A few weeks ago, I was teaching an advanced class with some skilled users. There were new features they learned about, but most items we covered were refresher for them. As we continued through the class, I wanted to make sure there was value added to the course, so I have them some productivity tool tips that they might not have seen before. As I caught them writing every single tip down, it was clear I had just blown their minds. Digging into SOLIDWORKS, there are features that everyone knows because it’s visually on the interface, but certain tools are hidden and underutilized. The users had never seen these before (for the most part) and instantly knew it was going to help them out. Here are some of the cool and useful tools I shared with my class, and will hopefully make your modeling life much easier.
