SOLIDWORKS 2018 What’s New – Treehouse Enhancements – #SW2018

In 2018, SOLIDWORKS has enhanced Treehouse for easier use. Some of these enhancements include a list view (similar to how files would appear in Pack & Go). The functionality still exists in the list view including opening and copying documents. Columns can be hidden in the list view as well. The list view does not show suppressed files and you cannot change the active configuration.

In the tree view, you can hide suppressed documents to simplify the display. In addition, when selecting print, you get options for Print Extents, Print Display, and Print Preview. You can also click the Zoom to Area button to be able to zoom into a specific area and double click the middle mouse button to zoom extents of your layout.

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.
