Sneak Peek: 15 Features coming in SOLIDWORKS 2015 – Sketch Relations on Endpoints

Each year SOLIDWORKS releases a new version of its flagship product. This year, during the 15 days prior to the release of SOLIDWORKS 2015 we’re taking a look at 15 of our favourite new features coming in this feature packed release.

Adding sketch relations at a common vertex now makes adding sketch relations between two adjacent entities is much easier in SOLIDWORKS 2015.  Now instead of needing to select the entities, you can just select a common vertex and the relation pop-up appears. Just like when selecting two entities in a sketch, this single selection presents you with the appropriate relations based on the adjacent sketch geometry. For example, if you select the vertex shared between a line and an arc, SOLIDWORKS presents you with Sketch Relation Popup including both Tangent and Fixed.

This is a fairly subtle enhancement, but it definitely saves a lot of time when adding Sketch Relationships manually.
