When you are dealing with such a complex and function rich software like SOLIDWORKS, it’s easy for a few hidden features to slip through the cracks. Although some of these offer only minor help to your day-to-day design work, some of them can have a major impact both now and in the future. One of these hidden gems many overlook is called the Enhancement Request. Maybe you have created your own hotkey that takes a 10-step process down to one and you wanted to share it with the world?
