I love visuals in place of linear data, vis-à-vis spreadsheets. Even though Excel is actually a piece of software Microsoft nailed, I still find myself wanting to see my data in something more than rows and columns, especially at 4 in the afternoon when it’s easy to get cross-eyed. I’ve come across countless organizations where Excel is used rampantly and as the habitual default – even when there are professional tools available to them. With all of the PDM conversations I’ve had, I’ve started

You are able to use the display settings in SOLIDWORKS to provide greater flexibility when applying different appearances, decals and display modes. This allows the user to manipulate the way that the model is referenced in either drawings, or visual renders. Along with appearances (colours/decals), you also have the ability to change the visibility, display mode and transparency of components within your model. Linking these values within different display states allows you to focus on

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?

Does an engineer share workloads or work concurrently in a team? My observation is that most engineers are PART of teams, but don’t necessarily WORK in teams.

The process is still very sequential at many companies out there and most of the engineers I
