Finding Commands

This lesson introduces you to the methods available for accessing commands.

One of the main ways the SOLIDWORKS user interface has improved over time is by offering you more ways to access the commands that let you build and modify your models. Some of this access is particularly quick and efficient because it keeps you close to your modeling work.

Wherever possible, the hands-on tutorials refer to the location of commands on the CommandManager. But you may prefer to access commands in a different way, and this tutorial helps you to understand your choices.

After you are familiar with them, the methods that keep you closest to your work are likely to be the quickest. However, the best method is the method that is the easiest and most convenient for you.
