SOLIDWORKS World 2017 Highlights – 2018 Sketch Enhancements
Many of you got out to LA for SOLIDWORKS World 2017. For those who didn’t, we are glad to bring you some of the highlights. Here are a couple of things that they previewed coming in SOLIDWORKS 2018 for sketching. Yes, sketching…I know, right?
Mirror 3D sketch: For many of us, this ability has been long awaited. Using planes as the symmetrical reference, we will soon be able to mirror 3D sketches like seen below.
Thus making these shapes easier to create.
Freehand images and sketching really had not crossed my mind as a productivity booster. The sloppiness of the whole thing just seemed useless, other than conveying a general idea. Until now…
Never did I realize the potential of a touch screen in SOLIDWORKS until the free hand sketch converted into real lines and arcs in front of my eyes.
Quick and easy, just add fillets and dimensions.
Oh what the future will bring!
