SolidWorks 2014 Sneak Peek: No Edge Bleed-Through for Thin Parts

SolidWorks 2014 will be officially unveiled on September 9, and while you’re waiting for the big reveal, we’re going to give you a few peeks at some of the new features.

in the past, thin parts have struggled graphically when there are internal faces in close proximity to exterior surfaces, allowing edges to show through.  Although this can be avoided by switching to a Shaded Only mode, most users prefer working in Shaded with Edges mode for improved selection and part boundary clarity.

SolidWorks 2014 now eliminates this problem with a new System Option to optimize hidden line removal for thin parts. This provides clearer visual feedback on the geometry and the exterior components. It also allows for more stunning screen captures directly from SolidWorks.
