We are pleased to announce the availability of updates to the Support, Forums, and Resource Center areas of solidworks.com. Each of the major areas (support, community, and content) have been improved to provide a better experience when you are are looking for answers to questions, or want to learn more about our products or services.


Goals for these updates:

  • Improve and simplify navigation within all the community, support, and content areas of solidworks.com.
  • Unify the experience making it easier to move from one area to another seamlessly and improve discoverability.
  • Better organize our different types of learning content into one location.


Support – The support area was re-organized to make it easier get to product specific information. The sections are organized based on product type. The references and resources for each area have a simpler layout making what you need easier to find.

SolidWorks Forums (Community) – The SolidWorks Forums has been integrated into solidworks.com making it easy to move from the solidworks.com web pages.
