We are excited to announce the release of a new update to My.SolidWorks. In this new version we’ve  included several improvements making it easier for you to use the site and search for answers to your questions.

3D ContentCentral Integration

We’ve redesigned the presentation of 3D ContentCentral models in My.SolidWorks. Users and vendors invest a lot of time and resources into making high quality CAD models available to you and we want to make sure these models are presented to you in the best possible way.

Enhanced Search

My.SolidWorks is all about helping you get the answers you need, to get the most out of SolidWorks.  So with every release of My.SolidWorks, we fine tune the search engine to give you better, more relevant results.  For example,  “What’s the best video card for SolidWorks?”

For this release, we’ve also added two new search sources:

  • You can search for 3D ContentCentral models directly from My.SolidWorks.
  • We’ve added our YouTube channels to the search results.

Online Training Manuals

Are you attending a SolidWorks training class? SolidWorks Training is introducing online copies of Training manuals via My.SolidWorks.  Users who attend a training class can now easily access an online copy of their training manual on a PC, tablet or smartphone.

More To Come

My.SolidWorks is an ongoing project, and we have much more in store.  Join us at SolidWorks World 2014, January 26th through 29th, at the San Diego Convention Center, and be among the first to learn about the next round of enhancements.  We hope to see you there!

Thank you for all of the feedback you’ve given us, so far.  We’re always listening and open to new ideas – so please keep it coming!
