The surface of SOLIDWORKS has been visually changed greatly, and so the Tools on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform approximated. Other reasons are the support of high-definition screens and the improvement for visually impaired users.
The beginning is very unusual for long-time users of the CAD Software, however, is the transition after a short time, not more, and even more, the new interface is quite pleasant for the longer work on the screen.
Now you’ll ask yourself: What have bread crumbs in a CAD Software lost??? Quite simply, they help the user quickly searched the contents of the SOLIDWORKS components. I choose, for example, a surface of a body in the graphics window to, give me the Breadcrumbs of different hierarchical choices down to the top part. So I come quickly to sketches, Features, bodies etc, with whom I quickly can continue to work.
Solid show and hide:
In an earlier Version of SOLIDWORKS is the ability for assemblies created, the components with the TAB key to hide and shift + TAB again. From 2016 onwards, it is now in Parts is possible, the visibility of a solid or surface as control. A great extension!
Were the parents references already since the last Version of SOLIDWORKS be represented visually, coming with this Release the child references. This contributes to the Overview of the dependencies clear!
As far as to the time the General what’s new in SOLIDWORKS 2016. In the next few days, it goes with the new sketches of the functions. Just have a look again over here!
