SolidWorks 2013 Sneak Peek: Mates in Mirrored Subassemblies

Here’s yet another new feature for 2013. When you create an opposite-hand version while mirroring a subassembly, all the standard mates in  the subassembly are mirrored as well. Previously, standard mates within the subassembly that mated to the default planes or origin of the subassembly were not created.

You can visit our new SolidWorks 2013 website to see all the major updates when it launches on September 10. In the meantime, if you want to learn more about how SolidWorks can help your business, check out the videos in our Demo library.

    Simply Amazing. It is already a dynamite program and now there seems to be many new improvements on the ease of use, which works great for me. This helps me to teach the program at all age levels. I am always pleasantly surprised at what comes with each release. Great job.
