How do you rotate components during insert? Did you know there there is an an awesome checkbox in the Insert Component PropertyManager to help? 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!
