What’s New in SOLIDWORKS 2019 – Trim Entities Enhancement

In SOLIDWORKS 2019, you can convert trimmed entities into construction geometry or ignore construction geometry when trimming. This improves the handling of construction geometry for 2D and 3D sketches.

Previously, the Trim Entities tool trimmed all entities, which often caused sketches to become under defined.

Click Tools > Sketch Tools > Trim to open the Trim Entities PropertyManager.

Keep trimmed entities as construction geometry Converts the trimmed entities into construction geometry.
Ignore trimming of construction geometry Leaves construction geometry unaffected when you trim entities.

These options maintain dimensional relations to the trimmed entities. They might maintain geometric relations, depending on the trimming conditions.

If you select both options, solid entities are converted to construction geometry and existing construction geometry is unaffected.
