Part I. SolidWorks Basics


If you are a new SolidWorks user, the chapters of Part I are essential. I recommend reading these chapters in order, since the material in each chapter builds on the material of the previous chapter.

If you are an existing SolidWorks user but new to the post 2009 releases, I strongly recommend Chapters 2 and 5. Even if you are a very experienced user, I recommend Chapter 5. The visualization techniques are things we all use on a constant basis in the software, and picking up even a small tip can add to your productivity dramatically.
