Has it already been a month since we last heard from Sol, our serene SOLIDWORKS specialist, and Sal, Sol’s somewhat subsidiary sidekick? That means it's time to check in on our dynamic duo. What could they be up to? One can only imagine….
“Say, Sol…’sup?” said Sal.
“Do you mean, what am I doing right now, Sal?” Sol sighed.
“Sure as shootin’!” exclaimed Sal.
“Well, Sal, I am waiting for you to finish some of our documentation. How’s it coming?”
“Funny you should ask, Sol. I just finished. Just look at this!”
“Look at what, Sal?”
Sal sheepishly gestured at the screen. “Um, Figure 1.”
“Sal, do you notice anything funny about that picture? Like, everything is floating in space?” Sol inquired, knowingly.
“Shoot, Sol. I was hoping nobody would notice,” Sal said, sheepishly.
“Want to know how to fix that?”
“Sure do, Sol!” Sal stated eagerly.
With that, Sol rolled up his sleeves and got to work. “First, we go to the Collaboration tab in the left pane and select the Ground actor. Then below, in its Properties panel, we simply proceed with the “Set height on geometry” option.”
“Slow down, Sol, I can’t write that fast!” Sal exclaimed, concerned he was going to miss a step.
“Well Sal, you could just look down at Figure 2.”
“Thanks, Sol,” sounded Sal self-consciously, and then shortly afterward said, “Ah, sweet! This looks much better, as you can tell by Figure 3.”
“Say, Sol, remind me again, where do you learn about all these cool SOLIDWORKS things?”
“Why, Graphics Systems’ SolidNotes, Sal. Graphics Systems’ SolidNotes.”
You can see several more of Sam’s somewhat serious series of Sol and Sal’s serial spree of SOLIDWORKS shenanigans throughout this blog.
