SOLIDWORKS 2010: Available to download now!

Tuesday October 20, 2009 at 8:31pm
 
SOLIDWORKS 2010, the 18th version of the MCAD software was released today. It is a slight change of focus from what has been seen in the past. Previous versions of SOLIDWORKS have seen unprecedented levels of new tools and features which have grown into the vast and comprehensive set  available today.

Earlier this year, SOLIDWORKS reached a major milestone of 1,000,000 licenses sold. With such a large customer base, with a very large percentage of these users actively engaged in the SOLIDWORKS community, it would not be fair to keep adding new "niche" features to satisfy some very narrow criteria. SOLIDWORKS 2010, takes a look at the core tools which everyone uses, every day, and has refined, tuned and improved these. The algorithms used have been streamlined making them faster and more efficient. You will notice lots of small, but significant enhancements to several regularly used commands allowing you to work smarter and faster.

Things which were not possible in 2009 and earlier, such as creating a mirrored version of a part and having the handed version in the same part file but a different configuration, complete customisation of the heads up display toolbar, multi-body sheet metal parts, might not sound like ground-breaking new technology but they all add up to a much nicer user experience.

However, there is still a wealth of new innovations in SOLIDWORKS 2010. Just one example of this is SustainabilityXpress. Once again SOLIDWORKS leads the way, bringing technology never before seen associated with CAD, brought to your finger tips.

See for yourself, download it now. Simply go to Help > Check for Updates in SOLIDWORKS 2009.
