Who says improving your CAD performance can’t be entertaining? Let’s Go Design, an interactive, online episodic series produced by SolidWorks, combines cool design projects with tips and demos for working smarter.
Season one featured the ultimate CAD chair, which swoops around from the ceiling and looks like something right out of Star Wars. The next project was a multi-sport practice cage that could turn any kid into a pro athlete. And, very soon, host Jeremy Luchini and his design team will be putting the finishing touches on a hot rod baby buggy. It’s sure to inspire dads to spend more quality time with the little ones.

It’s a meticulous process, but it’s one worth taking. Big problems can arrive when graphics cards and drivers aren’t working well with the version of AutoCAD you have installed. Read full article »
