SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal Tips & Tricks

Have you ever received a part made in another CAD system? Making flat patterns from imported parts can be both troublesome and time consuming. SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal uses a simplified design process to allow a user at any experience level to quickly create sheet metal part designs while saving both time and money.
