Exploring the SOLIDWORKS Defeature Tool

The SOLIDWORKS Defeature tool is a great tool used to remove details from assemblies, multibody parts, and single-body parts. This tool can be a great solution for simplifying large assemblies with many components such as bolts with threads.

TriMech Solutions Consultant, Neil Brayman, demonstrates the SOLIDWORKS Defeature tool and shows you how to simplify your models for whatever application is needed. The simplification of this geometry allows for smoother use of the software. It is also used for proprietary reasons when you share your model outside of your organization and don’t want to release confidential design details.
