Are you a SolidWorks user who often (or occasionally) struggles with how to view the parts you want to see in the graphics area? SolidWorks has a nice selection of one-minute tips, which they illustrate in online clips so you can really follow the instructor’s lead. This one shows you how to get more control over what you choose to see. The tip highlights two key functions. The first is how to search inside the feature manager tree to find what you want, by adding tags and keywords, which enables you to search to find a specific part you want to view. The second capability helps isolate parts in a specific area by drawing a box around the site, highlighting it and clicking with the right mouse button to drill down into a certain segment that otherwise might have been hard to pin down.
Check it out and see if makes a difference in how you view parts.
