Are you ready to master the world's most popular program for creating 3D models? Autodesk's Mechanical Desktop is a powerful 3D modeling program for creating computer solid models that are flexible and readily modified to meet the changing conditions and design criteria of real-world objects, or parts. They are called parametric solid models because they are based on user-applied dimensional and geometric parameters.
Renowned teacher and author John Wilson gives you a thorough description of all of the principles and techniques related to parametric 3D solid modeling. Extensive use of figures, examples and hands-on exercises illustrate the120-plus commands in Mechanical Desktop 5 that will enable you to master:
Creating practical solid models of parts
Creating fully dimensioned 2D drawings from your 3D models
Combining individual models into assemblies of parts
A CD-ROM containing solutions to the exercises accompanies the book.
John E. Wilson, a columnist for CADENCE magazine since 1991, runs a one-person design and drafting service. While the bulk of his work involves mechanical parts, he has worked in a wide variety of other fields, ranging from water treatment plant piping to control diagrams for electrical motors. John has contributed a regular column to CADENCE since 1993 that focuses on the 3D features of AutoCAD and Mechanical Desktop. He is also the author of the book, Mechanical Desktop 5: Parametric Modeling.
