Highlights of SolidWorks 2010 include:
SolidWorks Premium 3D CAD software improves designers’ and engineers’ productivity with a wide range of new capabilities. Patent-pending rapid dimensions, for example, display new dimension placement alternatives and neatly re-arrange existing dimensions to make room for the selection. A configuration publisher lets users easily publish a model configurator interface to the 3D ContentCentral® service – a Web-based marketplace for 3D parts, assemblies, and other content – to enable simple selection of model alternatives. Patent-pending heads-up mouse gesturing puts unprecedented power in simple movements of the hand. SolidWorks 2010 also provides greatly enhanced reference plane creation methods, sheet metal functionality, weldment performance, component mirroring capabilities, and direct editing tools. And PhotoView 360 makes it even easier for novices to render photorealistic images like professionals.
SolidWorks 2010 also includes enhancements to SolidWorks Simulation Premium, SolidWorks Enterprise PDM and 3DVIA Composer.
New for SolidWorks 2010 is SolidWorks Sustainability.
SolidWorks Sustainability software for the first time makes sustainable design accessible, credible, and SolidWorks simple. SolidWorks Sustainability helps users determine the carbon footprint, energy consumption, and air/water impacts in a product design’s raw material sourcing, manufacture, use, and disposal. An assembly visualization tool color-codes parts based on their total environmental impact. Configuration support in the software also lets users compare multiple design iterations for sustainability concerns.
Included with every license of SolidWorks software, SolidWorks SustainabilityXpress helps users immediately determine the environmental impact of any part. SolidWorks Sustainability products include an environmental impact dashboard, customizable reports, and a tool to find alternative materials to easily compare and instantly improve the sustainability of a part.
