    SolidWorks EDU: Top Ten Tips and Tricks

    Ryan Koehler

      Hello all,


      I am looking to compile a list of tips and tricks that can help students learn and navigate Solidworks. These can be anything from modeling tips to creative ways you learned SolidWorks.


      Example 1: "When in doubt, righ-click"

      Example 2: Sometimes beginners get lost as to whether they are editing a part or sketch so I tell them,"Press the "s" key to check if you are editing a part or sketch. If the icons are sketch entities then you are in a sketch and so on."


      Any and all suggestions will be helpful.
