Tutorial: How to use SolidWorks as AutoCAD
The great plugin "2D Emulator" allows you to work in SolidWorks as you would in AutoCAD.
The 2D "AutoCad" Emulator is not avalible/installed on X64 machines. So while it still remains in the help documentation, if your computer and SolidWorks install is X64 you will not have the option.
SolidWorks allows it's users the great designing experience and higher user interface. If you are more familiar with AutoCAD then you can do your work as same as you do in autocad. you just have to activate the "SolidWorks 2D Emulator" add-in.
