CAMWorks

 Resources available to help you resolve your CAMWorks issues and supplement your learning.
Beyond the training manuals there are a number of tutorials and example files built in the software. To access the tutorials from your SolidWorks/CAMWorks interface, click Help > CAMWorks 2015, 2016, 2017 > CAMWorks Tutorials. Each tutorial guide is labeled based off the subject they cover so be sure you are opening the correct file. Once opened, you can use Ctrl+F to do a quick search if you are looking for something specific.
When you received your first e-mails after purchasing CAMWorks, there should have been a link to set up your account at SolidProfessor.

They have over 4 hours of great videos on CAMWorks broken down into particular features (i.e. circular pocket, irregular slot, etc.) and operations (i.e. rough mill, contour mill, etc.), each being a few minutes long, so it's definitely worth signing up for as a way to refresh yourself on different features. Please let us know if you did not receive this email.
 
DraftSight

In addition to the built in Help Files available for DraftSight within the software under the "Help" pull down menu, other resources available to help you resolve your DraftSight issues are as follows:
The Swym Community Forum is a collection of posts and questions made by DraftSight peers, as well as Dassault Systemes DraftSight Technical Support agents. The Swym DraftSight Community Forum can be accessed at https://swym.3ds.com/
  • DraftSight Technical Support
If you are currently using a free version of DraftSight, you have access to DraftSight technical support via e-mail. To access the e-mail support, enter the DraftSight Swym community - help, select the "Need Help?" icon and report your problem.
