Inserting SOLIDWORKS Data in Other Applications

You can link or embed SOLIDWORKS document into any other OLE-compliant application. For example, you can place a part in a product data sheet you created with Microsoft Word.

To insert a SOLIDWORKS document into another application:

  1. In the application, click Insert > Object.
    A dialog box appears that allows you to insert an existing object or to dynamically create and insert a new object. The dialog box that appears depends on the application.
  2. Select options, including whether you want to link the SOLIDWORKS document to this document and whether you want the SOLIDWORKS document to appear as an icon.
  3. Click OK.
    The SOLIDWORKS document or its icon appears.
