With SP 3.0 live and people making the upgrade we need to help SOLIDWORKS out. SOLIDWORKS is looking for our help.(yes that includes you!) We are not helping. As a community we are not helping 🙁 Inside your system options is something that is not turned on. The sad part is that you actually turned it off when you installed the software in the first place.  The little thing that we are not doing is sending SOLIDWORKS very important information. […]

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

    I have had a couple of panic calls on the support lines in the last couple of months with people trying to figure out how to kill or stop the SOLIDWORKS task scheduler once you pull the trigger. Its like a self replicating virus. You kill all of the processes that you think should do it. Nope. You restart the computer. Yeah this will work! Only to find out that as soon as you log-on she starts right back up. […]

The problem is that this a current limitation […]

It’s All About Workarounds! Really? Yes Really!

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

In my experience it’s all about workarounds. Isn’t it? I mean really let’s think about it. In everyday life if there isn’t a given path or answer what do we do (especially designers and engineers)? We work around it. I can’t remember the last time something went off without a hitch or some sort of a “bump in the road. It isn’t supposed to be smooth. As the type of personality that expects perfection in most situations, I have come […]

Your company has invested countless hours developing this product or products and there is proprietary information contained […]
