    SOLIDWORKS Drawing Templates [UPDATED]

    December 4, 2019

    The set of standards used for drawing and dimensioning your parts in SOLIDWORKS is known as the Drawing Template, similar to Part and Assembly templates.

    Can you run SOLIDWORKS on a virtual machine? Yes! You absolutely can. This is a stark contrast to the past environment for SOLIDWORKS. In the past, SOLIDWORKS was explicitly not supported on virtual machines and there weren't any options to run a SOLIDWORKS product on a web browser either. Imagine that, a world where SOLIDWORKS couldn’t run on a virtual machine or in a web browser. But things have changed. So what’s different now? Let’s take a look back and learn from the past.
