New in SolidWorks 2012: Sheet Metal Enhancements

SolidWorks Premium 2012 gives you new tools and more control to handle the unique challenges of sheet metal design. You can design from scratch or convert your 3D model to sheet metal. Designs can be automatically flattened and documented for manufacturing, with export to CNC and manufacturing equipment. Enhancements include:

  • Improved form and punch tools enable simple drag-and-drop insertion
  • New options for flange position and flange edge give you more design flexibility
  • Precise control of edge flanges, including up-to-vertex end conditions, speed up design
