Feel free to ask away here. You won't find a larger response base anywhere else. Newbie questions are welcome.
I agree with the response from Charles. But might I also suggest that when you have a question, do a quick search on the forums because that question may already be answered. Also keep in mind that a lot of folks will not be at work during that time so the response time may not be quite as good as normal.
That being said, enjoy your time learning - I think you will be well pleased with the time you put in.
I too am in agreement with Charles and Wayne in that you can ask questions freely
in this forum. There is a wealth of talent and knowledge here. And the questions
you might feel are stupid, ask them...in my opinion the dumbest questions are the
one not asked. But like Wayne said, do a search of your question first because the
answer may already be here.
Oh, and welcome to Solidworks and this forum.
As what has already been said I agree, I'm an old MicroCadam/Helix user. Feel free to call me, but what you have learned in MC/H won't help a lot with SW.
Welcome to SW forums JP.
Yes I agree with what my friends Charles and Wayne has said. This is a great forum to learn and make friends
I would request you to please go through these posts before putting up any questions:
Forum Posting (highlights on how to use forum and ask questions)
Marking A Post As Being The Correct Answer (let other knows if your issue has been resolved and what was the solution)
Thanks for the welcome guys. I'll try not to ask those old Q's that have already been answered numerous times!
As you can see those posts were from the Ol' timers (haha!) and I couldn't agree with them more, but being a bit of a newbie myself I thought I'd put my 2 cents in. I started using SW around August and had used ProE for about 15 years. I am SO grateful for this forum! Very quick response time, lots of good brains and experience and one (Scott) who has also worked in ProE so he can relate to some specific issues. As for SW itself I have found it easy to learn and use and frankly, a but fun! I do contract work and work from so am on my own and therefore depend very much on this forum.
Welcome and my guess is we'll be seeing you...
Happy Holiday Season to you!
p.s. do use the search, I just came on here to post a ?? but searched and found my answer
You mentioned the tutorials in your original post. I think you'll find them very helpful for learning the basics.
