What’s New in SOLIDWORKS 2016: Design Enhancements

DESIGN ENHANCEMENTS:

SPEED UP YOUR DESIGN PROCESS

SOLIDWORKS 2016 speeds up your design process, keeps you focused on your work, and helps reduce time and effort to achieve your desired geometry.

  • Automatically create swept circular profiles in sections, with bi-directional sweeps in either or both directions with the Sweep command
  • Create complex blends and perfectly smooth fillets in seconds for all fillet types, including asymmetric and variable size with SOLIDWORKS Curvature Continuous Edge Fillets
  • Accurately model standard and custom-defined threads with one quick and easy-to-use command with the new Thread Wizard

INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY

Enhancements to the User Interface and workflows focus you on design (not the design tool) to increase productivity. The new look and feel is consistent across all of the SOLIDWORKS 2016 applications, for easy transition between tools.

  • Quickly and easily access any model without viewing the Feature Tree with new breadcrumbs
  • Immediately access all selections for quick and simple modifications
  • Reduce your mouse travel with the Breadcrumb in the cursor
  • Easily bring the Confirmation toolbar to the cursor
  • Apply transparency to the defined body, so selecting overlapping bodies is much easier with simplified Mate selections
