WHAT’S NEW SOLIDWORKS-2018

Toronto - Jan 12 - 9:00AM-3:00PM

TOPIC OF DISCUSSION:

3D INTERCONNECT – IMPORT CAD DATA FROM OTHER PROGRAMS

• SOLIDWORKS 3D Interconnect now supports STEP, IGES, and ACIS file formats

• Now gathers additional information from third-party native CAD files: Assembly cut features, Custom Properties, Material properties, Unconsumed sketches and curves, Reference axes from CATIA®V5 files only

ENHANCEMENTS TO THE SOLIDWORKS USER INTERFACE

• Auto-rotate View on Sketch Edit

• Folder Icons in the Feature Manager Design Tree now indicate the state of items in the folders Login to

• Measure tool can now select up to six items

• Mouse gestures – allow 2,3,4,8, or 12 gestures

• Welcome Dialog box – quicker way to open New part or assembly or browse recent documents/folders, easy access to learning and training resources

• SolidWorks Login – new Online Licensing

ENHANCEMENTS TO PART MODELLING FUNCTIONALITIES – SKETCH AND FEATURE CREATION

• Create Mirrored entities in a 3D sketch

• Create normal cuts on sheet metal parts

• Tab and slot Feature

• Three Bend Corner Reliefs

• Control the Tangency direction for curved sketches

• Instances limit removed for circular sketch patterns

• Mirroring entities using reference planes and planar faces in a sketch

EHANCEMENTS TO ASSEMBLY MODELLING

• Change transparency of an assembly or multibody part

• Perpendicular mates, temporarily hide faces when selecting mates

• Misaligned and Magnetic mates

• Pattern Enhancements

• Performance evaluation enhancements – Assembly open progress indicator, Assembly visualization enhancements, Performance Evaluation tool enhancements

• Smart Explode Line

• SpeedPak – Setting a Rebuild on Save Mark on SpeedPak Configurations, Updating SpeedPak Configurations Automatically

• Treehouse enhancements – different UI, Print options, hiding supressed documents, display files in a list view

ENHANCEMENTS TO SOLIDWORKS DRAWINGS

• Auto hatching in Section Views - randomize scale

• Create a horizontal movable / rotational movable Datum Target

• New draft symbols in the Symbol Library• Add Broken-out Section View to Alternate Position Views, Detail Views, and Section Views

ENHANCEMENTS TO SOLIDWORKS SIMULATION

• Topology studies allow the designer to explore design iterations of a component that can satisfy a given optimization goal

• Email notifications for completed analyses in System Options

• Import simulation study features into assemblies from parts or sub-assemblies

• Create a Simulation mass property sensor

ENHANCEMENTS TO SOLIDWORKS PDM

• Automated Drawing PDF creation in SolidWorks PDM Standard using the convert task

• Data card editor undo command has been added

• Revision table integration – PDM can read and write values from or to a revision table

ENHANCED CREATION OF PHOTOREALISTIC RENDERINGS USING SOLIDWORKS VISUALIZE

• Use the SolidWorks visualize add-in to export SolidWorks models directly from SolidWorks to visualize with the click of a button

• Import animations you create in SolidWorks (motion studies) into visualize for rendering

• You can now import Solidworks Cameras, custom views, and lights from your SolidWorks model into SolidWorks Visualize

• Visualize 2018 now has a Dark and Light theme for the User Interface

ELECTRONICS DESIGN – SOLIDWORKS PCB

• Continuous improvements to integrating ECAD with MCAD

EVALUATE MACHINING PROCESSES – SOLIDWORKS CAM

• CAM Standard comes with SOLIDWORKS Subscription Service

• CAM Professional separate

• Quickly create tool paths and CAM data to help manufacture your model, getting it out the door faster

• Inspection Add-In used to generate inspection reports for parts and assemblies
