So, you’ve just invested in a seat of SolidWorks and a SolidBox workstation to design the products of the future. You turn on your machine for the first time and activate your license of SolidWorks. Now what? For newer users, you take what you learned in your SolidWorks Essentials course and start modeling. However, SolidWorks out of the box probably isn’t set up for your specific modeling habits, and you might find yourself spending more time searching for tools than using them.
Seasoned veterans are guilty of this as well. We just get used to a way of operating and forget to even check if there is a better, faster way. Getting familiar with the SolidWorks User Interface (UI) and how it can help you save time is rarely discussed, but it’s one of the easiest ways to speed up your modeling.
In this Three Part video, Matt Perez breaks down each aspect of the SolidWorks UI, and explains how to get the most out of each option. Click the links below to learn everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the SolidWorks UI, and access your tools faster.
