I found this article and peaked my curiosity.   What's your go-to music while you work? Do you use a streaming service?   What Do Engineers Listen to While They Work? | Design News

I bought a new laptop with UHD display (3840 x 2160), but it does not seem to work very well with SW. SW becomes really slow and difficult to operate with. I have tried to change the PC resolution, SW compatibility settings, but none of them work.   Could anyone give me any advice about how to fix this problem? The SW I am using is 2017-2018… (Show more)

When creating a new part or asm is there a way to make the "default" config name show as the file name with out manually renaming?  By default have the first config name be the file name instead of the default "Default".

I can see the tree and when I mouse over the screen the mouse acts like there is a part there. It will select edges and features. I've already tried uninstalling and reinstalling again… (Show more)

Say I am given 3D matrices corresponding to different components in a Solidworks model (e.g. via .txt/excel/labview), is there a way to feed that data in real time to corresponding components in Solidworks? I understand this is possible with the Solidworks motion add-in however would I be able to achieve something similar with just my Solidworks… (Show more)

Often SolidWorks, as well as others, inadvertently admit that they don't have a clue regarding the design process.  They continue to advertise how "fast" you can drive their software.    This happened last night when I had a discussion with someone using AutoCAD 3D.  I told them it was a wast of their time and they said "just try to keep up with… (Show more)

Hello, as some of you know, there is a dial on the Logitech Craft keyboard. Anybody succeed in using the dial to replace some functions of SW? Does it work well? Thanks.

For years I have been looking for a program similar to the 2D sketch portion of SolidWorks. Back in the 90s, Intergraph briefly came out with a product called Imagineer Technical. This program was a simplified version of SolidEdge sketch and it was great, but it flopped apparently.   The reason I have needed this is to aid field salesmen who are… (Show more)

Sometimes you just want to share a picture of your pets (Whatever you may call them: Furry Friends, Fur-kids, Interns, and so on.) We have a great "landing area" for off-topic posts, but it would be really easy for the great pictures to get lost with everything else in "Kitty Land" - (The "Kitty Dump" - Watercooler - Trash it Here - Food For… (Show more)
