SOLIDWORKS 2019 Technology Preview – Part 3

In case you missed PART 1 or PART 2

Day 3 at SOLIDWORKS World brings the fourth installment of the skit. The cast is working on the soundtrack, but can’t stop messing around. Megan has reached her boiling point and explodes! The team instantly snaps into shape and finish the voiceover work for Kurt’s demo.

Topology Study

  • Stress Constraint

  • Factor of Safety Constraint

  • Frequency Constraint

Mesh Slicing

  • Sketches created at intersection of mesh body and intersection plane
  • Exact or approximate sketches
  • Resulting Sketches and Planes grouped in a single folder in Feature Manager

With the final part of the soundtrack done, Megan fly’s off to put it all together, leaving the cast to continue their antics. That second script seemed quite familiar.

This brings us to the premier of DEMO-Lition, the final act of SOLIDWORKS World 2018. Everything seems to be going well UNTIL… JEREMY! Scorned by Megan, jeered by the rest of his team, Jeremy was determined to sabotage the show, get on stage, and show his talents, passion, and most importantly, all the rest of the functionality in SOLIDWORKS 2019.

  • Great for protecting intellectual property

Before Jeremy could share any more functionality coming in SOLIDWORKS 2019, Yan dragged him off the stage, reminding everyone that BETA and ALL the functionality in 2019 will be available in a few short months.

*** As a reminder, this IS a TECHNOLOGY PREVIEW and features / functionality are always changing until fully vetted and not guaranteed to be in the next release.
