2 Foreword The main objective of these tutorials is to give you a kick start using Solidworks. The approach to write this tutorial is based on what is the most important knowledge you should know and what is commonly tool used. You will learn step by step working on it. These tutorials will teach you the basic skills of using Solidworks in your daily design works. Even this tutorials didn t have full explanations of tools that Solidworks have but don t worry you will along the way, as I did.
