5 Productive SolidWorks Tips (REV-14)

5 SolidWorks Tips that may possible be helpful kick starting your 3D day.

1.When editing a part in an assembly, you can force the other components to become transparent, making it easier to select the part to be edited. Right-click components and select Change Transparency.

2.Sketch relations (suppressed or unsuppressed) can be controlled on a per configuration basis

3.Feature definitions (like end conditions: Blind, up to surface, etc.) can be controlled on a per configuration basis.

4.You can check the degree of curvature in a spline. Right-click the spline and select ‘Show curvature.’ If the degree of curvature is too small or to large for the spline, you can change the display by selecting ‘Modify Curvature Scale’ on the same menu.

5.You can select the faces, edges and vertices that are created by section views created in a SolidWorks part or assembly. You can not open a sketch on the newly created faces.
