 : Applying Designer and Assembly Modules
Focusing on Mechanical DesktopAEs Designer and Assembly modules in an applied learning environment, this text will guide the student through the process of generating 3-D parametric models, producing 2-D views, and assembling parts together. Each chapter introduces a topic and then takes the user through a step-by-step example of its use, followed by practice exercises based upon real world problems taken from many design disciplines, showing the user how to apply Mechanical Desktop to industry. As there are many ways to complete models using Mechanical Desktop, the exercises are designed to encourage experimentation. Review questions at the end of each chapter reinforce the material learned. New users as well as those experienced with Mechanical Desktop will find this text easy to follow, informative, and practical.
