    How to get SolidCAM menu back in SW2015

    Chris B.

      Hi All,

       

      2014 had SolidCAM menu at top

      2015 puts it under Tools -> SolidCam

       

      Anybody know how / if you can put it back?

          This is an intentional change of SolidWorks in SolidWorks 2015, it's now moved to the pulldown menu tools, than SolidCAM.

            Hi Chris,

             

            Same over here. Our User screamed out loud as they saw it.

            We have an own Addin and some more where we need to go to the menu (Pascam Woodworks and Bea...).

            But ther is one question our var and solidworks couldn't give me an answer:

            Why the hell are all Addin in the Tools-Menu but EnterprisePDM still has it's own?!

            Same is the rest of the integration (Click on a Part and so on...), they made the userinterface worse against the ui before....

             

            Regards, Carsten

              Thumbs down SolidWorks.  Why create an extra mouse click every time???

              Especially with how wide the monitors are these days - we're not exactly cramped for horizontal space.

               

               

              Hmm... sometimes these are a business benefit vs user benefit scenario.

              Perhaps Dassault wants everybody to see Enterprise PDM at the top of their screen, since that's a Dassault product.  But they want to keep SolidCAM (and other 3rd part add-ins) hidden.
