IntroductionSolidSolutions has recently welcomed another 11 Technical Interns to the team, they are currently being put through a 12 week induction and as part of this they’ll be blogging about what they’ve learned. Having recently sat on the SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal training course we asked our Sheffield Trio – Will, Alex & Jordan – to explain how to turn imported files into fully functional SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal. So let’s start with Alex’s explanation of the Convert to Sheet Metal tool. Convert

Engineering Hires With the economy picking up in the Gulf Coast region as well as in other parts of the country, we’ve received many questions from companies that use SOLIDWORKS, wanting to know how to find and hire the right engineers and designers to feed their growing demand. SOLIDWORKS, like any other tool, is only as good as the person using it. So, how do you know the engineer standing in front of you, resume in hand, is the right person to maximize the return on your SOLIDWORKS investment
