New SolidWorks Book
Customize SolidWorks to Increase Your Effectiveness

Cincinnati, OH, March 29, 2007Sheet Metal Guy, LLC announced today a new book entitled "Customizing SolidWorks For Greater Productivity". This book will help you work faster and more efficiently in SolidWorks. Out of the box, SolidWorks is a wonderful CAD system. But it is set up in a general manner so that all designers can access the various tools. To truly be productive, you need to customize the program and bring together the tools and features you use on a regular basis to model your parts, thereby streamlining your user interface.

"Customizing SolidWorks For Greater Productivity" shows you how to customize your system to greatly increase your speed and efficiency. SolidWorks allows you to modify the program, creating your own ideal set of menus and toolbars. There are so many different areas of the program that you can tailor to the way you work, yet most users don't take advantage of this.

This book shows you how and where to customize SolidWorks to maximize your design potential and achieve top performance. An informative and practical “how-to” guide, it also shows how to work with multiple viewports, the multiple document interface, document properties, drawings, and collaboration with others. While this book is based on SolidWorks 2007, much of the information applies to older versions of the software as well.

"'Customizing SolidWorks' is a great book for a beginner as it exposes you to lots of areas that you can customize to suit your style of working," said Wayne Tiffany, President of the Kansas City SolidWorks User Group. "But it's also a good read for advanced users, since there will invariably be a nugget or two that will settle out. When I read it, I found a few things that piqued my curiosity enough to cause me to do a bit of exploring."

Written by Neil Bucalo, a Certified SolidWorks Support Technician and co-author of the series, "SolidWorks for the Sheet Metal Guy", Neil shares powerful  techniques that are proven to increase your speed and maintain consistency in modeling in SolidWorks. "Customizing SolidWorks For Greater Productivity" is set to be released mid-April. Advanced orders can be made at
