Explore and download free macros for SOLIDWORKS to add to your collection that automate a variety of SOLIDWORKS tasks.

A SOLIDWORKS macro is a shortcut to a task you perform repeatedly in SOLIDWORKS® 3D CAD software. It is a series of commands and actions that can be stored and run within SOLIDWORKS whenever you need to perform the task. You can record or build a macro in SOLIDWORKS, and then play the macro to automatically repeat the series of commands or actions.

3D ContentCentral® is a community of both users and suppliers. Macros are available on 3D ContentCentral for users of SOLIDWORKS® 3D CAD software along with millions of supplier parts and assemblies that have been certified by the manufacturers of these commercial, off-the-shelf components, SOLIDWORKS 2D blocks, and library features.

How does 3D ContentCentral work?

On 3D ContentCentral, you can perform any of the following tasks, thereby saving you precious design time that you would otherwise spend designing 2D or 3D CAD models of supplier components from 2D catalogs (PDF or DWG files):

  • Search for supplier components using part numbers, product names, descriptions, product parameters, and other application-specific criteria, or by simply browsing through an intuitive catalog interface. When you locate a component you want, request a quote from the supplier by simply submitting an RFQ (Request for Quotation) directly from the component page.
  • Configure components based on specific requirements, such as dimensions, features, colors, and accessories.
  • View free 2D and 3D parts & assemblies of both user-contributed and supplier components, 2D blocks, Library Features and Macros. You can zoom, pan, and rotate the parts & assemblies.
  • Download free 2D blocks, library features and macros for SOLIDWORKS. Download free 2D and 3D parts & assemblies in just seconds, in either native formats for several major mechanical CAD systems, including SOLIDWORKS® 3D CAD software, CATIA®, DraftSight, Pro/ENGINEER®, eDrawings®, and AutoCAD®, or industry standard CAD formats for Autodesk Inventor Series, Solid Edge, Unigraphics®, and other CAD systems.
  • Tag your favorite parts & assemblies, 2D blocks, library features, and macros with the keywords you use and then whenever you want them next simply search with your keywords.
  • Request specific parts & assemblies, 2D blocks, library features, and macros of the user community.
  • Personalize your own workspace on 3DCC and easily access your favorites, requests, gallery, comments, profile, downloads, and views.
