Solidworks main idea is user to create drawing directly in 3D or solid form. From this solid user can assemble it directly on their workstation checking clashes and functionality of it. SolidWorks is a solid modeler, and utilizes a parametric feature-based approach to create models and assemblies.
SOLIDWORKS Essentials teaches you how to use the SOLIDWORKS mechanical design automation software to build parametric models of parts and assemblies, and how to make drawings of those parts and assemblies.
Prerequisites: Mechanical design experience; experience with the Windows® operating system.
