SolidWorks For Greater Productivity
March 29, 2007
Reviewer: Wayne Tiffany (President of Kansas City SolidWorks User Group)
"Customizing SolidWorks" is a great book for a
beginner as it exposes you to lots of areas that you can change to suit your
style of working. Once you know about them, you can then decide what you want to
change, and what you want to learn more about.
But it's also a good read for advanced users, since there will invariably be a
nugget or two that will settle out. When I read it, I found a few things that
piqued my curiosity enough to cause me to do a bit of exploring.
So, grab a cup of coffee and the easy chair, and enjoy.
