Catia V5 Design Fundamentals
Author: Jaecheol Koh
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
This textbook explains how to create models with freeform surfaces using CATIA V5. CATIA is a three dimensional CAD/CAM/CAE software developed by Dassault Syst�ms, France. This textbook is based on CATIA V5-6R2014. Users of earlier releases can use this book with minor modifications. We provide files for exercises via our website. All files are in CATIA V5R20 so readers can open the files using later releases of CATIA V5. It is assumed that readers of this textbook have no prior experience in using CATIA V5 for modeling 3D parts. This textbook is suitable for anyone interested in learning 3D modeling using CATIA V5. Each chapter deals with the major functions of creating 3D features using simple examples and step by step self-paced exercises. Additional drawings of 3D parts are provided at the end of each chapter for further self exercises. The final exercises are expected to be completed by readers who have fully understood the content and completed the exercises in each chapter. Topics covered in this textbook - Chapter 1: Basic component of CATIA V5 software, options and mouse operation. - Chapter 2: Basic step by step modeling process of CATIA V5. - Chapter 3 through 6: Creating sketches and sketch based features. - Chapter 7: Usage of reference elements to create complex 3D geometry. - Chapter 8: Dress-up features such as fillet, chamfer, draft and shell. - Chapter 9: Modification of 3D parts to take advantage of parametric modeling concepts. - Chapter 10: Creating complex 3D parts by creating multiple bodies and applying boolean operations. - Chapter 11: Copying or moving geometrical bodies. - Chapter 12: Advanced functions in creating a solid part such as a rib, stiffener and multi-sections solid. - Chapter 13: Usage of formulas. - Chapter 14 and 15: Constructing assembly structures and creating or modifying 3D parts in the context of assembly. - Chapter 16 and 17: Creating drawings for parts or assemblies.

Theory and practice of tolerances are very important for designing and manufacturing engineering artifacts on a rational basis. Tolerance specifies a degree of "discrepancy" between an idealized object and its physical realization. Such discrepancy inevitably comes into our product realization processes because of practical cost consideration or our inability to fully control manufacturing processes. Major product and production characteristics which are affected by tolerances are product quality and cost. For achieving high precision machines tight tolerance specification is necessary, but this will normally increase product cost. In order to optimally compromise the conflicting requirements of quality and cost, it is essential to take into account of the total product life cycle throughout product planning, design, manufacturing, maintenance and recycling. For example, in order to construct durable products under severe working conditions, low sensitivity of product functionality with respect to tolerances is required. In future, re-use of components or parts will become important, and tolerance synthesis with respect to this aspect will be an interesting future research topics.

An excellent introduction to inviscid airflow using potential theory, this book is a classic in its field. Complete reprint of the revised 1966 edition, which brings the subject up to date.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 13th IFIP WG 5.1 International Conference on Product Lifecycle Management, PLM 2016, held in Columbia, SC, USA, in July 2016. The 57 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 77 submissions. The papers are organized in the following topical sections: knowledge sharing, re-use and preservation; collaborative development architectures; interoperability and systems integration; lean product development and the role of PLM; PLM and innovation; PLM tools; cloud computing and PLM tools; traceability and performance; building information modeling; big data analytics and business intelligence; information lifecycle management; industry 4.0; metrics, standards and regulation; and product, service and systems.
Principles of Yacht Design
Author: Rolf Eliasson, Lars Larsson, Michal Orych
Publisher: A&C Black
Principles of Yacht Design has established itself as the standard book on the subject for practising designers, naval architecture students, discerning boat owners as well as the boatbuilding industry as a whole. The fourth edition is completely revised and expanded and follows the design from scratch of a completely new yacht including all new computer-generated explanatory illustrations. As such, it examines every aspect of the process of yacht and powerboat design. The authors have used a newly designed 41 foot performance cruiser to demonstrate the practical application of yacht design theory. Beginning with the yacht's specifications, the authors examine the vital topics of aero and hydrodynamics and conclude with practical matters such as the layout of the cockpit, deck and cabin, and provide a complete weight calculation for the boat. 'This book is deeply fascinating . . . a must.'

This senior undergraduate level textbook is written for Advanced Manufacturing, Additive Manufacturing, as well as CAD/CAM courses. Its goal is to assist students in colleges and universities, designers, engineers, and professionals interested in using SolidWorks as the design and 3D printing tool for emerging manufacturing technology for practical applications. This textbook will bring a new dimension to SolidWorks by introducing readers to the role of SolidWorks in the relatively new manufacturing paradigm shift, known as 3D-Printing which is based on Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology. This new textbook: Features modeling of complex parts and surfaces Provides a step-by-step tutorial type approach with pictures showing how to model using SolidWorks Offers a user-Friendly approach for the design of parts, assemblies, and drawings, motion-analysis, and FEA topics Includes clarification of connections between SolidWorks and 3D-Printing based on Additive Manufacturing Discusses a clear presentation of Additive Manufacturing for Designers using SolidWorks CAD software "Introduction to SolidWorks: A Comprehensive Guide with Applications in 3D Printing" is written using a hands-on approach which includes a significant number of pictorial descriptions of the steps that a student should follow to model parts, assemble parts, and produce drawings.

Visual computing and descriptive geometry are multidisciplinary fields addressing the handling of images, 3D models, and other computer graphics. These ideas are experiencing a revival due to emergent technologies and applications available to developers. Based in traditional forms of design and architecture, these fields are currently experiencing a bounty of new research based on old principles. The Handbook of Research on Visual Computing and Emerging Geometrical Design Tools seeks to add to this knowledge base by considering these technologies from a designer’s perspective rather than reiterating the principles of computer science. It combines aspects of geometry and representation with emerging tools for CAD, generation, and visualization while addressing the digital heritage of such fields. This book is an invaluable resource for developers, students of both graphic and computer-generated design, researchers, and designers.
