Using This Book
The F1 in Schools™ Design Project helps you learn how to apply 2D and 3D
SolidWorks modeling principles and techniques to create a Race Car assembly
and drawing and apply the SolidWorks SimulationXpress and SolidWorks Flow
Simulation analysis tools.
You will be learning by doing as you complete the lessons in this book:
Q Ability to create a SolidWorks session
Q Understanding of the SolidWorks user interface and toolbars
Q Aptitude to open parts and create a 3D Race Car assembly
Q Create a detailed multi-sheet, multi-view drawing of the Race Car assembly
Q Apply the Measure and Mass tool
Q Apply PhotoWorks
Q Apply Analysis tools: SolidWorks SimulationXpress and SolidWorks Flow
What is SolidWorks Software?
SolidWorks is design automation software. In SolidWorks, you sketch ideas and
experiment with different designs to create 2D and 3D sketches, 3D models, 3D
assemblies, and 2D drawings using the easy to learn Windows® graphical user
SolidWorks is used by students, designers, engineers and other professionals
around the world to produce simple and complex parts, assemblies, and drawings.
Before you begin the F1 in Schools™
Design Project you should review and
complete the following SolidWorks
Tutorials that are integrated in the
SolidWorks software under the Getting
