From the beginning, SOLIDWORKS® has been at the forefront of making design accessible to every designer and engineer. Our job is putting you in a position to create, collaborate, and deliver innovative product experiences with powerful, yet easy-to-use product development solutions. SOLIDWORKS 2024 continues this expectation, while opening new possibilities to enhance the way you design, communicate, and manage your 3D designs with SOLIDWORKS. Work Smarter. Work Faster. Work Together with SOLIDWORKS 2024.
SAVE ASSEMBLIES AS MULTIBODY PARTS
Save assemblies and subassemblies out to parts easily to enable accurate calculations of interferences and weight further downstream.
This feature links all of the data from the assembly to the part file, with complete associativity between the multibody part and the parent assembly.
This enhancement helps make sure we stay up to date with any design changes that might take place at a later date.
The new Symmetric option is found in the Linear Pattern tool.
STEP FILE IMPORT FILTER
Working with STEP files has been streamlined with the introduction of filters.
We can now enable filters prior to opening STEP files to import only relevant parts of our choosing, massively reducing the opening and rebuild times.
This will give you a preview of what is contained within the step file, where you can select which components you want to import into SOLIDWORKS.
SAVE AS PREVIOUS VERSION
You’ll be forgiven for expecting this one to take the title of top enhancement, as this has been a regularly requested enhancement for several years.
With a SOLIDWORKS subscription, SOLIDWORKS 2024 can now save part, assembly and drawing files as previous versions up to two years old.
ENHANCED RIP TOOL
Hollow and thin walled cylindrical & conical sheet metal parts can now be designed even more easily as the rip tool gains new capabilities to handle them.
SHARE & MARKUP
The SOLIDWORKS Cloud Services remove the friction associated with traditional design sharing and collaboration tools.
We can now share SOLIDWORKS files with anyone to review, measure, and markup easily.
SHEET METAL STAMP
The Stamp tool is a brand-new feature for SOLIDWORKS 2024 and lets us take a sketch and push it into the model, much like a forming tool.
REATTACH DANGLING DIMENSIONS
Re-attaching dangling dimension references is now easier than ever.
A new red X identifies where a reference entity is missing, and we can reattach dimensions directly to model edges in a drawing view.
FASTER SKETCHING TOOLS
Now clicking on any sketch entities reveals an instant preview of a possible dimension. By clicking on that preview dimension, we can enter a value and update the dimension.
This works for all types of dimensions, including angle dimensions. This flexible new feature doesn’t get in the way of your regular sketching workflow, as you can click anywhere else on the screen to disable the preview.
AUTOMATIC PATTERN REPAIR
SOLIDWORKS 2023 brought us the automatic mate repair tool, and this year that tool now extends to repair patterns.
When an afflicted pattern feature is selected from the FeatureManager Tree, the auto repair button will be visible on the menu.
