In this textbook, the author emphasizes on solid modeling techniques that improves the productivity and efficiency of the users. The chapters on this textbook are structured in a pedagogical sequence that makes it very effective in learning the features and capabilities of the software.
Sham Tickoo is a professor of Manufacturing Engineering Technology at Purdue University Calumet. He has been in the education and training since 1981 and joined Purdue University in the year 1987. Since then he has been teaching drafting and design, AutoCAD, AutoLISP, 3ds max, 3ds viz, Mechanical Desktop, Pro/Engineer, Autodesk Inventor, etc. Prof. Tickoo is also one of the best known authors of CAD/CAM books in the world market. He has authored around 60 books, including the updates, on the latest CAD/CAM technology. He is one of the very few authors in the world whose books are translated and sold in the countries like Italy, China, Philippines, and Russia. In addition to his academic career, he has also been employed as a design engineering, quality control engineer, software developer, and has also worked as a consultant for a number of companies in US and Canada. Prof. Tickoo has also developed a software package called SMLayout that has been registered by Autodesk Inc. as a third party software product. This software package is currently being used by some companies in Canada, United States and Columbia. SMLayout is written in the AutoLISP programming language. It generates flat layout drawing of some complicated geometric shapes like transitions, cones, conecylinder intersections, spherecylinder intersections, and cylindercylinder intersections. This software package addresses the needs of steel fabricators and manufacturers of sheet metal products. The programs also provide a dimensioning option for automatic dimensioning of the drawing.
