A Hands-On Introduction to SOLIDWORKS 2023 - Kirstie Plantenberg Cover Art

A Hands-On Introduction to SOLIDWORKS 2023

A Hands-On Introduction to SOLIDWORKS 2023 by Kirstie Plantenberg

• Intended for users completely new to SOLIDWORKS • Designed to complement an engineering graphics course • Utilizes many real-life parts and assemblies SOLIDWORKS is the industry standard in 3D parametric modeling software, making it an essential tool for anyone going into a wide variety of engineering and design industries. Specifically written for those who are new to SOLIDWORKS, A Hands-On Introduction to SOLIDWORKS 2023 allows you to relax and learn as you follow an expert in SOLIDWORKS through the basics of the software to its more in-depth capabilities. Formerly called Project Based SOLIDWORKS, this revised edition includes new and expanded tutorials. This book works perfectly for a freshman design class or as a companion text to an engineering graphics textbook. Each tutorial in the book teaches you how to use engineering graphics concepts while modeling real-world parts and assemblies. Learn how to model parts, configurations, create part prints, and assembly drawings. As you become more comfortable with SOLIDWORKS, later chapters introduce FEA, how to create more complex solid geometries with parametric modeling, apply tolerances, and use advanced and mechanical mates. Important commands and features are highlighted and defined in each chapter to help you become familiar with them. Some problems are purposely left open ended to simulate real life design situations; therefore, more than one solution is possible. After completing all the tutorials in this book, you will be able to accurately design moderately difficult parts and assemblies and have a firm foundation in SOLIDWORKS. Why this book? Instructors and learners will appreciate the thoughtful and well-organized layout of A Hands-On Introduction to SOLIDWORKS 2023. Every chapter begins with the prerequisites needed to complete the tutorials found in the chapter and a list of what you will learn. You do not necessarily need to complete the tutorials within the book in order, but make sure that you have the pre-requisite knowledge before you begin. Practice modeling problems and/or quiz problems at the end of each chapter offer an extra challenge and let you practice your newfound skills. Working with realistic part models and assemblies means that questions and problems might arise as they would when you are working on your real-life projects. The author anticipates these questions and how to address them. For example, if you are in the wrong standard or not on the correct layer, or an unexpected window appears on the screen, tips and notes quickly remedy the issue. Information on new commands or steps appear at the beginning of each chapter. They include definitions of new features and concepts and images of how they look on the screen. Everything is clearly labeled for easy identification. Throughout the book, readers are referred to the appropriate section of the chapter for more information on the command when needed. A command index at the back of the book lists where each command can be found for easy reference at any time. Topics covered • Part modeling • Part configurations • Assembly • Static FEA • Part Prints • Assembly drawings • Fasteners • Tolerancing • Parametric Modeling • 3D-sketches • Rendering Table of Contents 1.   Basic Part Modeling in SOLIDWORKS 2.   Basic Drawings in SOLIDWORKS 3.   Intermediate Part Modeling in SOLIDWORKS 4.   Intermediate Drawings in SOLIDWORKS 5.   Configurations in SOLIDWORKS 6.   Static FEA in SOLIDWORKS 7.   Basic Assemblies in SOLIDWORKS 8.   Assembly Drawings in SOLIDWORKS 9.   Advanced Part Modeling in SOLIDWORKS 10.

AutoCAD 2024 for the Interior Designer AutoCAD for Mac and PC by Dean Muccio

• No prior AutoCAD experience is required • Created specifically for interior designers and classroom use • Uses interior space planning tutorials • Focused around a hotel suite project • Covers AutoCAD for both Macs and PCs Focused around a hotel suite project, AutoCAD 2024 for the Interior Designer provides the Interior Design student with a non-intimidating, tutorial based approach to learning the AutoCAD program. It accomplishes this by taking students that have no computer design experience from simple commands to complete projects in this single-semester sized text. This well organized and progressive approach to learning AutoCAD sets this text apart from others. To support all users, this book covers AutoCAD for both Macs and PCs. The emphasis of this book is on easy to understand descriptions and instructions, allowing the non-technical, artistic, visual learning Interior Design student to quickly get past the fear of using the computer to produce drawings. The focus is entirely on the use of AutoCAD for the Interior Design field and not simply architectural drawings. Chapters alternate between command descriptions, which are organized by a command set category, and tutorials. This allows students to easily refer back to command descriptions without hunting through a tutorial that introduces commands as it progresses. The emphasis is on the practical use of commands using the AutoCAD ribbon workspace, rather than the multiple (and seldom used) command options. Multiple tutorials of the hotel suite, which include floor plan, elevation views, dimensioning, and plotting, provide a practical application of the commands learned in the preceding chapters. Completely dimensioned drawings are provided at the beginning of each tutorial so that the advanced student, or an instructor led class, can complete them without going through the step-by-step process. This textbook is classroom proven, and relevant interior design homework problems are provided.

• Written specifically for interior designers • No previous experience with Autodesk Revit is required • Uses a project based, tutorial style approach • Helps you prepare for the Autodesk Revit Architecture Certification Exam The intent of this book is to provide the interior design student a well-rounded knowledge of Autodesk Revit tools and techniques. These skills can then be applied to enhance professional development in both academia and industry. The overall premise of the book is to help you learn Revit while developing the interior of a two story law office. At the start of the book you are provided an architectural model with established columns, beams, exterior walls, minimal interior walls and roofs in which to work. This allows more emphasis to be placed on interior design rather than primary architectural elements. The chapters' chronology generally follows the typical design process. You will find this book helps you more accurately and efficiently develop your design ideas and skills. The first chapter introduces you to Revit, Building Information Modeling (BIM) and the basics of opening, saving and creating a new project. The second provides a quick introduction to modeling basic elements in Revit including walls, doors, windows and more. This chapter is designed to show you how powerful Revit truly is and to get you excited for the rest of the book. The remainder of the book is spent developing the interior space of the law office with an established space program. You will learn how to view and navigate within the provided 3D architectural model, manage and create materials and develop spaces with walls, doors and windows. Once all the spaces are added to the model, several areas are explored and used as the basis to cover Revit commands and workflows. At the end of this tutorial, you will be able to model floor finishes, ceilings with soffits, casework, custom reception desk, restrooms, furniture and light fixtures.

Designing Sound - Andy Farnell Cover Art

Designing Sound

Designing Sound by Andy Farnell

A practitioner's guide to the basic principles of creating sound effects using easily accessed free software. Designing Sound teaches students and professional sound designers to understand and create sound effects starting from nothing. Its thesis is that any sound can be generated from first principles, guided by analysis and synthesis. The text takes a practitioner's perspective, exploring the basic principles of making ordinary, everyday sounds using an easily accessed free software. Readers use the Pure Data (Pd) language to construct sound objects, which are more flexible and useful than recordings. Sound is considered as a process, rather than as data—an approach sometimes known as “procedural audio.” Procedural sound is a living sound effect that can run as computer code and be changed in real time according to unpredictable events. Applications include video games, film, animation, and media in which sound is part of an interactive process. The book takes a practical, systematic approach to the subject, teaching by example and providing background information that offers a firm theoretical context for its pragmatic stance. [Many of the examples follow a pattern, beginning with a discussion of the nature and physics of a sound, proceeding through the development of models and the implementation of examples, to the final step of producing a Pure Data program for the desired sound. Different synthesis methods are discussed, analyzed, and refined throughout.] After mastering the techniques presented in Designing Sound , students will be able to build their own sound objects for use in interactive applications and other projects

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC Book for Digital Photographers, The by Scott Kelby

Since Lightroom 1.0 first launched, Scott’s Kelby’s The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers has been the world’s #1 bestselling Lightroom book (it has been translated into a dozen different languages), and in this latest version for Lightroom 6, Scott uses his same award-winning, step-by-step, plain-English style and layout to make learning Lightroom easy and fun. Scott doesn’t just show you which sliders do what (every Lightroom book will do that). Instead, by using the following three simple, yet brilliant, techniques that make it just an incredible learning tool, this book shows you how to create your own photography workflow using Lightroom: • Throughout the book, Scott shares his own personal settings and studio-tested techniques. Each year he trains thousands of Lightroom users at his live seminars and through that he’s learned what really works, what doesn’t, and he tells you flat out which techniques work best, which to avoid, and why. • The entire book is laid out in a real workflow order with everything step by step, so you can begin using Lightroom like a pro from the start. • What really sets this book apart is the last chapter. This is where Scott dramatically answers his #1 most-asked Lightroom question, which is: “Exactly what order am I supposed to do things in, and where does Photoshop fit in?” You’ll see Scott’s entire start-to-finish Lightroom 6 workflow and learn how to incorporate it into your own workflow. • Plus, this book includes a downloadable collection of some of the hottest Lightroom Develop module presets to give you a bunch of amazing effects with just one click! Scott knows firsthand the challenges today’s digital photographers are facing, and what they want to learn next to make their workflow faster, easier, and more fun. He has incorporated all of that into this major update for Lightroom 6. It’s the first and only book to bring the whole process together in such a clear, concise, and visual way. Plus, the book includes a special chapter on integrating Adobe Photoshop seamlessly right into your workflow, and you’ll learn some of Scott’s latest Photoshop portrait retouching techniques and special effects, which take this book to a whole new level. There is no faster, more straight to the point, or more fun way to learn Lightroom than with this groundbreaking book.
