2 After You Receive the Presentation
Clicking on the link or the Logo, will take you to the web site. To add a link to your Favorites: RMB over the link and select “Add to Favorites”. If you know a really good SW web site, send it to me and I will update the file for future distribution. Mention that you couldn’t get the “copy link” to work. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Next page has the “how to” for the folder structure for the Weldment profiles.

3 Internet in SolidWorks
3D ContentCentral SolidWorks Content Users Content Thousands of profiles! Thousands of parts! Do you have to be a registered user? How many people use: Content Central? Save the file to the hard drive. Download profiles, be careful how you set up the folders that contain the files. See end of this presentation to show more on that.

9 Individuals Lenny’s SolidWorks Resources Mike J. Wilson (tips)
Matt Lombard Scott Baugh Paul Salvador Matt Lorono These are remarkable SW power user web sites. These are some of the better ones, but I know I don’t have them all. See the BLOGS to find more, I ran out of time researching this. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The next three pages will have non-SolidWorks pages. This presentation is to help you do your engineering job.
