IME’s SW2016 Top 12 Enhancements: #1 User Interface – Breadcrumbs


I just have to start the sneak peek with my favourite new feature in the SW UI – “Breadcrumbs”.
Breadcrumbs will help you access any level of your model without searching through hundreds of features in the FeatureManager design tree.



All it takes is to click on the geometry, and breadcrumbs will show its relationships to the part or assembly, allowing you to select the right feature and make changes on the spot. It also categorizes commands relevant to different features based on your selection.




I can now hide the FeatureManager design tree and increase my design screen area yet able to find and make changes to geometries easily.
