Years from now we’ll be sitting around the campfire telling our grandchildren of how EPDM 2009 was the version where they greatly improved the SOLIDWORKS addin. The kids won’t believe us when we tell them how hard our lives were before.

That little pane in the bottom of the task pane is pretty sweet eh?

…but did you know you can customize it? You can add additional variables to display here too! (By default we only get Description)

In SOLIDWORKS, go to Enterprise options, the view settings tab, find the variable you wish to display

options1

then chose to “display in the preview”. This is a personal preference so any settings you do here are for you only, you don’t have to worry about upsetting Larry and is precious setup….but just for fun switch the order of his little troll dolls.
