Introducing My.SolidWorks

Around the world, there’s a never-ending drive for increased productivity. For design teams, this means constant pressure to create more and better designs in less time.  This isn’t news, of course–it’s the reason SolidWorks was created, and it’s why we improve the product every year, with new capabilities and new ways of creating better designs faster.

Over the years, we’ve found that most users stick with a regular subset of the tools in SolidWorks. For most of you, there are lots of unexplored capabilities and techniques you’ve probably never applied. When faced with the need to use a new feature, a little help can sometimes go a long way in achieving just what you’re looking for in a design.

The SolidWorks community website is a great place to turn for the insights you need to get the most out of SolidWorks.  With discussion forums, blog posts, online help and more, a visit to the SolidWorks community site will usually result in an answer.  And in cases where it doesn’t, it’s easy to pose a question – one of your fellow users can likely offer an advice.

To help build on that spirit of collaboration, we’re happy to announce the official release of My.SolidWorks is a new online experience that makes engaging with the SolidWorks community easier than ever.  My.SolidWorks gives you a single place to find insight and expertise from all over the SolidWorks community. It lets you connect, discover and share anything and everything SolidWorks.
