Description

This is the second part of a four part series that covers discussion of computer design tools throughout the design process. Through this book, the reader will...

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

Key Features

  • Provides a comprehensive and thorough coverage of essential elements for product manufacturing and cost estimating using the computer aided engineering paradigm
  • Covers CAD/CAE in virtual manufacturing, tool path generation, rapid prototyping, and cost estimating; each chapter includes both analytical methods and computer-aided design methods, reflecting the use of modern computational tools in engineering design and practice
  • A case study and tutorial example at the end of each chapter provides hands-on practice in implementing off-the-shelf computer design tools
  • Provides two projects at the end of the book showing the use of Pro/ENGINEER® and SolidWorks® to implement concepts discussed in the book

Readership

Mechanical, Aerospace, and Industrial Engineers studying design. Engineers interested in learning computer design tools such as ProEngineer and SolidWorks in the context of the design process. Senior and first-year graduate engineering students in Mechanical, Aerospace, Industrial, and Materials Engineering
