Learn about saving DWGs and PDFs automatically in SOLIDWORKS.
- [Instructor] If you've ever had to do…a whole bunch of repetitive tasks…like printing out documents or saving out file types…and you haven't looked at the Task Scheduler,…you might wanna take a look.…Now the Task Scheduler is a separate program…that generally installs with SOLIDWORKS…but it's not actually SOLIDWORKS.…It's a completely separate program.…So you generally need to look at your Start menu…and find the Task Scheduler.…So once you have it opened up…it looks a lot like this one right here…and we have a whole bunch of things that we can do…using the Task Scheduler.…So right up here at the top we can convert files.…So for instance if you were using SOLIDWORKS 2017…and you installed 2018 and you wanted to update…all your files in your file system to the latest format,…you could use this and it's gonna save you…a whole lot of time versus doing this manually.…
You can also go and click on Update Files here.…You can print files.…You can import, export,…a whole bunch of things you can do here…and it's really a handy tool.…
First, review the sheet metal tools in SOLIDWORKS and the properties that make sheet metal unique: bend radius, K-factor, bend deduction, gauge thickness, and more. Then learn how to create basic parts, with base features, flanges, and bends that add strength and connections. Find out how to flatten parts and add holes, cuts, and corners that are manufacturing ready, and use the Convert to Sheet Metal command to convert imported geometry into native sheet metal parts. Gabriel also shows you how to create assemblies from multiple parts, use the Pattern and Mirrors tools to effortlessly duplicate existing work, and then document your designs with detailed sheet metal drawings. Watch the bonus videos to learn about the different machinery and processes that occur during manufacturing.
