SOLIDWORKS 2020 includes capabilities that will expand your reach with CAD-centric workflows by enhancing mesh body utilization and adding new features to SOLIDWORKS CAM.
In SOLIDWORKS 2020 you can now edit, remove and add certain features directly on imported mesh files. No need to spend time translating it to a solid model first! With SOLIDWORKS 2020, front-end work with imported mesh files offer simple workflows for reverse engineering, shortened paths to Additive Manufacturing, and extended collaboration with industrial design tools.
When you think about the back-end of the design workflow, the first thing that comes to mind is probably CAM. Verifying manufacturing steps is extremely valuable and it gets even better in SOLIDWORKS CAM 2020, with the probe tool. Machinists typically use a probe on a CNC mill to automatically find fixture coordinates and measure finished features. SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional 2020 incorporates probes, which speeds up setup and improves part quality.
SOLIDWORKS 2020 is focused on doing more than just CAD design. Mesh body editing and the probe tool in SOLIDWORKS CAM help you become more efficient throughout your engineering workflow, from start to finish.
