How many features will solidworks support?
Not sure there is a listed number. How many do you need it to support?
What are you trying to do?
I was just throwing it out there for conversation. This last one I worked on ended up @ 450+ features and solidworks seems to be having trouble with it.
I imagine that Greg is right about it being a matter of what your computer can handle instead of a maximum amount mandated by SW. I'm not surprised that you're having problems with a 450 feature part, the machine I started using SW with probably couldn't have handled 50.
I think it would be more of a question of how many your computer would support.
Even if there was a hard upper limit, you could circumvent that by inserting the part into a new part and continuing the design.
Keep in mind that not all features are created equal. A part with 500 extrudes does not tax the machine the way 500 lofts would. I'm sure there is some hard limit, but I doubt any machine could actually get there and remain usuable. I have worked on parts with more than 500 surface features and it becomes very unstable and hard to work with. I would relate this to playing Jenga and having 500 moves played (now I am wondering if that is even possible).
