SolidWorks 2017 is the 24th annual release of CAD (MCAD, ECAD), simulation, data management and collaboration tools that delivers the power our users need to drive innovation. In this release, 90 percent of the enhancements are driven by user feedback. Thank you to all SOLIDWORKS users worldwide who invited us into your companies, provided feedback in forums, wrote email suggestions and helped us create SOLIDWORKS 2017.
Features of SolidWorks 2017
FOCUS ON DESIGN, NOT SOFTWARE
Work smarter and get the CAD system out of your way with fewer “picks and clicks”, increased modeling flexibility, a more intuitive interface, and easier access to commands.
SOLVE COMPLEX PROBLEMS QUICKLY
Innovative design simulation makes analysis more efficient to solve complex problems, visualize and verify functionality, and find potential errors before they occur.
STREAMLINE YOUR PARALLEL DESIGN PROCESS
Communicate, collaborate, and work concurrently across teams, disciplines, customers, and vendors with mechatronic design, concurrent design, and streamlined electrical/mechanical design.
FAST-TRACK YOUR DESIGNS THROUGH MANUFACTURING
Create more detailed outputs for manufacturing and shorten product development to manufacture while you save time and reduce errors.
