What’s New in 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Professional:

  • Assemblies…Assembly performance has never been better. Pattern-driven patterns are enhanced to give you more flexibility. A new Configuration Table enables you to do more with your design without leaving the design environment.
  • Parts…Combine the advantages of mesh data with the accuracy of parametric features with enhancements to hybrid part modeling. Create the geometry you want faster with the external threaded stud feature, bi-directional draft, and mirroring about two planes. Enhancements to Structure Systems allow you to generate weldments more rapidly.
  • Drawings…A redesigned Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing interface lets you work faster and more intuitively. You can open any drawing in Detailing mode directly from your Large Design Review assembly. Weldment cut lists are now available directly in your Bill of Material.
  • User Experience…3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Premium continues to refine your experience with delighters such as the new Command Search in Shortcut Bar. Enhancements to section view, reference geometry display, Selection Sets, and redesigned notifications will bring you a cleaner and more efficient interface.
  • Graphics…3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Premium takes another step in refining its graphics architecture to make your experience smoother. Redesigned Cosmetic threads allow you to more clearly visualize your design.
  • Import…Open DXF or DWG files into a part sketch and import even the largest STEP files more quickly. Enhanced filtering when importing IFC files allows you to bring in only what you need.
  • Visualize…For R2022x GA, improvements to animation capabilities such as multiple camera tracks, grouping and re-ordering, and camera path give you highly requested capabilities to bring your products to life. With new Instancing, you have more freedom to create and control patterns. Enhance realism with the new Shadow Catcher feature.
  • Routing…For R2022x GA, 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Premium significantly accelerates the routing of 3D wires, cables, and harnesses in your product so you can evaluate more ideas during the design cycle. Refinements to Bend Radius control help you avoid errors which could result in incorrect wire length calculations and electrical failures.
