How in 2016 do I find how much time I have worked on a part or assembly?
That is not something that has been available in SW without using a 3rd party software. If you search for time tracking software there are a few available for low price.
OK thanks, that is why i couldn't find it. I will check the web for the software.
It's been awhile but I think it was named personal timeclock. You listed projects then simply click on the active project to turn the timer on, click again to pause/end. You could add hourly cost and it would help do the invoices also by keeping track for you. There was also a way to manually over-ride the time in case you forgot to click it "off".
I'm not sure about your job, but this software would be pretty useless for me.
I often have ten files open at any given time.
I may do some modeling, surf the net looking for components, go measure something on the shop floor, answer an email, answer a phone call, come back to my design, decide on a different direction...
May also get interrupted for help on another design, or job that is being built on the shop floor that I designed 6 months ago.
Bottom line, I file may be open in Solidworks all day, but I may only actually do 1 hour of actual modeling. May have more time into the design, although it may have been spent searching online, brainstorming with a coworker, staring at an existing design on the shop floor, or staring at the screen.
Screen time doesn't always equate to work time.
i want too
