The theme this year, ”Proven Design to Manufacture Design” has showed the determination of Dassault Systemes to promote SolidWorks in the CAD community. SolidWorks 2019 has been included a new feature which is a good news to the users. This time users will have the capability of “Defeaturing Assemblies”, which they are able to remain the shape of the assembled model while concealing irrelevant details. They can also control how much defeaturing they desire on their design. This feature will come in handy for general arrangement drawings and upholding intellectual property of a company.
SolidWorks CAM 2019 could not become any smarter than before. Now, users can use Corner Slow Down and Arc Feedrate which allow slowdown when approaching vulnerable corner and arcs. You can also create a machine-specific machining strategy which provides the most effective yet efficient tool path when manufacturing.
In conjunction with the Industry 4.0, more durable and cutting-edge machine is being demanded to improve the efficiency of production. Therefore, more powerful constraints are added such as Topology Optimisation with Stress and Frequency, enhanced non-linear pin connector and the list goes on. Users can reuse the data easily with drag-and drop connectors in to Non-Linear Dynamic studies without and hassle. In a nutshell, you can set up the boundary conditions and perform intricate simulation studies easier and with greater accuracy in SolidWorks 2019.
Until next time. See ya.
