The SolidNetwork Licence Manager (SNL) adds significant flexibility to the way organisations can use their SOLIDWORKS licences, but this flexibility can be customised and extended further using the SNL options file.
An introduction to how individual parameters in derived configurations are linked to changes made in the parent configs, except for specific items.
If you ever need to share SOLIDWORKS models with members of an extended team who don’t use SOLIDWORKS themselves, don’t panic. SOLIDWORKS offers a free and easy solution for this in the form of eDrawings Viewer.
When you are designing components that need to fit together, it is sometimes difficult to understand what shape they need to be. The standard approach is adding the components into an assembly and then measuring one against another to understand if what you have produced will fit together. Let’s take a look at how it should be done.
