SOLIDWORKS® Structure Systems and Sheet Metal have new enhancements in 2023 that enable smoother design-to-manufacturing workflows and speed up tedious tasks. Structure Systems now includes the ability to identify all similar corners in your structure, and apply the same trimming criteria to all of them in one command. Connection elements like gussets or base plates can also be patterned to similar corners, saving tons of time in the your workflow. Designing Sheet Metal parts for manufacturing has never been easier with new enhancements that every shop floor operator will enjoy. Sketched base flange parts can now be thickened symmetrically about the sketch, making identical upward and downward bends easier than ever. There are also a whole new set of Sheet Metal sensors, which will dynamically alert you if the flat pattern bounding box falls outside of defined constraints.
