I mostly use Solidworks Explorer to search for specific parts/assemblies using their custom properties as search keywords.
For example I type a person's name to search for all the parts a specific designer has approved, or a Material to search for all the parts designed with that material, etc.


Then I can click each of result icons and SW Explorer gives me a preview window and a lot of more info about the file.


Somewhere I read SW 2020 doesn't contain SW explorer anymore.


In 2020 version :

Is there any utility that covers SW Explorer capabilities?

How can I search for a file using known custom properties as keyword?

Can I install SW explorer as a separate download or stand alone app?


Before upgrading I want to be sure where I'm stepping in.

Any kind of advice is much appreciated.
