SOLIDWORKS 2018 What’s New – SOLIDWORKS Electrical Distributed Mode – #SW2018


SOLIDWORKS 2018 What’s New – SOLIDWORKS Electrical Distributed Mode – #SW2018

If you have a server/client installation, you may have noticed that those large projects can start to lag. Distributed mode should take care of that issue. On the Process tab, there is a new group of commands called Deferred Update Mode. Select Activate, and then go about your business working on the project. When you are ready, select Update Connections to push all your changes to the server. This method of working will minimize the network traffic and large data operations during your schematics development.

I hope this part of the What’s New series gives you a better understanding of the new features and functions of SOLIDWORKS 2018. Please check back to the CATI Blog as the CATI Application Engineers will continue to break down many of the new items in SOLIDWORKS 2018. All of these articles will be stored in the category of “SOLIDWORKS What’s New.” You can also learn more about SOLIDWORKS 2018 by clicking on the image below to register for one of CATI’s Design Innovation Summits.
