Submit and/or vote for a SOLIDWORKS Enhancement Idea

Article by Rod Mackay updated November 17, 2016


Since 2001 DS SOLIDWORKS has invited users to submit and vote for a SOLIDWORKS enhancement idea for a future release of the software. Every year a top ten list of the submitted ideas is compiled and presented at SOLIDWORKS World.

This year’s SOLIDWORKS World Top Ten List is now open for submitting your ideas in preparation for SOLIDWORKS World 2017 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California from February 5—8, 2017. During the event, the Top Ten user voted ideas from the SOLIDWORKS forum will be showcased.

The SOLIDWORKS World Top Ten List is YOUR wish list: More than 90% of the enhancements in SOLIDWORKS are directly requested by customers. This is your chance to have your voice heard.
