    design library

    Randy McCreight

      Hello. First post here. I installed SW2016 Student edition last fall as allowed by my SW course. My install should be good until  mid-2017. We didn't use the Design Library. I am now pursuing various online tutorials, one of which requires addition of a sheetmetal feature from the D/L, but I cannot find any trace of the D/L on my downloads or hard drive. I understand how to make a link to the D/L via the Options menu.


      Should the D/L be downloaded and installed with the Student Edition? Thanks.

          Search for the "Design Library" in the installed drive and then map the path under File Locations in Tools > Options.


          Mine is located here: C:\ProgramData\SolidWorks\SOLIDWORKS 2017\design library (path on your system may be different)


          Please note that ProgramData folder is a hidden folder so make sure you set the folder option to show the hidden files.
