What’s New in SOLIDWORKS 2016: Build Enhancements

SOLIDWORKS 2016 Build Enhancements


The “camera” for SOLIDWORKS and other CAD data

In order to quickly and easily create marketing quality images, SOLIDWORKS Professional and Premium now come bundled with SOLIDWORKS Visualize (Formerly Bunkspeed). This new pairing supports an enhanced workflow to get from CAD to “Photo” in just five fun steps.

  • Intuitively drag/drop stunning and ready-to-use materials, environments, and backgrounds into your scene
  • Realize your concepts fast, accelerating the time to get your designs from concept to consumer
  • Craft emotional imagery from your SOLIDWORKS data just like using a camera
  • Show off every design detail with high quality graphic results in the least amount of time
  • Create, communicate, and collaborate more effectively to help drive innovation, make better design decisions, and develop better business solutions



Manufacturers look to optimize how they work with suppliers. New enhancements to SOLIDWORKS MBD help you quickly and accurately communicate your design with downstream manufacturing operations.

  • Create dimensions quickly by automatically aligning selected edges horizontally or vertically
  • Fully annotate assemblies
  • Quickly identify tolerance zone orientation and location
  • Improve the output of 3D PDFs with support for decals and textures, and the re-use of SOLIDWORKS tables
  • Create multi-sheet PDFs with relevant information for manufacturers or suppliers
