• The perfect follow up to SOLIDWORKS Intermediate Skills 
• Uses a step by step tutorial approach with real world projects 
• Comprehensive coverage of advanced SOLIDWORKS tools and techniques 
• Covers parts, surfaces, SimulationXpress, sheet metal, top-down assemblies and core and cavity molds 
• Features a quick reference guide and a Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional practice exam 

SOLIDWORKS 2017 Advanced Techniques picks up where SOLIDWORKS 2017 Intermediate Skills leaves off. Its aim is to take you from an intermediate user with a basic understanding of SOLIDWORKS and modeling techniques to an advanced user capable of creating complex models and able to use the advanced tools provided by SOLIDWORKS. The text covers parts, surfaces, SimulationXpress, sheet metal, top-down assemblies and core and cavity molds. 

Every lesson and exercise in this book was created based on real world projects. Each of these projects have been broken down and developed into easy and comprehensible steps. Furthermore, at the end of every chapter there are self test questionnaires to ensure that you have gained sufficient knowledge from each section before moving on to more advanced lessons. This book takes the approach that in order to understand SOLIDWORKS, inside and out, you should create everything from the beginning and take it step by step. 

Who this book is for 

This book is for the intermediate to advanced user who has already completed the SOLIDWORKS Basic Tools book and may have also completed the SOLIDWORKS Intermediate Skills book. People who are very familiar with SOLIDWORKS and its add ins will also find this book to be a valuable resource.
