    Description

    e-Design is the first book to integrate discussion of computer design tools throughout the design process. Through this book, the reader will understand...

    • Basic design principles and all-digital design paradigms.
    • CAD/CAE/CAM tools available for various design related tasks.
    • How to put an integrated system together to conduct All-Digital Design (ADD).
    • Industrial practices in employing ADD and tools for product development.

    Key Features

    • Provides a comprehensive and thorough coverage on essential elements for practicing all-digital design (ADD)
    • Covers CAD/CAE methods throughout the design process, including solid modelling, performance simulation, reliability, manufacturing, cost estimates and rapid prototyping
    • Discusses CAD/CAE/CAM/RP/CNC tools and data integration for support of the all-digital design process
    • Reviews off-the-shelf tools for support of modelling, simulations, manufacturing, and product data management
    • Provides tutorial type projects using ProENGINEER and SolidWorks for readers to exercise design examples and gain hands-on experience
    • A series of running examples throughout the book illustrate the practical use of the ADD paradigm and tools
