Published on

SolidWorks capabilities that help meet the challenges of producing complex aerospace and defense equipment include:

• Superior large assembly performance
• Read/write UG and Catia files with Datakit
• Configuration management for parts and assemblies
• Fully associative top-down and bottom-up design techniques
• Advanced surface and sheet metal design tools for superior enclosure development
• Superior tools for designing and documenting routed systems such as piping, tubing, pneumatics, hydraulics, and electric cabling
• Fully integrated Finite Element Analysis software
• Collaboration tools like eDrawings and Enterprise Data Management for sharing designs across sites and with companies
• An extensive selection of fully integrated Partner Solutions

  • Configurations allow you to create multiple variations of a part or assembly model within a single document. Configurations provide a convenient way to develop and manage families of models with different dimensions, components, or other parameters. To create a configuration, you specify a name and properties, then you modify the model to create the design variations you want. In part documents, configurations allow you to create families of parts with different dimensions, features, and properties, including custom properties. In assembly documents, configurations allow you to create: simplified versions of the design by suppressing components. families of assemblies with different configurations of the components, different parameters for assembly features, different dimensions, or configuration-specific custom properties. In drawing documents, you can display views of the configurations you create in part and assembly documents.
  • In parts, you can configure: Dimensions of features and sketches Suppression states of features and sketches Material Custom properties
  • In parts, you can configure: Dimensions of features and sketches Suppression states of features and sketches Material Custom properties
  • Reference Planes Work like familiar and easy to use Mates Doubles the amount of planes that you can create in 1 step
