Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Using and customizing the Ribbon, part of SOLIDWORKS: Sheet Metal Design.

And when we get started with designing a…sheet metal part using the base or flange feature, these other tools will become available.…We also can turn on other tools and tool palettes.…We can do that by right-clicking on any one of the tabs and coming down to the…very bottom here and click on Customize Command Manager.…
And this allows us to completely customize our interface.…We can show or hide toolbars, we can click on different shortcut bars, we can go to commands.…And the Commands folder here you can see we have a Sheet Metal tab.…Click on it. And these are all the tools that can be in…this part of the ribbon, or I can actually add those to other ribbons, so in this…
