Top 11 Features in SOLIDWORKS 2019: Touch Screen

March 15, 2019

SOLIDWORKS 2019 builds upon the ground-breaking touch modeling innovations introduced last year in SOLIDWORKS 2018 and offers even more enhancements for working on touch-enabled devices. There’s now a wealth of innovative new productivity enhancement that lets you take advantage of the latest cutting-edge hardware technology. 3D CAD modeling on a touch screen PC such as a Microsoft Surface or a Windows 10 PC is now even better. Currently, more entity types are supported when sketching with a pen or stylus, dimensions can be created by writing directly on screen and the intuitive touch-optimized environment supports even more everyday design workflows.

Top 11 Features in SOLIDWORKS 2019: Removed Section View

March 1, 2019

We’d all agree that there is an inherent complexity in trying to convey a 3D concept in 2D space and have seen that it’s possible for some information to get lost in translation while making this change. To help deal with this complexity there are powerful new productivity enhancements that make documenting your designs even faster in SOLIDWORKS 2019.

Top 11 Features in SOLIDWORKS 2019: Structure System

February 22, 2019

It's time to reveal our sixth favorite feature in SOLIDWORKS 2019: the structure system tool. Weldments are a key feature of many designs and SOLIDWORKS has long been an innovator in providing tools to create weldments. The structure system tool is a brand-new way to create weldments. To see it in action be sure to check out the video below where it’s used to create a large support structure for a massive telescope.

Top 11 Features in SOLIDWORKS 2019: Interference Detection for Multi-Body Parts Modeling

February 1, 2019

SOLIDWORKS 2019 offers some incredible features. Today we'll go over one of the most important tools for avoiding potential manufacturing defects and mishaps: the interference detection tool. Until now, this tool was only available for Assemblies. This is great for most modeling workflows because it helped show potential collisions or interference in complicated assemblies, but it was also an important tool for multi-body parts and thanks to the 2019 upgrade we can now handle this.
