solidworks-smash-up.jpgSo where is everything about the world of SolidWorks being stored out there? It’s not under your patio bench. It’s actually spread out across the entire chasm of the interwebular galaxy and is very difficult to harness at times.

Soooo, here’s a bunch of links that help me find SolidWorks content when I’m trying to find something to share with you all. Some of these I don’t talk much about, like the videos. There’s a bunch of them. And if children laugh at your SolidWorks skills, check some of them out.

Any other resources you use? Let me know and I’ll add it to the list.

Google SolidWorks Public – This is my personal SolidWorks Feed you can access anytime. Includes all the feeds from SolidWorks.
Google SolidWorks Blog Public – This is my personal feed for SolidWorks related blogs. Let me know if I’m missing any.
SolidWorks on Technorati – You can also find things through Technorati. This is a “Real-time search for user-generated media” so you can get good stuff and not-so-good stuff.
Google SolidWorks News – With this, you can pick up any news story that has SolidWorks in the content. It’s usually press releases and such, but every once in a while there’s something else.

SolidWorks on YouTube – There’s a lot of SolidWorks video content on YouTube. The quality is not spectacular on all of it but much if it is good enough.
One Minute Tips – You can see this on the SolidWorks Homepage. So far there are 15 videos created by SolidProfessor.
SolidMentor Video Section – A newish section on SolidMentor from some of the best users. There’s about 15 videos on here as well, but the quality is GREAT.
CADJunky – Hosted by SolidWorks but has video with anything related to CAD. It has it’s own video player and is a bit of a mash-up itself that supports video from Youtube and Google. The tips are good but I keep wishing the video quality was better.
