Tip: Change cost with Costing

In SOLIDWORKS Costing (which you have access to, if you have a Premium or Professional license) you can see different costs of different production methods. These costs are based on the templates used for price estimates. But sometimes you may need to change / add something to certain methods, for example. punching, cutting, bending etc.

You can make these changes as follows:

1. Right-click Operation Setup (4) and select Add Setup Operation


2. Select the new operation and select Apply Cost Override.


3. Enter the cost
4. Done!
