3D mechanical design software.
* tools for sheet metal and machine designers
SolidWorks 2006 has been upgraded with more than 200 user-requested enhancements that include new approaches to design analysis and validation. One example is Smart Components, which automatically inserts parts with corresponding mounting features into new designs, then re-sizes the parts to meet the diameters of the mating parts. For designers of consumer products, the software has Snap Hook, Snap Groove and Mounting Boss tools to create often-used plastic part design elements with a single command. A Gauge Table can be set up in Excel with unique company standards for sheet metal design. Machine designers can combine multiple sketch entities into blocks that behave as single parts for fit and function testing. In addition, a Variable Pitch Helix tool helps in design of feed and packaging systems by controlling shuttle speed.
