Have been thinking about starting this discussion for a while with our local user group, but why not start it on the forums!


The question is what other software tools/utilities do you use everyday in your normal workflow?  Mainly looking for the free ones, or that have free versions to start with.


I currently use the following almost daily:


#TASK - Sharp Task - #TASK

This program allows you to batch run macro's in SolidWorks.


Greenshot -

Used for screenshots and communicating with others


Bulk Rename Utility - Introduction - Bulk Rename Utility

Used to modify files in windows explorer - mainly for files other than SolidWorks


Ditto - Ditto clipboard manager

Extension to the standard windows clipboard


xmind - XMind: The Most Popular Mind Mapping Software on The Planet.

Mind mapping software


what ones do you use?
