Here are a few tricks that every engineer should know about the rotation functions in SOLIDWORKS. We’ll take a look at steps to take that will help you be as efficient as possible when handling your model in 3D space. We’ll start by clicking and holding down the middle button to rotate an assembly, or part, and finish by taking a look at the rotating functions and formatting text within a design.

Options when Rendering an Image in SOLIDWORKS
May 28, 2021
There are a number of different ways to render an image in SOLIDWORKS. The options to render an image will depend on which version you have and which graphics card you are using. To get started, we’ll start with the options available in SOLIDWORKS Standard and move our way up to see what is available for SOLIDWORKS Professional and SOLIDWORKS Premium. We’ll be using the Raspberry Pi, a single-board computer, as an example. Let’s dive in!

May 14, 2021
The updated mirroring functionality in SOLIDWORKS 2018 makes adding symmetry to your 2D and 3D sketches a breeze and facilitates fully capturing your design intent. There are many places where you can use the Mirror function, so let’s dive in and take a look at how to apply this powerful and time-saving tool.
Working with the Autotrace Feature in SOLIDWORKS
April 30, 2021
The Autotrace feature allows you to automatically trace around a sketch picture that has been imported into SOLIDWORKS. This is a great way to quickly recreate a logo or organic shape. The image can then be used in features such as extrudes and sweeps. Let’s take a look at how to enable this tool and how to apply it to an image within your project.

Taking measurements is common practice when modeling in SOLIDWORKS. This blog goes over the options that are available so you can leverage them into your everyday workflow. Let's take a look!
Revisioning in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform
March 12, 2021
In this video tech tip, Matt Kokoski covers three different methods when creating revisions inside of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. The first method explains Saving with Options. The second method demonstrates how to add a new revision inside of the SOLIDWORKS window, and the third shows you how to add a new revisions inside of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform along with the benefits of using this method. Matt will also explain the branch and merging feature inside of the collaborative lifecycle application. Let's take a look in more detail.
