SolidWorks Surfacing and Complex Shape Modeling Bible
Ironically the author hates solidworks so much these days he's ditched it all together and is has taken up blogging about how great solidedge is instead! But yea, solid info in that book if you can get a hold of a copy. It's a pity because when his blog was still about SW he ran surfacing competitions and the like, much like core77 does.

It's not that Matt hates SW as a platform as much as it's about the discourse between Matt and SW HQ and the general direction of things. As software goes the paradigm that SE offers is vastly different that SW when it comes to modeling "parametrics". I would say that SE has better surfacing tools that SW currently, but that may change considering that no new surfacing tools have been added in quite sometime in SW and with Matt onboard with SE they'll only get better surfacing specific features.
wow, its nice to see dimonte guy here! you my friend, have just increase your good karma point
your little tips and trick work around is excellent!
Thanks for the great tutorials, Andrew.
This is definitely the level that I want to be at. I have watched the first 10 videos on youtube, and because I was taught Alias formally at college, I can understand most the principles. However, I need some surfacing tutorials to help bridge the gap as I am not experienced enough with SW surfacing. Also, I am always wondering which keys you are pressing to get the fast workflow. For example, BlenderCookie have all the keystrokes displayed in some of their tutorials and it helps massively to get highly efficient... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfAYtY4KsF4
Could anyone recommend some other SW surfacing tutorials? I have learned the basics already so I am probably looking for intermediate level .
