Using Push and Pull in SOLIDWORKS | Tech Tip Tuesday

Tech Tip Tuesday is back! The SOLIDWORKS Training Team has put together a collection of the most useful tips and tricks for our design software.


Today’s tip is all about pushing and pulling in SOLIDWORKS.

In this tutorial, we explore the efficiency of using Instant3D, a powerful tool in SOLIDWORKS, to expedite the transition from rough concepts to final designs.

Instant3D allows us to intuitively push, pull, and drag faces to reshape the geometry swiftly. It is invaluable for modifying underdefined faces and adjusting dimensions seamlessly.

The tutorial emphasizes the versatility of Instant3D, applicable to various design scenarios, offering a time-saving alternative for the early stages of the design process.
