Posting your Ideas to the SOLIDWORKS World 2016 Top Ten List

Thank you to everyone that has visited the SOLIDWORKS World 2016 Top Ten List and created ideas so far.  With more ideas coming in each day, we want to take the time to mention something about idea creation and presentation.  If you have an idea for an enhancement, submit it in the Ideas forum. Fellow SOLIDWORKS users can view, comment, and eventually vote on your idea!  All ideas are considered by the development team, but the top ten will be presented at SOLIDWORKS WORLD in February 2016. To submit an idea or view already submitted ideas, head to the SOLIDWORKS World 2016 Top Ten List. It’s a great way to get your idea out there and let us know how to improve the software for you.
Some tips on posting:

  1. When you’re adding an idea, make sure that the title of your idea is a complete thought. For example, “Allow for individual upload of Splash Pictures (Loading Pictures)” instead of just entering “Splash Pictures”. This is important so others can immediately understand your idea when they’re voting. It’s also important for any idea that makes it to the main stage Top Ten announcement at SOLIDWORKS World.
  2. Include as much detail as possible in the description of your idea. When needed, consider adding some form of media. See the image below for a reminder on buttons used to add media. By being as specific as possible, more people will be able to understand your idea and vote for it, as well as decrease the amount of duplicate ideas. On the other hand, you want it to be general enough sp that it applies to you and everyone else, so keep that in mind.

Adding media to your ideas

The ideas submitted thus far have been great and we’d like to encourage anyone with ideas about new ways to improve SOLIDWORKS to submit yours too. This is a great way to suggest anything that’s ever made you ask yourself questions like: Why doesn’t it know I want the parts to be mated like that? This drawing view look so cluttered, why don’t they hide the lines right there?

All we ask is that you check the ideas already posted – just make sure it’s not already posted (you can bookmark it and vote later).
