    What other software tools/utilities do you use everyday alongside SolidWorks?

    Duncan Gillis

      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 - http://getgreenshot.org/

      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?
