We are a custom millwork shop, producing cabinets, doors, windows, etc. We have just purchased solidworks and are trying to make the transfer from auto cad. I myself have no cad experience. We know what the software is capable of in regards to cutlist, exploded views, and weldments, but are having some trouble getting started and applying it to our methods. The training we have had was very helpful but was a but generic in actual application to our industry. It seemed to be directed more towards use in metal or platics manufacturing than what we do. I know my questions seem to be very broad, but I am kind of lost here and could use any direction anyone has to offer. We want to produce all of our cutlist and detail work in solid works for doors, cabinets, windows, mantles.
