SOLIDWORKS Tech Tip: Move Components

How do you move components? Did you know there there are a few more options beyond click and drag to get your desired results? Here’s my challenge to you – I want you to pick a command you use regularly, and the next time you use your chosen command, I want you to experiment. Work the PropertyManager top to bottom and left to right and make sure you’re not missing an option that could be saving you a ton of time. Check out the SOLIDWORKS Help and see what you’ve might have been missing all of this time. Let me know which option you discover (or rediscover) that makes you smile!

To learn more about Inserting and moving components and bottom-up assembly modeling, head over to MySolidWorks and check out the Bottom-up Assembly Modeling training module. As always, thanks for reading and happy learning!
