SolidWorks 2015: 3D Print from SolidWorks!

One of the new features I really like is the new Intergrated 3D Printer Support in SolidWorks 2015. You can click Print3D from the Property Manager and select your 3D printer from the dropdown list, just like how you normally print a document!

You can choose the printing options like print resolution, optional addition of supports and rafts, volume fill percentage. You can also check if your part fits within the print volume of the printer. 



Our engineers can now print from their workstation without needing to go down to the 3D printer lab with their STL file!

Integrated 3D Printer Support in SOLIDWORKS 2015 makes printing directly to your 3D Printer simple and fast.  Like most tools in SOLIDWORKS, all the controls are available and simple to understand right from the Property Manager when you choose Print3D.  Just select your 3D Printer from the drop-down list and you have direct control over print resolution, the optional addition of supports and rafts, volume fill percentage and determine if your part fits within the print volume of your 3D Printer.  All of this, without the need for any additional 3rd party software! - See more at: http://blogs.solidworks.com/solidworksblog/2014/09/sneak-peek-15-features-coming-solidworks-2015-3d-printing-support.html#sthash.AuzSFit5.dpuf

SolidWorks 2015 is Here!

Are you excited to see What's New in SolidWorks 2015? 

I know I am! We have gathered someFeatures Sneak Peek:

Sneak Peek 1: 
Profile Center Mate, one of the new features in SOLIDWORKS 2015 is sure to be a favorite of any user who creates Assemblies on a regular basis. The Profile Center Mate locates the centers of two items to each other regardless of their size or shape. A few options for the new mate include an offset and the ability to change the orientation in 90 degree increments. The best part about this mate is, if the size or location of the selection is changed, the Profile Center mate maintains the intelligence to keep them centered on one another!

Sneak Peek 2: 
Customizable Context-Sensitive Toolbars have been the daydreams of many users since they were first introduced.  Context sensitive toolbars are the popup toolbars that appear whenever you select anything in SOLIDWORKS.  You may notice that SOLIDWORKS has always done a great job of providing some of the most commonly used tools for the selected object (Face, Edge, Vertex, etc.), but have you ever thought to yourself, “it would be nice to add the Hole Wizard Button to the context sensitive toolbar for Face”?

Sneak Peek 3:
SOLIDWORKS Treehouse is a new standalone application for building and managing assembly structures using an intuitive and simple graphical interface.  Long time users of SOLIDWORKS may remember it’s early beginnings when it was previewed several years ago.  Users asked to bring this back as a full-fledged feature in SOLIDWORKS, and we listened.

More to Come :)

Stay Tuned to the SolidWorks Innovation Day this October!!

The Profile Center Mate can also be used to fully locate round items such as screws. The mate locks two circular profiles to each other and their rotation can be locked at the same time as well. This means it only requires a single mate to fully locate a screw now. This is a huge time saver and can help to minimize the number of mates in an assembly, and I look forward to using it regularly myself.
