Do the Tutorials that come with SolidWorks, also there's a PDF called "Introducing SolidWorks" that is very helpful; it's located on the help menu.
I would also recommend using YouTube as a resource for entry level tutorials.
thank you... yes so far youtube has been helping me alot !!
Thanks for the input...
I googled "parametric sketching in SolidWorks" and apparently there is a sketching book out for Solidworks.. see link below. I've purchased a copy so we'll see how it goes.
Thanks for the info on Igetit and SolidProfessor, I will look into it.
