NEW! Tech Tip Webinar: SOLIDWORKS Animation
SOLIDWORKS Animation is a tool found under Motion Studies. Animation allows you to add movement to your components along an adjustable time line. You can even apply a motor function to an animation that will allow you to set speed and detailed control over your animated components. This means that you can create point to point movements and SOLIDWORKS Animation interpolates between the 2 positions to create simple life like movement. Animation is great for providing a 3D experience of a SOLIDWORKS model that will help anyone better understand the design intentions and function of your CAD design.

NEW! Tech Tip Webinar: Learn the SOLIDWORKS Task Scheduler
The SOLIDWORKS Task Scheduler is a tool that comes with every installation of SOLIDWORKS. It lets you set up tasks to perform at a future time while the user is away from the computer. For example, if you need to perform a resource-intensive task such as rebuilding a large assembly, you can use SOLIDWORKS Task Scheduler to perform the job at off-peak hours after the user has left for the day. You can schedule a task to be performed only once or on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. SOLIDWORKS Task Scheduler runs separately from the SOLIDWORKS application.

Tech Tip Webinar: Templates and Sheet Formats for Beginners
Are you tired of adding the same settings every time? Well, using a template might be your best option. Templates allow users to start out with selected document properties (types of units, tolerances, fonts, etc.) and pre-defined selections (view, sketches, etc.). When you are within a drawing, there are even more options with sheet formats. The sheet formats alone includes: title block, border, notes, embedded images, custom properties, and anchor Points. This allows the user to have more customizable settings! Throughout this webinar, we will explore methods of configuring your own template and sheet formats.
