SOLIDWORKS 2018 identifies Assembly Components with Geometry Errors

Article by Sanja Srzic, last updated on November 29, 2017

Checking models for geometry errors has been enhanced in SOLIDWORKS 2018.  The SOLIDWORKS Check Entity results now includes the names of assembly components that have errors such as invalid faces or edges.  Selecting the error in the result list highlights the component in the assembly design tree.

Plus the Isolate feature has been added to the Check Entity dialog, which helps locate the component in the graphics area.  In previous versions, an arrow in the graphics area pointed to the location of the error, which was often insufficient to identify components with errors in large assemblies.
