With a 3D modeling system like SOLIDWORKS, one of the most important benefits is the ability to see how components fit together. When done correctly, this practically eliminates costly manufacturing mistakes that happen when various elements interfere with one another. The interference detection capabilities of SOLIDWORKS has been a favorite of designers for decades. Now with the SOLDIWORKS 2021 release, interference detection has been greatly improved with the ability to export interferences to an easy to share Excel spreadsheet.
With the addition of the Save Results option to interference detection, you can now save the interference detection results separately. This makes it easy to document your design and collaborate with your team. But you can also take it a step further and include a thumbnail image of each interference. This is all captured automatically with the newly improved Interference Detection tool.
