SOLIDWORKS adds hundreds of new features every single release – and SOLIDWORKS 2019 is no exception. With great improvements in assembly performance, new workflows, and new surface texture features, SOLIDWORKS continues to innovate in 3D CAD.

THE BEST OF SOLIDWORKS 2019 RELEASE

1. NEW 3D TEXTURE TOOL

  • Convert patterns from an image file into 3D geometry automatically
  • Output mesh geometry directly for downstream manufacturing processes
  • New slicer feature provides workflows to develop solid geometry from mesh models

Top Ten 1 - mesh texture

2. IMPROVED EDITING WITH LARGE ASSEMBLY TOOLS

  • Large Design Review (LDR) mode now supports a number of editing actions
  • Access and edit mates, add and remove components, and change configurations
  • While seeing excellent system performance, leverage magnetic mates and reference geometry for a quick layout of large facilities and plants

Top Ten 2 - Large Design Review

3. ENHANCED GRAPHICAL PERFORMANCE

  • SOLIDWORKS 2019 takes advantage of the latest graphics card technology for GPU processing of a graphical display
  • Manipulate large assemblies without experiencing delays or compromising visual quality.
  • Similar technology powers the new AI Denoiser in SOLIDWORKS Visualize

Top Ten 3 - Graphics Performance

4. MODEL-BASED DEFINITION (MBD) FOR SHEET METAL PARTS

  • SOLIDWORKS MBD outputs now capture sheet metal bend notes, flat patterns, and bend tables (requires SOLIDWORKS MBD)
  • Assembly-level PMI is now available for all SOLIDWORKS users, and PMI for parts and assemblies can be imported into SOLIDWORKS Composer
  • Also allows secure password-protected 3D PDF creation with control over printing, copying and

Top Ten 4 - MBD

5. IMPROVED TOPOLOGY STUDY CONSTRAINTS FOR GENERATIVE DESIGN

  • Perform generative part design considering strength, stiffness, and now frequency constraints
  • Design optimal geometry to meet product performance goals, with more input options
  • Leverage mesh modeling tools in SOLID- WORKS to prepare generative designs for additive manufacturing processes

Top Ten 5 - Topology

6. ENHANCED EDRAWINGS OUTPUT FORMATS

  • eDrawings Viewer now includes measure, markup, comment capability
  • Improved performance, including support for GPU processing
  • eDrawings Pro enables direct export to 3D HTML, as well as formats to support AR/VR devices

Top Ten 6 - edrawings

7. DIRECT 3D MARKUP TOOLS

  • Add markup and notes directly to your 3D model
  • Support for pen and touch interfaces for quick and natural design commenting
  • Markup views are saved with the file and are accessible to all members of your design community

Top Ten 7 - 3D markup

8. NEW CHAMFER AND FILLET CREATION OPTIONS

  • Create partial chamfers and fillets along a portion of an edge
  • Control fillet and chamfer creation with handy graphical controls
  • Also in a part model, avoid errors by performing interference detection on multi-body parts

Top Ten 8 - Chamfer

9. ENHANCED MANUFACTURING EFFICIENCY WITH SOLIDWORKS CAM

  • Define multiple manufacturing setups and take advantage of the power of configurations
  • More control of feed-in/out and hole start and end positions for machining operations
  • Manual adjustment of machining features using the “Move” command

Top Ten 9 - CAM

10. REMOVED SECTION VIEWS IN DRAWINGS

  • Quickly create a section view at a slice through a model without needed construction geometry
  • Also in drawings, directly add GD&T and other tolerance information to dimension text
  • BOM exports include graphical preview images of part geometry for better communication

Top Ten 10 - drawings
