What's New in SolidWorks - 2019 - Cambridge

Starts: August 23, 2019 at 09:00 Ends: August 23, 2019 at 15:00

TOPIC OF DISCUSSION:

3D INTERCONNECT – IMPORT CAD DATA FROM OTHER PROGRAMS

• SOLIDWORKS 3D Interconnect can now export files to the Revit® family (.rfa file format)

• Read tessellated data from third-party CAD files and load BREP data from imported part and assembly files

ENHANCEMENTS TO PART MODELLING FUNCTIONALITIES – SKETCH AND FEATURE CREATION

• Use the 3D Texture tool to transform textural appearances applied to a model into bumps

• Create partial chamfers and fillets with specified lengths along model edges

• Insert Part with a specific configuration

• Set values for tolerance and precision when creating Hole Wizard features

• Use interference detection between bodies in multibody parts

• Create geodesic 3D sketch offsets entities with the Offset on Surface tool

• Convert trimmed entities into construction geometry or ignore construction geometry when trimming

• Routing - Create partial or fixed length coverings for various locations and elements on route segments

• Sheet Metal - Link the sheet metal parameters to the material when assigning a custom metal

EHANCEMENTS TO ASSEMBLY MODELLING

• Create a bounding box feature in an assembly that contains geometry

• Simplify complex assemblies using the Silhouette command in the Defeature Property Manager

• Go through an exploded view step by step, and roll back exploded views

• External References window for parts and features, and assemblies are now combined into one window, use the Dynamic Reference Visualization to view feature dependencies

• Include or remove components based on specified criteria when saving an assembly as a part

• Treehouse enhancements – Add custom and configuration-specific properties to a Treehouse node

ENHANCEMENTS TO SOLIDWORKS DRAWINGS

• Ability to change or remove the border thickness of individual cells, selected groups of cells, and entire tables

• New Drawing Open Progress Indicator feature provides information on the status of operations while a drawing is being opened

ENHANCEMENTS TO SOLIDWORKS SIMULATION

• Any Microsoft® Windows® system options you define for formatting numerical values now propagate to post processing of simulation results, can control the formatting of numerical values when displaying results

• Export to Mesh BREP Body directly after running a Topology Study

• Ability to define stress (factor of safety) and frequency values as design constraints for a Topology study

• Updated pin connector ability to define a pin through more than two cylindrical surfaces in one definition is now extended to nonlinear static and nonlinear dynamic studies

• Redesigned Remote Load/Mass PropertyManager to improve the user experience and enhanced with the introduction of distributed coupling for linear static, nonlinear static, and topology studies.

• SolidWorks Plastics – assign boundary conditions such as Injection Locations, Control Valves, and Mold Wall Temperatures directly on geometric entities.

ENHANCEMENTS TO SOLIDWORKS PDM

• Define conditional notifications for transitions with SolidWorks PDM Professional

• Generate default values and update the values in the drawing data card for newly added sheets in a checked-out drawing file

• Edit your own history comments only with administrative permission

• File shortcut menu now appears in the Where Used, Contains, and Bill of Materials tabs.

• Convert Task in SolidWorks PDM Professional converts sheet metal flat patterns to DXF/DWG file format

ENHANCED CREATION OF PHOTOREALISTIC RENDERINGS USING SOLIDWORKS VISUALIZE

• Use the Automatic Data Recovery tool in SolidWorks Visualize to recover data in the case of a session ending unexpectedly

• Achieve significant reductions in render time for production-quality images using the new Denoiser feature (must meet minimum video card requirements)

• Import NVIDIA Material Definition Language (MDL) materials directly from the NVIDIA database

ENHANCEMENTS TO eDRAWINGS

• Specify configurations of a SolidWorks part to be available when you open the part in eDrawings

• All eDrawings Professional features from eDrawings 2018 and older now available in free eDrawings Viewer

• Access all assembly configurations that were saved in Large Design Review mode when opening assemblies
