Have you ever watched a CADimensions Lunch & Learn or Webinar and wondered “How did he create that assembly?” or “I wish I understood more about using a Bill of Materials?” Or did that lesson in the SOLIDWORKS Essentials class on configurations spark your interest on how you can leverage your designs to be more efficient, but needed some extra material and sample exercises?


Well, SOLIDWORKS recently released an amazing new learning resource for those of you that are passionate about your SOLIDWORKS skills, called MySolidWorks.

For those of you asking “What the heck is MySolidWorks,” I urge you to check out the blog post called Introducing MySolidWorks. MySolidWorks is a new online experience that makes engaging with the SOLIDWORKS community better than ever. MySolidWorks gives you a single place to find insight and expertise from all over the SolidWorks community.

It lets you connect, discover and share anything and everything related to SOLIDWORKS. For those of you that already have an account set up and have been searching for answers, tips, and whitepapers the past few months, I want to point you to a new Learning tab on the home page (highlighted in the top image) that SolidWorks launched back in April.
