    Difference between Standard and Professional Versions

    Praveen S.

      Hi all,

      Am Using Solidworks 2018 Standard version.

      (Earlier I used Solidworks 2016 Professional, two years back).

      I have modeled so easily in 2018 Standard version but I feel more difficult in creating drawings for the same.

      Can someone Please help me out for the below ones for which I have been I messed up.

      1.     Can the Font be adjusted with a width factor ?

              (I need to use RomanS with width factor 0.8 to meet inline with AutoCAD standards).

      2.     I have used weldments to create different UB sections like UB 610 & UB 254 and many Piping & Tubular Profiles within a single part file.

              But I need Bill of Material for all sections independently. Can this be Created ?

      3.     I need Drawing dimensions in "mm" and bill of material units in "metre". How can this be done?

      4.     For section call-outs, I have circular profiles only - Is rectangular profiles not available in Standard version?


      I surfed a lot and came to know the major differences between Standard / Professional / Premium.

      But still one by one when I model or detail, I find many things missing inside every features / tools.


      I would be very much thankful for any replies.
