The 'FlexiDesign' menu can be found next to the 'Help' menu as the following image shows.


If the 'FlexiDesign' menu is not visible, follow these instructions to enable it:
  1. In SolidWorks, click on 'Tools >> Add-Ins'


  2. In the 'Add-Ins' dialog, click on the two checkboxes near 'FlexiDesign', under 'Other Add-Ins' and click 'OK'.



  3. The 'FlexiDesign' menu should now be enabled for the current and future sessions of SolidWorks.
