Explore unique capabilities and functions in SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual (SWMC) including the Single Modeling Environment, assembly workflows, editing capabilities, and built in tools for communication and collaboration. 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.

SOLIDWORKS Mechanical Conceptual (SWMC) can be used to develop concepts using a variety of detail. Capabilities exist to explore concept mechanisms using simple 2D sketches, 3D primitive shapes, full 3D parametric designs, or a combination of techniques. Use sketch objects to test concepts in 2D. Use primitives to quickly develop components when a simple 3D representation is required. Use parametric models to create detailed models for a design concept. Explore the power of combining parametric features with direct editing techniques for flexible options for design changes.

3DExperience-272x300 Dare to dream: collaborative design with socially connected projects that facilitate design iteration. Wouldn’t that be nice? I know that I could have personally benefited from this concept numerous times. Today we will answer some of the questions that I know a lot of you will have, because I had them myself.

Sketch Booleans can be generated from the addition, subtraction, or intersection of overlapping sketch objects. The original geometry used in creating the sketch Boolean is retained in the Design Tree and can be shown in the Work Area. Sketch Booleans can also be removed to return to the original geometry. Create sketch Booleans by adding, subtracting, and using the intersection of existing sketch objects. Use the Show Hidden Geometry command to display the underlying sketch objects. Use Remove Boolean to revert back to the original sketch geometry.
