Hot, hot, hot! Dynamic Undo during Power Trimming

Article by Alin Vargatu, CSWE updated March 24, 2011


Not too long ago, if you would had asked me what is my favourite SolidWorks command, I would have answered “The Power Trim”. It is fast, elegant and intuitive and, until 10 minutes ago, I was sure I knew everything there is to be known about it.

Surprise, surprise! I have just found out a hidden gem inside this command, thanks to Richard Doyle, who brought this little treasure all the way from England.

Have you ever noticed a small red dot appearing during the trimming operation (see picture below)? Can you imagine what is its role?
