SolidWorks 2020 Overview
Solidworks provides the breadth of tools to tackle the most complex problems, and the depth to finish critical detail work. New features help you improve your product development process to get your innovative products into production faster.
Solidworks design software is as simple as it is powerful – enabling any company to bring its vision to life and capture global markets.
Solidworks solutions focus on the way you work every day, with an intuitive, integrated 3D design environment that covers all aspects of product development and helps maximize your design and engineering productivity.
- 3D Interconnect
Open proprietary 3D CAD data directly in SOLIDWORKS, allowing you to work seamlessly with anyone, and incorporate design changes dramatically faster.
- Wrap Feature
Create geometry on any face. You are no longer limited to cylindrical surfaces when wrapping a sketch.
- Advanced Hole Wizard
Allows for the creation of holes with multiple elements, allowing for definition on either side. You now no longer need to use multiple hole wizard features to create holes with different elements.
- Sweep Profile
Previously you had to create a new sketch convert entities to create the same profile. Now you can select faces, edges, and curves to create the same profile.
- Magnetic Mates
Whether you’re working in large layouts or common parts, just grab the part or assembly until the magnet snaps it into place. It’s as easy as click and drag.
- Latest Version Overwrite
Allows you to check in your current version over your previous version, helping you save space on your server by not saving every incremental version.
- Offset On Surface
Make your life easier when working with complex geometry with the Offset On Surface feature. It simplifies the creation of thickens, cutouts, and junctions.
- Animation Import
Create life-like animations without additional effort or time. Save time by importing existing motion studies and animations to create amazing videos.
SOLIDWORKS solutions cover all aspects of your product development process with a seamless, integrated workflow—design, verification, sustainable design, communication and data management. Designers and engineers can span multiple disciplines with ease, shortening the design cycle, increasing productivity and delivering innovative products to market faster.
SOLIDWORKS® Premium is a comprehensive 3D design solution that adds to the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Professional with powerful simulation, motion, and design validation tools, advanced wire and pipe routing functionality, reverse engineering capabilities, and much more.
Users can test product performance against real life motion and forces with our rich simulation capabilities. Ensure manufacturability and resolve complex assembly issues early in the design process with tolerance stack-up analysis tools. Quickly incorporate printed circuit board data into your 3D model, and create and document layouts for electrical wiring, piping, and tubing with the extended toolsets of SOLIDWORKS. You can also work with 3D scanned data in SOLIDWORKS Premium. Experience all the benefits of a complete 3D design solution with SOLIDWORKS Premium.
