3D Design with SolidWorks
What's new in SolidWorks 2008

    * Streamlined User Interface.
       Interface has been improved to decrease mouse travel and increase the screen real estate
       available for design.
    * SWIFT Instant3D.
       Instant3D helps user design like an expert. There are no dialogs or input fields, users simply
       select faces, drag, and snap them to onscreen rulers to get exact values.
    * SWIFT DimExpert.
       Allows a user to automatically dimension 3D models for manufacturing.
    * Large Assembly Management Tools.
       Allows users to quickly view large assemblies and then, on-the-fly, select components to work
       without having to load unnecessary components in to memory.
    * Design Clipart.
       Allows users to reuse views, blocks, tables, and even images from AutoCAD files, automatically
       dissects AutoCAD and SolidWorks files and extracts data so it is reusable.
    * DriveWorksXpress.
       Is a design automation tool that automatically generates parts, assemblies and drawings.
    * TolAnalyst.
       Is a tolerance analysis tool that determines the effect that tolerances have on parts and
    * DFMXpress.

What's new in SolidWorks 2009

    * Large Assembly Handling Improvements.
       Enhancements have been made to improve performance for a very large and complex assemblies.
    * SpeedPak Technology.
       SpeedPak creates a simplified reprezentation of an assembly without losing references.
       Use SpeedPak when you want to insert a complex large assembly into a higher level assembly.
    * Opening Multi-sheet Drawings in Quick View.
       You can now open multi-sheet drawings quickly by viewing most sheets in Quick view, wich
       is a read-only mode that provides a simplified drawing representation.
    * Additional Drawing Enhancements.
       Support for customized drawing standards, extensive BOM editing on a drawing, improved
       detail positioning control, custom line thicknesses and styles, and detailing for sketch slots.
    * Dimension Jog.
       Enables you to jog an extension line for a dimension that is very close to a corresponding
       extension line.
    * Convert Solid-to-Sheet Metal.
       You can design a solid part to fit the space required, then specify the material thickness,
       bend edges, and the required rips. SolidWorks automatically converts the part to sheet metal.
    * Assembly Clearance Verification.
       Clearance verification enables you to check the spacing between selected components in an
       assembly and report clearances that fail to meet the minimum value specified.

What's new in SolidWorks 2010

   1. User interface.
    * Mouse gesture support
        You can use a mouse gesture as a shortcut to execute a command, similar to a keyboard
        shortcut. To activate a mouse gesture, from the graphics area, right-click and drag in one of eight
        directions: Straight up or down, straight left or right, or along a diagonal.

   2. Assembly.

        * Assembly Visualization
        This tool provides different ways to display and sort an assembly's components in a list and in the
        graphics area. In the graphics area, the software applies colors to the components based on the
        value of the property you are sorting by. The colors help you to visualize the relative value of the
        property for each component.

        * Mirror Components
        A MirrorComponent feature is added to the FeatureManager design tree to maintain the position of
        mirrored components relative to seed components. You can create an opposite-hand version as a
        derived configuration of the component you are mirroring.
   3. Configurations
       The Modify Configurations dialog box has been enhanced. Now you can: rename features and
        dimensions, add and remove feature parameters from the table, configure the material of parts,
        create, edit, and delete configuration-specific custom properties, unconfigure parameters, save
        views of the table, rearrange columns in the table, edit and navigate the table similarly to how
        you would in Microsoft Excel

   4. Detailing

    * Rapid Dimension
    You can use the rapid dimension manipulator to place dimensions so they are evenly spaced and
    easier to read. The rapid dimension manipulator appears when you insert dimensions in drawing
    views. Use the manipulator to place dimensions at evenly spaced intervals. For example, if you
    insert a dimension between two dimensions, the new dimension is spaced evenly between them.

    * Dimension Palette
    The dimension palette appears when you insert or select a dimension so you can easily change
    the dimension's properties and formatting. You can change the tolerance, precision, style, text
    and other formatting options in the palette without going to the PropertyManager.

   5. Drawings
    *Drawing Views of Multibody Part
    You can create Standard 3 Views and model views of multibody parts. For flat patterns of multibody
    sheet metal parts, you can use one body per view.

   6. Sheet Metal

    * Multibody Sheet Metal Parts
    Now SolidWorks allow you to create complex sheet metal designs. Multibody sheet metal parts
    can consist of multiple sheet metal parts or a combination of sheet metal and weldment parts.
    You can merge two parallel bodies of the same thickness by inserting an edge flange between them.

    * Creating a Mirrored Sheet Metal Part
    The Mirror Part command now supports sheet metal parts. When you mirror a sheet metal part,
    a new part is created. You can copy the features of the original part to the mirrored part by
    breaking the link to the original part. The copied sheet metal features are added to the FeatureManager
    design tree of the new part.

What's new in SolidWorks 2011

   1. Model Display

        * DisplayManager. DisplayManager is the central location for managing appearances, decals,
          scenes, cameras, lights, and Walk Through. Use the DisplayManager to view, edit, and delete
          display items applied to the current model.
        * PhotoView 360. PhotoView 360 is now the standard photorealistic rendering solution for
          SolidWorks (available in SolidWorks Professional and SolidWorks Premium). You can preview
          a rendering of the current model within the SolidWorks graphics area.

   2. Parts and Features

        * Defeature for Parts. You can remove details from a part and save the results to a new file
          in which the details are replaced by dumb solids.
        * Sharing Equations Among Models. You can share equations and global variables among
          models. You can export selected equations and variables from a model to an external text (.txt)
          file. Then you import information from the text file into other models. You can choose to link
          models to the text file, so that changes you make in the text file update the equations and
          variables in the models.
        * Suppression States of Features and Components. You can use equations to control
          the suppression state of part features and assembly components (you can use the Visual
          Basic IIf function to specify when to suppress or unsuppress a feature or component).

   3. Assemblies

        * Fillets and Chamfers. In assemblies, you can create fillets and chamfers, which are useful
          for weld preparation;
        * Weld Bead for assemblies. You can add simplified weld beads to assemblies (not as
          components of the assembly like in previous versions of SolidWorks);
        * Defeature for Assemblies. you can remove details from a part or assembly and save the
          results to a new file in which the details are replaced by dumb solids and you can then share
          the new file without revealing all the design details of the model;

   4. Drawings and Detailing

        * Alignment Options for Dimension. Palette Alignment tools are available on the dimension
          palette when you select more than one dimension. Dimension Palette rollover button contains:
          Auto Arrange Dimensions, Space Evenly Linear/Radial, Align Collinear, Align Stagger, Top
          Justify Dimension Text, Bottom Justify Dimension Text, Left Justify Dimension Text, Right
          Justify Dimension Text,;
        * Auto Arrange Dimensions. This tool positions dimensions quickly and easily.
        * Dual Unit Support. You can display dual units in hole tables
        * Weld Support in Drawings. In drawings, you can insert bi-directional weld symbols that are
          attached to weld paths.

   5. Weldments

        * Weld Beads. You can add simplified weld beads to weldment parts and assemblies, and
          multibody parts.
        * Weld Bead Display. Weld beads are displayed as graphical representations in models. The
          weld beads are lightweight and do not affect performance.
        * Fillets and Chamfers. In assemblies, you can create fillets and chamfers, which are useful
          for weld preparation (you can propagate these features to the parts they affect).
