SOLIDWORKS Top Level Assemblies Filter [VIDEO]

Article by Alin Vargatu, CSWE updated October 29, 2012


SOLIDWORKS is all about saving time and reducing or eliminating user’s frustration when performing frequent tasks.

Little things like finding and opening the top level assemblies from a given folder used to be quite time consuming in SOLIDWORKS 2012 or previous releases. Fortunately, SOLIDWORKS 2013 introduces the ability to filter for top assemblies with a simple and elegant addition to the Open File dialog box.

You can also mix the filters now. Maybe you wanted to see only the list of all parts and assemblies, but no drawings. As you will see in this short video, SOLIDWORKS 2013 allows you to do all of these.
