How can I increase my productivity in SOLIDWORKS?

SOLIDWORKS productivity software for design comparison.

SOLIDWORKS Utilities finds differences between two versions of the same part quickly and easily, and identifies and highlights problematic geometry in a part. It can also find, modify, and suppress features within a model. SOLIDWORKS Utilities features six categories of functionality, along with customised HTML reporting and full-integration with SOLIDWORKS.

All of which makes it a significant productivity tool. It can certainly give you the added capabilities you need to work efficiently in any environment that requires multiple design changes and revisions, including your company’s ECO process.

Key Features
Speed product development by using a variety of SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD tools designed to help make users more productive. Specific functionality includes:
  • Thickness Analysis - Determines thin and thick regions of a part and the thickness of a part within a specified range of values.
  • Compare Geometry - Enables you to quickly determine what geometry is different between two designs using Face Comparison, Geometry Comparison, or View Synchronisation
  • Compare Features - Highlights what model features are different between two designs and color-codes them from easy identification. A list of differences can be generated
  • Compare BOMs - Compares bill of material (BOM) tables from two SOLIDWORKS assembly or drawing documents, listing missing columns and rows, extra columns and rows, and failed rows.
  • Compare Document - Allows you to easily compare the properties of 2 SOLIDWORKS documents
  • Any standard hole types, such as simple, tapered, and counterbored
  • Feature Paint - Allows you to apply existing feature parameters and attributes from one feature to another
  • Format Paint - Allows you to quickly apply existing dimension and annotation formatting properties to dimensions and annotations in the current document or another document
  • Geometry Analysis - Helps you identify and highlight problematic imported geometry in a part based on user-specified parameters such as minimum fillet radius, minimum sliver face size, etc.
  • Find/Modify - Finds a set of features in a part that satisfy specified parameter conditions and edits them in a batch mode.
  • Symmetry Check - Checks automatically for geometric symmetry in parts and assemblies about a plane and identifies symmetrical, asymmetrical, and unique faces. Automatic Symmetry Check reduces a part to its smallest repeatable symmetrical body—especially useful when running analyses using simulation software.
  • Report Manager - Manages reports generated by the Geometry Analysis, Compare Geometry, Compare Features, Compare Documents, Compare BOMs, Symmetry Check, and Thickness Analysis utilities.
  • Simplify - Creates simplified configurations of a part or assembly to perform analysis.
  • Power Select - Lets you select edges, loops, faces, and features based on geometric criteria
  • Power Editing - Lets you find, modify, and suppress features within a model based on their parameters. Power editing also lets you create simplified versions of parts and assemblies by locating and suppressing small features
  • Find/Replace Annotations - Quickly find and replace annotations anywhere in parts, assemblies and drawings
