What’s New In SOLIDWORKS 2020-3D CAD

Large Assembly Drawings for Working Faster

  • Detailing Mode: Open drawings in a matter of seconds
    while maintaining the ability to add and edit annotations.
  • Graphics Acceleration for Drawings: Improve frame rates
    when panning and zooming within drawings with
    hardware-accelerated rendering.



Faster Assembly Design

  • Envelope Publisher: Include components from a top-level
    assembly as envelopes in a sub-assembly.
  • Large Design Review: Create mates to the reference
    geometry of components, create and edit linear and
    circular component patterns, edit pattern-driven and
    sketch-driven component patterns

Flexible Components

  • Make Part Flexible: Display the same part in different
    conditions in the same assembly. For example, show a
    spring compressed and at full length in the same assembly


Faster Sketching

  • Silhouette Entities: Create multiple sketch entities by
    projecting the outline of component bodies onto a parallel
    sketch plane.
  • Torsion Continuity Relation: Achieve G3 curvature between
    sketched curves, thereby allowing a seamless transition.

Improved Design Experience

  • 3D Printing Access an extensive list of commercially available 3D printer volumes and creates slices for 3D printing directly from SOLIDWORKS geometry.
