Direct mesh editing enhancements in SOLIDWORKS 2020 improve the ability to edit BREP Mesh formats like STL by introducing new tools like Fillet, Chamfer, Mutual Trim, Knit Surfaces, Delete Hole, Delete & Fill, and more.
The need to directly edit mesh geometry, like STL files, is becoming more common. SOLIDWORKS 2020 continues to expand on its already rich mesh editing feature set.
Filleting edges is now possible using the same workflow as a native SOLIDWORKS file. You can even change the fillet to a chamfer and vice versa.
SOLIDWORKS 2020 now supports more advanced editing tools which will make it easy to increase the radius of surfaces, and the new “Mutual Trim” and “Knit Surfaces” operations making changes a breeze.
It’s not uncommon for STL files to be damaged, with SOLIDWORKS 2020 you can now delete holes by right-clicking and choosing “Delete Hole” from the context menu or by simply selecting the edge and pressing delete.
SOLIDWORKS 2019 introduced “Delete Face.” SOLIDWORKS 2020 expands the capability to support “Delete and Fill” which makes removing features on parts a trivial operation.
SOLIDWORKS 2020 gives you powerful tools that make editing mesh geometry familiar and easy.
