First of all hi to the community.

We are a small business that has just purchased SolidWorks. Ihave done quite a bit of 3D CAD but using TurboCAD Pro, so SW is abig change.

We design fairly simple aluminum extrusions (max dimension150mm) and plastic mouldings (current max dimension 100mm.Assemblies are simple.

At present we are using 1280x1024 monitors - but I realize thatthat is not enough. We have our eyes on a Dell model, which is20" and has 1680 x 1050 resolution. Is that likely to bereasonable? Given that (or any other size you recommend what othermonitor features are likely to be essential?
