Wanted to start the topic where we could discuss the improvements that 2014 version brought to routing module of SolidWorks. Since i am piping only user, i will list some of improvements i was able to notice:


1) much improved control of o-lets >>    now, when you insert o-let to your route, construction line shows up, which connects your part to route. After you drop it to the route line, it is possible to move it and orient it to your needs (unlike in previous version, where you drop it and it was almost impossible to edit its location)


2) dimensioning the route by using face of the flange (Finally) >>  finally you are able to dimension your route and pick flange face for your dimension. Needles to say, this saves a lot of time compared to capabilities in previous versions





I wanted this discussion to be continuous. This way, other users could see whether it pays to move up to current version.
