What’s New in 2015 for Subscription Services Customers

The technology and manufacturing world has changed immensely. Over the past few years, we have seen a rise in technologies related to 3D-printing, connected devices, and transportation thanks to companies like Oculus Rift, Makerbot, Apple, Rethink Robotics, Uber, and Superpedestrian. The environment around us is evolving at a rapid speed and products and concepts are reaching the market at an accelerated pace, and SOLIDWORKS is no different. To keep up with new innovations, we have added new features and functions to help you stay current with market standards and demands.

Here are the top 5 new enhancements that you can now get access to with SOLIDWORKS 2015:

  1.       SOLIDWORKS Costing

With SOLIDWORKS Costing, you can understand the financial impact of your design and determine project budgets by using generated manufacturing cost estimates for machined and sheet metals. You can enter specific manufacturing costs such as materials, labor and setup and also do cost comparison for factors such as materials, vendors and thickness.

  1.       Large Design Review

You can open massive assemblies containing hundreds of components in a matter of seconds. Do a walk-through of you design and create section and snapshot views to share your design with your team.

  1.       Sheet Metal

Creating sheet metal gussets just got easier: you no longer need any workaround or tricks to add gussets to their sheet metals parts. The Property manager provides every possible scenario, meaning there is no further adjusting of the part.

  1.       Chain Component Pattern

The Chain Component Pattern feature allows you to set up patterned components along an open or closed path to simulate a chain drive or cable carrier. Simulate real-time movement to see how the energy chain will operate in your assembly design.

  1.       Assembly View in Exploded State

Take a deep-dive into your assembly design with new support for Radial Explodes and rotational explodes. Document your designs with new drawtools for sequentially ordering balloons and magnetic lines for positioning the balloons.


Get access to these enhancements and more with the new SOLIDWORKS 2015. Now is your time to upgrade and stay current with SOLIDWORKS Subscription Services, designed to help you stay current with the industry standard and current market demands.
