SolidWorks 2017 is the leading 3D software to deliver solutions for the engineering industry. The most important changes can be seen in the user interface.SolidWorks 2017 SP1 offers many enhancements, most of which are created in direct response to customer service requests. This publication focuses on helping you do your job faster and easier, allowing you to:
- Design. Drive innovation with advanced and accurate modelling capabilities. Work faster with
More control and less overhead.
- Validate. Solve complex drawbacks and validate your designs with confidence and simplicity.
- Increase productivity while gaining greater insight into design performance.
- Cooperate. Accelerate new product innovation with effective content exchange
- Complete supply chain. Take advantage of existing content and also involve each and every member of the team more
- Build. Incorporate an absolutely integrated manufacturing strategy based on models. Use your CAD in 3D models, including
- dimensions, tolerances, annotations, tables and also electrical information to create your manufacturing deliveries.
- Manage. Run a multidisciplinary product data management workflow. Collect and
- Manage each and everyone of the design data throughout the company.
SolidWorks 2017 SP1
SOLIDWORKS 3D INTERCONNECT Open proprietary 3D CAD data directly on SOLIDWORKS including Creo®, CATIA® V5, SolidEdge®, NX ™ and also Inventor® and preserve associativity to the original file.
IMPROVE THE ASSEMBLY PERFORMANCE
Replace the subset with part of multiple bodies and hold references; Replace missing references to time.
- MOST POWERFUL MODELING TOOLS
- The new Advanced Hole Wizard creates/resumes custom holes.
- Wrap function now for any surface; Offset 3D curve on the surface with
- Multiple faces.
- Sheet metal support for 3 corner corners.
RECOMMENDATIONS AND ANIMATIONS FOR A REINFORCEMENT TO VISUALIZE
- New “Visualize Boost”: Simplified network performance for fast processing.
- Import animations and motion studies.
- Map SolidWorks 2017 navigation camera and fast access keys.
- Support for HTC® Vive ™, Oculus, Google® Cardboard, Samsung.
FASTER 2D DRAWING CREATION
- Reference and link to BOM table cell elements in annotations.
- Spectacles of drawing of parametric form without the model.
- Predefined layers.
CAPACITIES EXPANDED FOR THE BASIC DEFINITION MODEL
- Match geometry and 3D PMI between 2 revisions.
- Definition of DimXpert 3D PMI more easily for the parts written.
- Export STEP two hundred and forty-two with 3D PMI for machining CAM and CMM.
- Attach multiple files to 3D PDF to create technical data (TDP).
ELECTRICITY / ELECTRONIC DESIGN
- Electrical: Automatic creation of diagrams from a spreadsheet.
- Electrical: Composite parts – accessories.
- PCB: Unified design environment between schematic editing, dashboard design and 3D predisposition.
SIMPLIFICATION OF DESIGN VALIDATION
- Simulation: Teaching simulation results in the SOLIDWORKS model; Arc length control for nonlinear contact.
- Plastics: The partial mass can be used apart from the freezing time determination temperature and the gate pressure maintenance.
- Flow: The parametric study now leaves the multi-parameter optimization.
DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING INTEGRATION
- 3D Printing: Import / Export 3MF. Import mesh data.
- Inspection: Manual and selective ballooning.
- Costing: Instant estimates from manufacturers using My.SolidWorks
- Manufacturing Network.
IMPROVED DATA MANAGEMENT AND COLLABORATION
