What's New SW 2010 -> Mouse Gesture, Sketch Fillet & Split Line

Mouse Gesture
Feel cool in modeling after watching the video? Yes, the interface that you have seen is one of the user interface improvement in SolidWorks 2010 called mouse gesture. It is a shortcut way to minimize the movement of mouse as you proceed with your modeling. It is very simple to activate the function whereby you just need to hold on your right hand mouse button and move your cursor then a guide with few command will just appear on the window.

As you can see from the video, user is allowed to customized the command provided within the guide by go to Tool> Customize...then select the Mouse Gestures tab. You can assign up to eight command within a guide! Come on! work smarter and faster with the existing of mouse gestures!

Sketch Fillet & Split Line

Another good thing in SolidWorks 2010 would like to share with you all is sketch fillet and split line function! From the video, you will found that the sketch fillet is much more interactive compared with last time, it can be even applied to two discontinuous lines! For split line fuction, SolidWorks now can support multiple closed contours at once! This is very convenient for the user especially for simulation, when you need to divide the surface into few area for multiple part loading!Does it cool? =)
