SOLIDWORKS is the most feature-rich CAD solution available, but that doesn’t mean significant improvements can’t still be made. SOLIDWORKS 2023 expands the capabilities of existing features to make you more productive. 

Allowance of Library Feature Errors

When you insert a library feature into a model and get error messages, you can keep the results to view and manually repair the errors.


In the warning message, click Yes to keep the results. In the Feature Manager design tree, you can manually repair the library feature or click Undo to remove it. If you click No in the warning message, in the Library Feature Property Manager, you can modify the selections or click to restore the Feature Manager design tree without the library feature.

Previously, the warning message blocked you from inserting library features that generated errors.

Dimension Support for the Move/Copy Body Command

When you use the Move/Copy Body command, you can control the Translate and Rotate values with equations. You can add these equations to a design table and control them there. You can double-click the dimensions in the graphics area and specify them using the Modify dialog box.

Under Rotate, you can select Euler’s angular rotation and specify values for Yaw (side-to-side), Pitch (up-down), and Roll (twist). This method delivers the same resulting rotation regardless of the order in which you specify these values.


If models have configurations, you can specify the configurations to which the dimensions apply for Translate and for Rotate when you select the Euler method of angular dimensions.

Section View through Axis


You can define a section view through an axis without constraining it to a secondary point, such as a vertex. Previously, a secondary selection was mandatory. When you click Plane about an axis, you can click Reverse Section Direction to flip the section view across the created plane.

Single-Line Fonts for Wrap Features


You can create wrap features from sketches that use single-line fonts when you select Scribe for Wrap Type in the Wrap Property Manager. Previously, wrap features did not support single-line fonts.

Single-line fonts are also called stick fonts. This functionality is particularly helpful for users who want to engrave stick fonts on parts.
