Hot, hot, hot! Dynamic Undo during Power Trimming

Article by Alin Vargatu, CSWE created/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?

Just in case you were unable to discover the answer on your own, I prepared a short video showing the whole dynamic undo procedure.
