New in SolidWorks 2013: Conic Sketch

SolidWorks 2013 introduces the ability to create smooth transitions between existing geometries using true conic surfacing. Using the new conic sketch feature, you can

  • Create complex or hybrid models faster using surfaces
  • Make a parabola, ellipse, or hyperbola tangent to existing geometry
  • Use rho value for more precise control
  • Easily create bridge curves between existing geometry without using splines
