Logging into SOLIDWORKS

SOLIDWORKS provides a login feature. You use the same SOLIDWORKS ID to access the Customer Portal, MySolidWorks, and the SOLIDWORKS Forums.

Benefits to logging in are:
  • Links within SOLIDWORKS automatically log you into SOLIDWORKS websites, such as:
    MySolidWorks
    SOLIDWORKS Forum
    Customer Portal
    Get Support
  • You can synchronize your system settings automatically across multiple computers while logged in. To synchronize settings, click Tools > Options > Synchronize Settings.

    When you log in, customization and system options (excluding file locations) are synchronized by default.

    You can synchronize the following settings:
    • File locations listed in Tools > Options and Toolbox/Hole Wizard.
    • Customizations including toolbar layouts, menu customizations, mouse gestures, and keyboard shortcuts.

To log into the SOLIDWORKS software:

  1. In the SOLIDWORKS title bar, click Log In or in the Welcome dialog box, click Log In.
  2. In Email, enter your SOLIDWORKS ID.

    The SOLIDWORKS ID can be your email address.

  3. In Password, enter your password.
  4. Click Log in.

You remain logged in until you click and click Logout user_name. Closing SOLIDWORKS does not log you out.
