Matt Lombard has a well known SolidWorks blogger, known for a distinct inability to pull his punches. He’s also a prolific author and his latest tome is out for your surface modelling joy. Having been writing about this technology for the last 45 years combined, we’re in awe of anyone that has the ability to sit and write that shear amount of content - personally, it gives me the fear.

In Matt’s words:

This book explains some of the elementary concepts of surfacing, and goes on to talk about tools and techniques. The last part of the book has several tutorials done in a conversational style, where I go through how I modeled parts, including how the decisions were made to use various features. This is not just a “do this do that” tutorial where you get the instructions to make a complex shape but never understand why you would do this or do that.

The book is $50, which includes shipping in the US. The rest of the payment and shipping details available here.


...and Matt is definitely a character and force to be reckoned with, and I hear he makes a mean sandwich. buy the book, it $31.49 at amAzon. late.<BR><BR>-Josh

Most people hate cghnae because it is uncomfortable. Is the Internet bad? No. Are newspapers posted online bad? No. In fact, its probably better! Kill fewer trees for paper!The charging money issue is valid and complex. the problem is that most people pay for internet, so should they get the ‘online paper’ for free? I’m sure people would pay for year subscriptions to certain magazines like stock market stuff and financial magazines, but I dont think the majority of people would pay and extra 50 cents for a paper online.The cool thing about the Internet is that more people can get. Even if you do not have Internet or a computer, there are many places where you can go to use one. The libraries, universities, and places of work are all feasible places to get access to ‘news papers’ or ‘news sites’. The internet is also Instant. No mailing or delivering.I shop on Amazon a lot and they have this thing called a Kindle. I think this will become more and more popular because you can get full newspapers and books, anywhere, anytime. It is small and can hold MANY articles and books.About half way through the interview they talked about shorter articles dominating the web-papers. Good because it cuts the fat. Bad because it lacks detail. I guess we’ll see.The point is that, times cghnae, technology cghnaes, and people and society have to cghnae with it. Societal evolution can be slow and sometimes it take multiple generations for people to accept something new.The biggest fear, is that people wont get the news they want. But the news is out there, people might just have to take a different path to get it.
