“I’d like to be slower, inconsistent, and less productive in SOLIDWORKS.”
Nobody says that, right? Of course not! You’d like to be more productive, in fact. And you've got a vague sense that there are tools in SOLIDWORKS that might help you with this… and as soon as you put out all the fires and get some spare free time at work, you’re going to look into this. But that day never comes, it seems.
From an end-user perspective, you would indeed like to customize SOLIDWORKS to your liking. You’d like a better handle on how to create keyboard and menu shortcuts, and locating the myriad of support files and templates you rely on every day. From a CAD Manager perspective, you’d like a better understanding of the local changes your users can make, and you’d also like to know how to create, standardize and deploy such settings across your user base.
Because that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? Increased efficiency and productivity? Saving time and money?
This is exactly what I’ll be discussing at our Engineer 3D! Conference at the Hyatt in Milwaukee on April 14th and 15th. My presentation is called “Customizing SOLIDWORKS” and will take place at 9:45 AM on Tuesday the 14th. See my other presentations and our full agenda here.
