See Top 10 New Features of SOLIDWORKS 2016

1.SOLIDWORKS Visualize – Bring Your Designs to Life

Improved functionality for media-ready images, movies and immersive content
Use both CPU and GPU to speed up rendering — less time to quality result
Included with SOLIDWORKS 2016 Professional and Premium
2.Enhanced Part Modeling Capabilities

Thread Wizard tool to create internal and external threads
Bi-directional sweep and curvature continuous edge fillets
Flatten surface includes flattening of curves
Sheet Metal allows cuts in the bend area of swept flange and edge flanges can now be longer than the attachment edge
3.Streamlined Assembly Development

Component preview window for mate selections
Mate Controller for fast capture and recall of mate positions
Replace multiple failed mate references in one step
Copy multiple components and retain mates
4.Faster 2D Drawing Creation

Automatic Border tool controls sheet format border
New model Break View tool
Turn off view scale for center marks and other detailing improvements
5.“Drawingless” Manufacturing Enhanced

Create DimXpert dimensions in Assembly
Display and associate model coordinate systems automatically
Publish and print multiple sheets, tables, and viewports in 3D PDF
6.Improved Electrical Design and Communication

Streamlined workflow with contextual information display
SOLIDWORKS Electrical for DraftSight® add-in with real-time redline, annotation, and reporting
7.Making Design Easier

New “breadcrumbs” tracking/selection of items in model hierarchy
Better support for high-resolution monitors and expandable Property Manager input panels
Sketch: dynamically manipulate dimensioned sketch entities
My.SOLIDWORKS: Search function available inside SOLIDWORKS 2016

8.Simplifying Design Validation

Simulation: Find unconstrained degrees of freedom, turn constraints on and off, and perform mesh sectioning
Plastics: Enhanced Solver performance and improved indirect flow front tracking
Flow: Improved mesh refinement controls and transient solver speed
9.Connecting Design and Manufacturing

3D Printing: 3D print preview using textures and show areas requiring supports
Inspection: OCR Editor to customize and improve optical character recognition dictionaries and output horizontal inspection reports
Costing: Cost an entire assembly, nesting for sheet metal, and rules to modify settings automatically
Compare Geometry: Save geometry differences directly into either model being compared
10.Expanded Communication and Collaboration
