Some of my favorite enhancements each year are the small ones. The ones that maybe don’t exactly allow you to do something you couldn’t do previously. Instead, they allow you to stop using a workaround to accomplish the same thing. Along those lines in SOLIDWORKS 2020 you can now save a copy of a part or assembly with only a subset of configurations.
Introduced in SOLIDWORKS 2015 Selection Sets was a great time saving feature that enables a user to grab multiple entities in a model or drawing and save those selections so you can return to at any time quickly. In SOLIDWORKS 2020 they have been enhanced to be even more beneficial.
SOLIDWORKS PDM 2020 has introduced some great enhancements to the search capabilities.There is now a quick search box in the in the File Explorer vault view. You still have access to the standard search, but this quick search is located near the standard search magnifying glass icon and is not tied to any search card. That’s right, you can use this without setting up a card in advance.
