Entering a New Dimension

Moving your designs to a different dimension, from 2D to 3D, can be intimidating. But with the tips, tricks and tutorials in our webinar, you can become a pro in no time.

About This On-Demand Webinar

In this webinar, Application Engineer, Patricia Bar, takes you on a journey for moving your designs from 2D to 3D. She shows you how to open a DWG or DXF file in SOLIDWORKS and then discuss the different options available and what their implications might be.
