SOLIDWORKS introduces every year a ton of enhancements. This year, in addition to focusing on ONE and TWO, SOLIDWORKS 2018 proposes a series of BIG enhancements, that transcend the term "enhancement", being actually new products, or new environments like: SOLIDWORKS Manage, SOLIDWORKS CAM, Topology Optimization in Simulation Professional and Premium, or the new enhanced functionality for Mesh objects.


What about the so called "small" enhancements, or what SOLIDWORKS calls "Delighters"? Those are the enhancements that most users do not notice, and, as a result, do not incorporate in their modeling workflows.


I spent the time to analyse the new functionality, and selected the Top 20 Small CAD Enhancements for SOLIDWORKS 2018.


Please read this article if you want to save time doing your own research:


If you work for SOLIDWORKS, please read about the current limitations in the new functionality and some further enhancement suggestions.


I am really curious what you think about the new functionality. Which tools and techniques would you incorporate in your daily activity?
