New in SolidWorks 2014: Quick Volume-Cut Costing

CostingSolidWorks 2014 includes some great updates to the Costing features introduced a few years ago. Now you can quickly calculate machining costs for a part—without having to set up templates. A simple one-click method extracts a rough cost estimate, and you can make a calculation based on “cost per volume” for all machining operations, instead of feature recognition. This lets you quickly estimate costs to keep projects within budget.

You can learn more about this and other new features on our SolidWorks 2014 launch website.
