SOLIDWORKS 2019 What’s New – Trim Entities Enhancements – #SW2019

In SOLIDWORKS 2019, the trim entities tool has been improved. The new options make it easier to keep the sketches being trimmed fully defined. #newyearnewtrim

The first improvement: Keep trimmed entities as construction geometry. What this does is allows you to convert anything you are trimming into construction geometry.

The second improvement: Ignore trimming of construction geometry. This option saves all your construction lines and arcs from being chopped out.

These options maintain dimensional relations and some geometric relations depending on what you are trimming. You can use both options together, or not at all, if you’re not ready to let go of the past.
