Mechanical Desktop 6 : Visual FAST START
For all CAD (computer aided design), Design, and Mechanical Drawing courses.Designed to provide fast and easy learning of the extensive capabilities of the Mechanical Desktop designing program software, this text/tutorial features a "Visual Fast Start" and "for more information" format for each topic-together with practice drawings-and covers the full range of topics, including the "power pack" and "FEA" (finite element analysis). Both instructors and students will become productive with the software much faster than with conventional texts-allowing more time for designing and less time simply learning commands.
