SOLIDWORKS Sell release updates in July 2019 (R2.12.0)

Blog Post created by Oboe Wu Employee on Jul 26, 2019

Dear all, 

I am glad to share that the SOLIDWORKS Sell 2.12.0 release went live on July 23rd. 


This release features a major enhancement to improve online speed for products with a large number of identical geometries. For example, multiple spokes on bicycle wheels, waterjets in a spa tub, beams on a roof, or shelves on a bookshelf. 



These identical geometries will not consume the same amount of time to load going forward. Instead, the new algorithm loads the first instance and then reuses it at other locations intelligently to reduce the memory consumption, speed up online responses and cut rendering time. The repetitive instances can be either separate parts or identical geometry pieces within one part. 


Obviously, the specific improvements depend on the actual geometry repetitiveness of a product. On certain examples, the loading time can be cut in half. Furthermore, the display frame rate doubles to reach smoother 3D presentations. 


To benefit from this enhancement along with other quality improvements, please upgrade your SOLIDWORKS Sell Publisher to V4 or above.
