If you are using SOLIDWORKS 2019 or newer, you may have noticed a tab on the command manager called “Structure Systems”. You may also have noticed that this command ribbon has very few tools on it. What is it?
Think weldments, but supercharged. Structure systems allows designers to create frame structures like scaffolding, support equipment, frames, a deck for your house. The list goes on. It allows designers to create these structures in a more concise workflow rather than using a series of weldments and trim tools resulting in a long feature tree.
