For courses where SolidWorks is used. Basing its instruction on the design of a pizza cutter, this text walks you through techniques in modeling, assembly, and creation of working drawings moving from basic to more advanced design techniques. The text is heavily illustrated with screen captures and sample drawings and includes end-of-chapter modeling problems for further practice.
