In this edition of Javelin’s SOLIDWORKS 2019 video series, Application Engineer; Colin Murphy, highlights the new enhancements in SOLIDWORKS 2019 defeaturing! Learn the new functions and uses it offers for your model or assembly.
Why use the defeature tool?
Fully detailed models have their benefits such as accurate BOMs, machining instructions, precise simulations, and true to life renders. As great as fully featured models and assemblies are, in some scenarios a defeatured version has benefits of it’s own. For example, the performance of large assembly with hundreds of iterations of the same bolt can be greatly improved by removing the threads of that bolt. This saves the assembly from generating the graphic triangles of the threads (of the hundreds of iterations) that can’t be seen anyways. Defeaturing models is also useful for proprietary reasons like sharing models outside of the organization. Defeaturing models is simple and fast so you can reduce your models for whatever function is required.
Why you should use the defeature tool in SOLIDWORKS 2019 is included with SOLIDWORKS Premium 2019 software from Javelin.
SOLIDWORKS Premium software gives you powerful, easy-to-use functionality that automates tasks, streamlines workflows, and helps you quickly define and validate the form, fit, and function of your design. Part of the SOLIDWORKS product development solution.
Including tools for design, simulation, sustainability, communication and data management—SOLIDWORKS Premium empowers innovative design with specific tools that help you work more efficiently so you can make better design decisions.
