This is the best time of the year to make our voice heard by the Product Definition Teams at SOLIDWORKS. Voting for the SOLIDWORKS World Top Ten Ideas is a civic right for all users who pay for subscription. I would call it also a civic duty!


Here is a short list of ideas targeting large assemblies and drawings performance. Please read and (if you agree with me) vote on them:


  1. Multicore Workflow for Large Assemblies and Drawings
  2. Ability to unload and load the body data for the component of an assembly
  3. Allow any drawing to be loaded with or without the model (user control)
  4. Allow preserved bodies in a SpeedPak to be used for Interference Detection or Collision Detection
  5. Add more entity filters (F5): Component, Feature, Cut List Item, Origin, Coordinate System
  6. SW Assembly Visualization - Add Option For More Columns
  7. Ability to isolate components again while being in isolate mode (isolate after isolate) without having to cancel the first isolate command
  8. Manage Display States (especially Hide/Show) with Tables
  9. Make graphic triangles visible in parts / assemblies
  10. Add the Functionality for Lines & Circles for Mate Option


If your colleagues frequently complain about large assemblies or drawings slow-downs, encourage them to vote on these ideas.
