What are everyone's favorite new features in SOLIDWORKS 2016?

Discussion created by Cody Pendzich on Nov 25, 2015

I've spent a lot of time with SOLIDWORKS 2016 so far, and am extremely excited about some of the things I've seen so far.

 

Breadcrumbs

These are huge to me. It's so nice being able to press "D" and have the face, feature, part, and assembly right there. It took a bit for me to get used to, but now when I use 2015 I almost feel lost without it.

 

Visualize

I love modeling fun things that look cool, so I was really excited to see that I now have the capability to create more realistic renders easily and a little bit faster than with PhotoView.

I always get really excited for the new releases, and am curious what other users think about these features.
