SolidWorks Corporation provided me with a free copy of “Creating Animations with SolidWorks step-by-step” for review purposes.
Over the course of the past week I have begun to read a newly released book from SolidWorks Corporation called “Creating Animation with SolidWorks step-by-step”.
Before I get started with reviewing the book I want to give you a quick overview of my background with animations in SolidWorks. I have 0 experience other than seeing it in some of the What’s New demos I have attended over the past few years. With this in mind, I am hoping that this book will give me a good understanding of animations from a beginners standpoint.
This week, I got through the 1st chapter of the book which covered all of the basics of animation. This included the many different types of animations that SolidWorks can perform, where you would use each and some brief examples of each kind. This was a good chapter for me as it introduced me to not only what was available but it also got me thinking about where I could use this in a production environment.
This book is over 500 full color pages and also includes a DVD with the files that you need to complete the tutorials at the end of each chapter. This book is very similar to the other training books that you would receive if you were to take a training course at your reseller.
Over the course of the next few weeks I am hoping to be able to continue reading through this book and posting reviews / updates on the book right here on my blog. If you are interested in SolidWorks animations and are looking for a resource to learn more, make sure you continue to check back here for reviews or you can go and buy the book from the SolidWorks store. The price of the book is $89.95 USD. Follow the link below to purchase the book.
