I guess it's time to consolidate my whining so I don't poison the forum Add your experience. Teach me how to use SolidWorks.   Hopefully I'll learn something and help other learn something. Also help SolidWorks to be more user friendly. And get SolidWorks to work like Inventor.

Is there a way to undock the design tree, and move it to monitor #2 in SW 2011? I'm able to undock the command, and property managers, but not the design tree.

Hi,   This is not a question but more of a user interface/user experience observation that I wanted to share. I won't be surprised if this already exist as a topic but I wanted to mention how cool it will be to have the properties of sketches and features pop up near the cursor as the Shortcut Bars do. With bigger screens, mouse travel to the… (Show more)

So, remember the old Nintendo, you put the cartridge in, turn on the system and your in the game?   From a programming/coding/software perspective, what would it take for solidworks to operate like that?  no OS, no antivirus bs, no browsers, etc.... just turn it on, and your in the solidworks manufacturing environment with direct access to bare… (Show more)
