Solidworks 2010 Tutorials Beginner

  1. 1. ForewordThe main objective of these tutorials is to give you a kick start using SolidWorks. The approach towrite this tutorial is based on what is the most important knowledge you should know and what iscommonly tool used. You will learn step by step by working on it. These tutorials will teach youthe basic skills of using Solidworks in your daily design works. Even this tutorials didn’t have fullexplanations of tools that Solidworks have but don’t worry you will master it along the way, as Idid.If you have any questions about these tutorials, drop your mail tosupport@solidworkstutorials.comSolidworks 2010 Tutorials: Beginnerhttp://www.solidworkstutorials.com©2010 solidworkstutorials.com , All rights reserved.This publication is copyright under the solidworkstutorials.comAll rights reserved.
