Tutorial: How to use “Mouse gestures” and “Shortcut Bars” to invoke commands in SolidWorks
So, we will customize shortcuts then create our part.
Te begin, Open a new file in solidworks: File, New, Part, Ok
First we will customize the "Mouse gestures", You can use 4 or 8 gestures, then 4 or 8 command to use also, repeat this step for any command you need to use.
- the polygon for the sketch column
- the cosmetic thread for the part column
Now we will customize the "Shortcut bars"
lunch a new sketch as shown, then select the front plan
as you can see, I have customized for 8 command, you can use others as you wish. repeat this step to : draw the "polygon", add a "dimension" then the "Extruded boss".
another sketch in the front face using the shortcut bar "press s key". then extrude a boss.
select the edge of the part, then drag to chose the cosmetic thread command.
select again the edge then add a chamfer. and that's all ^^.
