EmailFacebookGoogle+LinkedInTwitterShare

SOLIDWORKS 2015 has made it easy to access features such as cuts, holes, fillets/chamfers…etc. Placing them in a subfolder in the Favorites folder is the way to go.

The way about doing this is moving the specific features to the Favorites folder and then grouping them into a subfolder and giving that subfolder a specific name.

First, let's make our Favorites folder visible. Do the following steps to achive this.

1. In the FeatureManager design tree, right-click the part and click Hide/Show Tree Items.

2. In the dialog box, under Hide/Show tree items, set Favorites to Show and click OK. Your Favorites folder should be visible in the FeatureManager design tree.

Now lets go ahead and create those folders.

3.  Select features to group from FeatureManager design tree, right-click and click Sept blog 1Add to Favorites.
