WHAT’S NEW IN SOLIDWORKS 2020—3D CAD 


1、Large Assembly Drawings for Working Faster
· Detailing Mode: Open drawings in a matter of seconds while maintaining the ability to add and edit annotations.
· Graphics Acceleration for Drawings: Improve frame rates when panning and zooming within drawings with hardware-accelerated rendering.
Benefi ts 
Work faster on drawings with many sheets, confi gurations, and resource-intensive views.

2、Faster Assembly Design
· Envelope Publisher: Include components from a top-level assembly as envelopes in a subassembly.
· Large Design Review: Create mates to the reference geometry of components, create and edit linear and circular component patterns, edit pattern-driven and sketch-driven component patterns.
Benefi ts
Speed up assembly design and reduce visual clutter.

3、Flexible Components
· Make Part Flexible: Display the same part in different conditions in the same assembly. For example, show a spring compressed and at full length in the same assembly.
Benefi ts
Create assembly designs faster while maintaining an accurate bill of materials.

4、Faster Sketching
·  Silhouette Entities: Create multiple sketch entities by projecting the outline of component bodies onto a parallel sketch plane.
· Torsion Continuity Relation: Achieve G3 curvature between sketched curves, thereby allowing a seamless transition.
Benefi ts
Create robust sketches faster.

5、Faster Calculations and Improved Accuracy for Simulation
· Speed and Accuracy: Speed up analysis and improve accuracy by combining linear and quadratic elements in the same simulation study.
· Pin and Bolt Connectors: Deform faces attached to Pin and Bolt connectors.
· Beam Models: Import temperatures to perform a stress analysis after running a thermal analysis on a model with beams.
Benefi ts
Run faster calculations and better simulation of real-world behavior.

6、Improved Design Experience
· 3D Printing: Access an extensive list of commercially available 3D printer volumes and create slices for 3D printing directly from SOLIDWORKS® geometry.
Benefi ts
Save time and simplify design tasks.

7、Expanded Interoperability with 3D Interconnect
· Drag and Drop into SOLIDWORKS: Drag a non-native SOLIDWORKS fi le into an active part or assembly.
· New File Types: Work with BREP data from DXF?/DWG fi les and IFC fi les.
Benefi ts
Collaborate with more data sources easily.

8、More Flexibility for Surfacing
· Offset Surface: Identify faces on a surface that cannot be offset, and create an offset surface without them.
· Thicken: Specify more types of surface direction vectors (other than normal) to a face.
Benefi ts
Simplify and speed up your design with more robust, fl exible surface options.

9、Improvements to SOLIDWORKS Visualize
· XR Exporter: Easily convert your Visualize fi les to AR/VR experiences.
· PDM Integration: Manage your fi les more easily with SOLIDWORKS PDM integration.
Benefi ts
Enhance fl exibility with support of new fi le formats and customizable materials.

10、Connected Design-to-Manufacturing Ecosystem in the Cloud
· Direct Connection: Easily connect SOLIDWORKS 2020 with key tools through the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE® platform.
· Data Sharing and Collaboration: Share models back and forth between SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE tools. Collaborate in real time from anywhere and on any device.
· Extended Workfl ows: Easily extend your design ecosystem with new capabilities such as subdivisional modeling, conceptual design, and product lifecycle and project management in the cloud.
Benefi ts
Enable seamless product development workfl ows and easily extend them with new tools as your business needs evolve
