What You Will Learn

You may know several of these SOLIDWORKS tips and tricks. In fact, I hope you do – learning 50 new tricks in one hour will be difficult to remember them all. However, I’m confident that even the most seasoned users will pick up a few new tricks. Here are a few to pique your interest:

  • Did you know you can hold Ctrl and click on items in the Mirror Components command to toggle the “Create Opposite Hand Version” option without having to go to the button each time?
  • Did you know you can choose how other components/bodies are displayed when using the Isolate Component/Isolate Bodies command?
  • Did you know of the “Select Previous” command, for when you’re making multiple selections and accidentally deselect them all and have to start again?
  • Did you know you can hold Ctrl and drag a feature to make a copy of it? Did you know that was around in 1997? Did you know it also works from one part to another?
