Logopress3 has flawless integration with SolidWorks, with a simple and straightforward interface, which means a shorter learning curve. Logopress3 was the first product in the world to receive SolidWorks Gold Certification without requiring any changes whatsoever.
In only a few mouse clicks you can unfold your part and then model the intermediate stages that will allow defining the process that will become your strip layout. This can be done from a native SolidWorks model or from an imported model from any other cad system, without preparing it in any specific way.
Mastercam for SolidWorks includes a suite of the most sought-after cutting strategies, including High Speed Machining (HSM) toolpaths. In addition, Mastercam for SolidWorks delivers a powerful set of automated toolpaths that get parts off the machine faster, with little or no handwork.
nPower Power Surfacing is a revolutionary SolidWorks plugin product that will fundamentally change the way that engineers and designers design parts in SolidWorks. Power Surfacing makes it easy and fun to design complex free form aesthetically pleasing Class A surfaces in SolidWorks. No longer will you have to fight with patching a set of trimmed surfaces together to form complex curved shapes; manipulating Power Surfacing parts is as simple as modeling with clay.
A data vault powered by Microsoft SQL guarantees all information is securely stored and indexed for fast retrieval by authorized users within your company. Easy to implement and fully customizable, SolidWorks EPDM efficiently guides your product teams through your development processes, ensuring people have access to the right information at the right time. Localized vault replication and support of multiple CAD applications provides unmatched productivity, no matter the size, distribution, and diversity of your organization.
SOLIDWORKS 2016 covers all comprehensive aspects of the product development process with an intuitive, integrated 3D development environment that includes 3D design, simulation, electrical design, product data management and technical communication. In addition, starting with the new Collaborative Sharing feature, SOLIDWORKS 2016 enables access to Dassault Systemes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and its cloud-based capabilities. Designers and engineers can span multiple disciplines with ease, shortening the design cycle, increasing productivity and collaborating to deliver innovative products to market faster.
New user interface, new tools, and new process enhancements combine to help you get your work done faster and easier than ever before with the design and development solution chosen by millions of users worldwide.
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.
What's New in 2016?
SPEED UP YOUR DESIGN PROCESS
SOLIDWORKS speeds up your design process, keeps you focused on your work, and helps reduce time and effort to achieve your desired geometry.
- Automatically create swept circular profiles in sections, with bi-directional sweeps in either or both directions with the Sweep command
Enhancements to the User Interface and workflows focus you on design (not the design tool) to increase productivity. The new look and feel is consistent across all of the SOLIDWORKS applications, for easy transition between tools.
- Quickly and easily access any model without viewing the Feature Tree with new breadcrumbs
SOLIDWORKS design tools can help you conceptualize, visualize, test, and document your 3D designs, getting your products to market faster. Check out how our entire product portfolio works together to design different components of a smart refrigerator.
VERIFY DESIGN PERFORMANCE
SOLIDWORKS 2016 Simulation tools deliver more control and greater insight to verify design performance. Ensure sufficient detail in mesh density to accurately account for stress variations, to be confident in resulting performance data.
- Improved control over operation sequencing, part movements, and mesh quality for detailed design simulations
Many industries require flat patterns of complex geometry for manufacturing. Now you can flatten any surface and take the guesswork out of creating and validating flattened shapes.
- Quickly and easily flatten even the most complex geometry
ANIMATE ASSEMBLY MOTION
New Mate Controller simplifies manipulation of assemblies with moving components, even those with many degrees of freedom, creating multiple solutions. Similar to a game controller, the new Mate Controller is an easy, intuitive way to create and animate complicated assembly motion.
- Maintain precise control of the position for various components
Downstream visualization of information is critical to engineering. eDrawings® improves collaboration and communication of designs throughout product development.
- Consistently measure with eDrawings to automatically use the same units as in the original document
The "camera" for SOLIDWORKS and other CAD data
In order to quickly and easily create marketing quality images, SOLIDWORKS Professional and Premium now come bundled with SOLIDWORKS Visualize (Formerly Bunkspeed). This new pairing supports an enhanced workflow to get from CAD to "Photo" in just five fun steps.
- Intuitively drag/drop stunning and ready-to-use materials, environments, and backgrounds into your scene
COMMUNICATE WITH MANUFACTURING
Manufacturers look to optimize how they work with suppliers. New enhancements to SOLIDWORKS MBD help you quickly and accurately communicate your design with downstream manufacturing operations.
- Create dimensions quickly by automatically aligning selected edges horizontally or vertically
