Some items in the SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual (SWMC) user interface are shared with other apps on the 3DExperience Platform. These include the compass, search field, and services buttons on the top bar. Other elements are unique to working within SWMC including the action bar, design tree, tabs, bread crumbs, dialog windows, and task panel. Understand the benefits of using SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual for concept design. Use the capabilities of the single modeling environment and editing capabilities to eliminate the limitations of strategizing a models structure ahead of time. Use collaboration tools and communities to involve all project stake holders in the development of a design as the concept evolves.
