Ever experienced opening a model in SolidWorks and making a mistake?
With the result that most people close the file, without saving it, and then open it again.
To automate this and save time, you can use the Reload command to make the process much faster.
Need this "OOPS button"?
Read on here where you can find the Reload command.
Does it happen regularly to you that dimensions overlap in a drawing?
Sometimes you can't avoid overlapping dimensions - knowing that this is not drawing technically correct. This creates uncertainty when reading the size or it even looks chaotic.
SolidWorks does have a handy function for this, namely "Break Lines", which enables you to avoid overlapping dimensions when dimensioning a drawing.
Read here how to use these "Break Lines".
Do you often use specific views that are not standard in SolidWorks?
Would you find it useful to be able to save these specific views for later reuse in drawings or other models?
This is perfectly possible, because you can create a specific view in a Part or Assembly environment, which you can then use to place into your Drawing or reuse it in another model.
Do you also use Balloons in SolidWorks Drawings to number parts?
Would you like to be able to use these Balloons for other purposes, such as naming parts with their specific name?
That's perfectly possible, because you can link Balloons to Custom Properties.
This can be done in 2 ways, each of which is explained.
Do you often work with certain colors that are specific to the company?
Then in addition to the standard SolidWorks colors, you can also set company colors.
With preset company colors you can easily assign the right color to your design during the modelling process.
Via the following procedure you can set your own company colors and add/remove them.
