Every year SOLIDWORKS releases a new version of its flagship product, and last year, a new tradition was born here on the Blogs. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be taking a Sneak Peek at 15 new features here on the SOLIDWORKS Blog, and then we’ll be following them up with short, detailed videos on the functionality over on the SOLIDWORKS Tech Blog beginning September 23rd. Until then, you can learn more about SOLIDWORKS 2016 by clicking the banner above and checking out the Launch Site.
Segment Tool Sketch Relations
You can use the Segment tool to create equal length segments in arcs and circles. In an open sketch of an arc or circle, click Segment (Sketch toolbar) or Tools >Sketch Tools > Segment. In the PropertyManager, under Segment Parameters, select Sketch segments. When you use the Sketch segments option on arcs or circles, an Equal Length relation is applied to the sketch segments.
If you want to see more of the 15 Features Coming in SOLIDWORKS 2016 blog series, you can check in on the announcement post from August 3, 2015 where we will be updating and adding links to each of these posts as they go live. Thanks for reading!
