Experience the top 10 newest features of SOLIDWORKS 2020


  Users can explore experience to design products faster than ever by hundreds of new features of SOLIDWORKS 2020. Let's check out what's Top 10 features are down here:

1. Working Faster by Large Assembly Drawings

   It is easier to open drawings in a snap while maintaining the ability to add and edit annotations with the new Drawing Detailing Mode which is ideal for quickly opening drawings for minor edits or design reviews. Therefore, individual sheets are loaded instantly and the drawing can also be printed as well as several editing capabilities are available such as making effective changes to annotations or dimensions.

  Additionally, the new Graphics Acceleration for Drawings advanced frame rates when panning and zooming on drawings with hardware-accelerated rendering.


                                                                                                                SOLIDWORKS 2020 Large Assembly Drawings

  • Main Benefits: Many sheets, configurations, and resource-intensive views on drawings for working amazing faster. 


2. Faster Assembly Design

   With the updated Envelope Publisher in SOLIDWORKS 2020, envelopes are not limited to components in the assembly environment. And, you just have the ability to choose the elements needed for reference and a destination assembly.

   The next improvement is the Large Design Review Mode. This feature allows you to fastly create mates to the reference geometry of components, easily create and edit linear and circular, or edit pattern-driven component patterns. While editing an assembly in Large Design Review mode, you can use shortcuts to copy, paste, and hide or show, and zoom components.


                                                                                                                   SOLIDWORKS 2020 Assembly Defeature 

  • Main benefits: Accelerated assembly design and maximized reduced visual clutter.


3. Flexible Components

   Make Part Flexible can help you to display the same part in various conditions in the assembly environment. For instance, showing a spring compressed and at full length in the identical assembly. Besides, you can create a flexible part without making unique configurations or separate part files which optimizes your data management and efficiency for applying parts to life. Although this is living hinges, bellows, springs, cables, and beyond, using Make Part Flexible in SOLIDWORKS 2020 can enhance how you can visualize and validate your next assembly.


                                                                                                            SOLIDWORKS 2020 Flexible Components

  • Main benefits: Fastly create assembly designs while maintaining an exact bill of materials.


4. Faster Sketching

   By using new Silhouette Entities, you can make multiple sketch entities by projecting the outline of component bodies on a parallel sketch plane.

   Torsion Continuity Relation will assist you to gain G3 curvature between sketched curves, thereby allowing a seamless transition.

   Making mistakes is an indispensable part of the design process, however, using the undo button too liberally may result in work will be lost. Because of this problem, SOLIDWORKS 2020 contains significant improvements about the redo function, hence, even if you accidentally undo out of a sketch, your changes are not lost.


                                                                                                           SOLIDWORKS 2020 Sketching

  • Main benefits: Creating robust sketches more quickly. 


5. Faster Calculation and Improved Accuracy for Simulation

   The speed and accuracy of SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2020 have been advanced by a combination of linear and quadratic elements in the similar simulation study.

   Pin and Bolt Connectors can deform faces firmly attached to Pin and Bolt.

   Presently, Beam Models could have imported temperatures to carry out a pressure analysis after running a thermal analysis on a model with beams.


                                                                                                        SOLIDWORKS 2020 Faster Calculations

  • Main Benefits: Function faster and more exact calculations and better simulation of real-world behavior.


6. Improved Design Experience

   The first stage to successful 3D printing is checking your part or assembly that fits inside the 3D print area. SOLIDWORKS 2020 contains a full list of 3D printers with updated envelope information. From SOLIDWORKS 2020, you can generate slices based on precise 3D geometry instead of exporting to a tessellated geometry format as same as STL.

   This information can be saved in the 3MF format which is an open-source, format based on XML designing, especially for modern additive manufacturing. Furthermore, it not only stores the 3D geometric data but also material, color, textures, 2D slice data, and more.

   Try 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace where you can get quotes from hundreds of qualified service suppliers (including us) and several different manufacturing processed by a click in case you do not have available fabrication resources in house. As a result, you can simply upload your design, optimize directly, select producer, and receive your adjusted parts.

   SOLIDWORKS 2020 makes it easier from design to prototype to manufacturing with all of these new 3D printing enhancements.


                                                                                                       SOLIDWORKS 2020 3D Printing

  • Main benefits: Reducing time and simplifying design tasks.


7. Expanded Interoperability with 3D Interconnect

   By allowing you to drag and drop non - native exported files from Windows Explorer into your assembles like any other SOLIDWORKS component, SOLIDWORKS 2020 simplifies the interconnect workflow through using native and neutral CAD files.

   Moreover, 3D Interconnect in SOLIDWORKS 2020 adds support to new formats, including 3D DWG and DXP as well as IFC, enabling you to work directly with a large number of files without the demand for translation.


                                                                                                          SOLIDWORKS 2020 Interconnect

  • Main benefits: Cooperating and working with more data sources easily.


8. More flexibility for Surfacing

   SOLIDWORKS is always a robust tool for working with imported surface data and offsetting existing geometry. However, all the needed surface cannot be offset all the time. Consequently, SOLIDWORKS 2020 introduces new functionality to indicate that the surfaces cannot be offset. Each surface can be easily identified and that is a chance to change the offset or remove the failing surfaces.

   SOLIDWORKS 2020 shows a new option in order to thicken surfaces equally in both directions and makes complicated surface modeling simple and easier than ever!


                                                                                                            SOLIDWORKS 2020 Surface Offset

  • Main benefits: Simply and accelerate your design more robust, flexible surface selection.


9. Direct Mesh Editing

   Nowadays, the demand for directly edit mesh geometry, as STL files, is becoming more common than before which results in SOLIDWORKS continues to expand on its diverse editing features set. Filleting edges is able to use the identical workflow like a native SOLIDWORKS file, you can even change the fillet to a chamfer and contrary.

   STL files that be damaged are a popular problem so you can delete these holes by right-clicking and choosing from the context menu or selecting the edge and pressing delete. Delete Face in SOLIDWORKS 2020 expands the capability to support Delete and Fill which helps to remove these features on the part of a slight operation.


                                                                                                          SOLIDWORKS 2020 Direct Mesh Editing 

  • Main benefits: Working with Mesh and STL files more easily and conveniently.


10. Connected Design - Manufacturing Ecosystem in the Cloud

   Through the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE platform, connecting SOLIDWORKS 2020 with key tools becomes easy.

   In order to collaborate in real-time from anywhere and on any device, Data Sharing and Collaboration assists to share models with each other between SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE tools.

   Extended Workflows allows you to simply extend the design ecosystem with new abilities such as sub-divisional modeling, conceptual design, product lifecycle, and project management in the cloud.



                                                                                                              SOLIDWORKS 2020 3DEXPERIENCE Platform


  • Main benefits: Allowing seamless product development workflows and easily extending them by new tools for progressing business.
