Store your scribble and notes in Solidworks

My reseller told me that it is rare he see people actually using the Design binder, and checking some Solidworks file I have received, it is true that people are defiantly not writing there life stories in them, (what might be all good), however new Soldiworks users should know its existence(it can easily hide on you).

You can say that the design binder is like one of those old metal filling cabinets, but before we are going into detail, lets make sure it is turned on.

Go to Options=>System Options=>Feature Manager and set the drop down menu next to “Design binder” to “Show”. This should make the Design binder visible at the top of the feature manager tree.

The Journal is customizable, mine is located

C:\Program Files\Solidworks\lang\english=>journal.doc

By placing the cursor where you want your link and go “Insert”=>”Field”

Mastercam do not currently offer anything like this, however there is a company named Verisurf that have made a free add on that lets you store notes inside a file in style with “notepad” it can be downloaded from if you register (You have to provide Sim number to join).
