SolidWorks:Heard! - Episode 307 - @SolidWorksTips

@SolidWorks Tips:

This podcast is an overview of tips out of the @SolidWorksTips Twitter account that @beneadie and @solidsmack and I (@gol10dr) started over two years ago.  I have personally put over 165 tips up and this show is a taste of what you can expect.  Topics covered:

- Shortcuts

- Assembly tips

- Sketching tips

- User Interface tips

- File management tips

- New release additions

- Various tips in other SolidWorks releated software

- Info on UsingSolidWorks.com

Back in the summer of 2008, Ben Eadie started a Twitter account called "SolidWorks tips" and he invited Josh Mings and I to contribute.  The first couple of weeks it was a growing in tips pretty fast by the three of us but the tips started to drop off after awhile. I have continued to post tips to the account by way of THE HEaRD, which echos over to this Twitter account.

Usually tips from SolidWorks World pump up the activity as well as after a major release.  If you are active on Twitter or would consider yourself a Twlurker (one who lurks in Twitter) then I think it is a great way to grab a nugget every once in a while to help out with the daily use of this tool we all live in.  In a tool like SolidWorks, tips are abundant so the stream can continue to grow.

Currently the account holds about 175+ tips and continues to grow. If you have a tip that you would like to share, you can always send an @ reply to solidworkstips and we can post it for you and give you credit.  It is about having a repository of tips for the community and although it can be challenging to deliver it in just 140 chars, it is a great way to get to the point! ~Lou
