5 Productive SolidWorks Tips (REV-9)

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

1.You can create a split FeatureManager design tree by grabbing the gray bar at the top of the FeatureManager design tree, and dragging it downward.

2.After you import a file into SolidWorks you can run Import Diagnosis to find any faulty faces or edges. Import Diagnosis is often able to repair these errors, or eliminate them.

3.You can split an arc, circle, ellipse, or spline in a SolidWorks sketch or drawing (sketch entities only). Right-click the entity and select Split Entities.

4.When rotating components with transparent faces, you can improve performance by clearing ‘High quality for dynamic view mode’ in Tools, Options, System Options, Performance.

5.You can have notes linked to drawing views (they will move to maintain their position relative to the drawing view). Double click on a view to focus on it. This keeps the view active, even when the cursor moves over other drawing views.
