Basic 2D-design capabilities

  • Creating basic elements: lines, arcs, circles, ellipses, tables, hatching and clouds.
  • Perform operations of moving, copying, rotating, reflecting, creating arrays, scaling, cropping, creating chamfers or splitting.
  • Measure and annotate distances between objects using size tools.
  • Import, create and manage layers, blocks and external links, as well as output drawings to a plotter, printer or for export to a file. Advanced 2D plotting and customization APIs.
  • Accelerate manufacturing processes through the use of APIs for automation and customization.
  • Save design time by eliminating manual or time-consuming tasks using tools such as Drawing Comparison, AutoCrop, Centerline Insert, Outline Array, Curved Text, Batch Printing, etc.
  • Convert raster images, such as floor plans and logos, into vector line features in seconds using the Image Tracer tool.
  • Easily add standard hardware components from a library of bolts, screws, nuts, washers and pins, create holes and extensions, create specifications, add positions, and much more with the Toolbox.
  • Import and export of various types and file formats, including PDF, DGN, SVG, XLS and DSHBM (HomeByMe). Reliable 3D design tools and powerful integration capabilities.
  • Creation of any objects - from basic 3D-shapes to complex 3D-surfaces and 3D-bodies based on a sketch.
  • Extend design workflows by integrating with SOLIDWORKS Visualize for rendering and SOLIDWORKS Simulation for analysis. 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace Make for interacting with manufacturers around the world on 3D printing and other processes.
  • Parametric control of drawing objects by specifying geometric and dimensional properties with 2D constraints.
  • Support for multi-user and multi-site collaboration.
  • Ensure concurrent use and compliance across the organization through network licensing.
  • Comprehensive technical support to solve problems and eliminate downtime.
