Today 3D Printing Industry attended the launch of Dassault Systèmes’ SOLIDWORKS 2019, the 27th edition of its portfolio of 3D design and engineering software.

Within the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, SOLIDWORKS 2019 has been integrated with new capabilities, such as SOLIDWORKS Extended Reality (XR), eDrawings 2019 and Large Design Mode, to better support the design to manufacturing process.

University - World - SOLIDWORKS - Age - Group

“Nearly every university in the world is using SOLIDWORKS; the age group for educating engineers is getting younger and younger, therefore we have focused on improving SOLIDWORKS’ performance by re-architecturing the vital features including the graphics engine,” explained David Falkingham, Senior Director Professional Channel – EuroNorth, Dassault Systèmes.

SOLIDWORKS XR is one of the key features within the updated software. This new application allows designers to publish CAD data and “bring it to life, virtually,” explains Mark Barrow, Senior Manager of Product Introduction at Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS.


“Publishing your SOLIDWORKS file to XR will allow you to keep important scene data you’ve created SOLIDWORKS including cameras, materials, decals, and motion study animations. This can then be consumed in a variety of Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality experiences to improve collaborative internal and external design reviews while increasing design confidence throughout the product development process.”

SOLIDWORKS - Performance - Boost - User - Experience

Furthermore, SOLIDWORKS 2019 receives a graphics performance boost aimed at providing a better user experience when working with large assemblies. “All the enhancements and innovations built within SOLIDWORKS 2019 are based on feedback from our community,” said Andy Deighton, Territory Technical Director...
