SWV Watch

Something that has really caught my interest this year is the new SOLIDWORKS Visualize product.  I’ve been using the beta for a couple of months and official release is to be announced during SOLIDWORKS World 2016.  I know there are a number of breakout sessions dedicated to SOLIDWORKS Visualize and I’m sure more Visualize information will be available at World.  I do have an interview setup with the SOLIDWORKS Visualize team and will post the interview during the conference so be on the look out.

SolidWorks 2015, Exploded View Enhancements

Rendered exploded views and animations are some of my most requested projects.  Depending on the complexity of the model, exploded views can be time consuming to set up.  Exploded view creation enhancements found in SolidWorks 2015 can make exploded view setup easier and faster.  The faster I can setup the exploded view the faster I can start rendering and animation.  That’s when the real fun begins.


SolidWorks 2015, Selection Sets

SolidWorks 2015 has added new functionality named “selection sets”.  Selection sets allow a user to group a collection of items (faces, edges, features, sketches, etc.) into one selection that can be recalled at any time.  It’s a very nice tool for model creation and it also has some advantages in PhotoView 360.  Watch the video to learn more.


SolidWorks 2015, Render Region

SolidWorks 2015 was released on September, 9th.  I don’t believe the DVD’s have shipped yet but customers on subscription can download SP 0.0 at the customer portal.  I just installed SolidWorks 2015 SP0.0 myself a few days ago and thought I’d share some new functionality videos with you.  This first video covers “render region” and its really the only new feature in SolidWorks 2015 specific to PhotoView 360.
