What’s New SOLIDWORKS 2016: Segment Tool Sketch Relations


Every year SOLIDWORKS releases a new version of its flagship product, and last year, a new tradition was born here on the Blogs. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be taking a closer look at the Sneak Peek features we presented.

Segment Tool Sketch Relations
You can use the Segment tool to create equal length segments in arcs and circles. In an open sketch of an arc or circle, click Segment (Sketch toolbar) or Tools >Sketch Tools > Segment. In the PropertyManager, under Segment Parameters, select Sketch segments. When you use the Sketch segments option on arcs or circles, an Equal Length relation is applied to the sketch segments.
