SOLIDWORKS 2016 What’s New – SOLIDWORKS COMPOSERS – New Timeline Tracks – #SW2016


In this latest version of Composer there are a few enhancements that are worth noting, one being the remodeled animation timeline tracks.


The Camera and Digger tracks remain the same but other actors get a little more attention here. Where before all the actor keys frames were a single track you now have three main tracks being Location, Properties, and Viewport. You also have three sub tracks for Properties which are Opacity, Materials, and Events. This will help relieve some of the need for filters, such as “filter for selected actor” or “filter for location key frames”


We hope this part of the What’s New series gives you a better understanding of the new features and functions of SOLIDWORKS 2016. Please check back to the CATI Blog as the CATI Support Team will continue to break down many of the new items in SOLIDWORKS 2016. All of these articles will be stored in the category of “SOLIDWORKS What’s New.”You can also learn more about SOLIDWORKS 2016 by clicking on the image below to register for one of CATI’s Design Summit’s.
