Day 2: Tech Tips and Webinars | 12 Days of Subscriptmas Blogs

On the second day of Subscriptmas, we present two special days to you, Tech T!p Tuesdays and Webinar Wednesdays. Tech T!p Tuesdays We are happy to introduce to you a new service that we officially launched at our SOLIDWORKS 2017 grand launch event in October. mk_techtiplogo1Every Tuesday of the month, our technical team will be sharing a useful technical tip that will make your design process more fun and efficient. In an effort to stay connected with you, the tips will be shared on our social media accounts. Everyone is invited to follow us on our social media so you never miss our tech tips, blogs, news, events and promotions! Some of the tips that have been shared, that are useful for SOLIDWORKS users are:
  1. Dimension to the tangent of an arc or circle (min/max condition) – Hold down Shift while using Smart Dimension
  2. Change spline controls symmetrically – Hold down Alt while dragging a spline control arrow
  3. Flip the direction of a formed feature (Sheet metal) – Click Tab while dragging the feature to a face
  4. Motion Manager – Use Ctrl and Alt keys to copy and move multiple keys in the motion manager
  5. Move an annotation independently in a group – Hold down Alt and drag annotation
