Testing SOLIDWORKS 2016

By now you have probably already read the What’s New in SOLIDWORKS 2016 document, have watched the official launch videos and maybe even attended a Javelin Launch Event. You are probably intrigued about the new functionality and cannot wait to try it on your own.

A New Testing SOLIDWORKS 2016 Video Series

Starting today I will share with you a new series of videos, quite a bit different from the ones I mentioned above. I will take each new SOLIDWORKS 2016 enhancement I like and TEST IT TO THE LIMITS. Let’s see how deep the functionality really is?!

In the process I hope to start a conversation with you, the best SOLIDWORKS users in Canada and in the world. I am sure that together we will successfully:

  • Discover new ways for using this amazing new functionality.
  • Find workarounds where needed.
  • Brainstorm ideas for further enhancing the functionality (will submit ERs if needed).
  • Engage our friends from the SOLIDWORKS product definition team in a constructive dialogue.
  • Have fun.

Without further ado, let’s explore SOLIDWORKS 2016!

SOLIDWORKS 2016 Test #1 – The Enhanced Convert Entities Tool

SOLIDWORKS 2016 enables you to select the inner edges of a face in bulk using the Convert Entities tool. This is a great time saver compared to previous releases.

How robust is this new functionality? In this video we push it to the limits.

Note: Watch the video completely, because all workarounds are demonstrated at the end. I also suggest using the maximum resolution.
