    Using This Course

    This course is not just this book. The SolidWorks Engineering Design Project, The

    Mountainboard is the focal point of the SolidWorks course — the road map for it. The

    supporting materials that are in the SolidWorks Online Tutorials give you a lot of

    flexibility in how you learn SolidWorks.

    Learning 3D design is an interactive process. You will learn best when you explore the

    practical applications of the concepts you learn. This course has many activities and

    exercises that will allow you to put design concepts into practice. Using the provided files,

    you can do so quickly.

    The lessons for this course are designed to balance lecture and hands-on learning. There

    are also assessments and quizzes that give you additional measures of your progress.

    Mountainboard Design Project with SolidWorks 4 SolidWorks Lesson 1: Using the Interface

    Engineering Design and Technology Series

    Active Learning Exercise — Using the Interface

    Start the SolidWorks application, search for a file, save the file, save the file with a new

    name, and review the basic user interface.

    The step-by-step instructions are given below.

    Starting a Program

    1 Click the Start button in the lower left corner of the window. The Start menu

    appears. The Start menu allows you to select the basic functions of the Microsoft

    Windows environment.

    Note: Click means to press and release the left mouse button.

    2 From the Start menu, click All Programs, SolidWorks, SolidWorks as shown below.

    Note: Depending on how SolidWorks was installed on your computer, the version

    and the Service Pack number, 2010 SP2.1 for instance, may be included or not


    The SolidWorks application program is now running.

    Note: Your Start menu may appear different than the illustration depending on which

    versions of the operating system is loaded on your system.

    TIP: A desktop shortcut is an icon that you can double-click to go

    directly to the file or folder represented. If your system desktop

    has a shortcut to the SolidWorks application program, you can

    start the program by double-clicking the left mouse button on this

    shortcut. The illustration shows the SolidWorks shortcut.

    Mountainboard Design Project with SolidWorks 5 SolidWorks Lesson 1: Using the Interface

    Engineering Design and Technology Series

    Exit the Program

    To exit the application program, click File, Exit or click on the main SolidWorks


    Searching for a File or Folder

    You can search for files (or folders containing files). This is useful if you cannot remember

    the exact name of the file that you need.

    Windows has two methods to search for files, Microsoft Desktop Search and the Search


    Microsoft Desktop Search

    Microsoft Desktop Search is normally loaded when SolidWorks is installed on your

    computer. After installation, it must create an index, similar to the index in the back of

    most reference books. When you search using Microsoft Desktop search, the search

    program just looks in the index for the location of the information you are searching for

    and displays the result.

    While Microsoft Desktop Search makes the search process much faster, it depends on

    creating and maintaining the index. If the index has not been created, we will not get a

    valid result from the search.

    Search Companion

    The Search Companion does not require any setup. When used to search, it starts at the

    beginning of the search path and checks everything. This is very much like searching for a

    topic in a book by starting at the first page and checking each page until you find the topic.

    Search for a file

    We will now use Search to fine a file.

    1 Click Start, Search. Search for the SolidWorks part dumbell.

    As we have not set up Microsoft Desktop Search, we will use the Search Companion.

    2 If Microsoft Desktop Search is loaded on your computer, you will get the following

    window. Click use Search Companion.

    Note: If Microsoft Desktop Search is not installed, you will go

    directly to the Search Companion.
