SOLIDWORKS 2022 features many new user-driven enhancements to accelerate the product development process. In this software sneak peek, we look at what's new in SOLIDWORKS 2022 Assemblies and Drawings. For a detailed demonstration and to see everything that’s new in SOLIDWORSK 2022, join us at our 3D CAD conference virtually or in a city near you.
If your SOLIDWORKS serial number has expired, (no longer under subscription service) you will not be able to use Check for Updates inside SOLIDWORKS to download the latest service pack. You will also find there is a lock on the download section in the Customer Portal. This is because SOLIDWORKS requires an active subscription to download the software from their servers.
There are lots of different GPU (Graphics Processing Units) options available for SOLIDWORKS CAD and SOLIDWORKS Visualize rendering software. Three notable options are from NVIDIA's new RTX series (formerly known as Quadro - a name change that helps differentiate gaming GPUs from workstation GPUs) the RTX A6000, RTX A5000, and RTX A4000.
Before beginning the download and installation process, make sure the computer you are planning to install SOLIDWORKS onto meets the minimum system requirements. You will need a reliable internet connection as well as the 24-digit serial number you received from GoEngineer. (Note: The SolidNetWork License Manager version MUST be equal to or newer than the SOLIDWORKS version installed on client/local systems).
SOLIDWORKS offers several licensing solutions tailored to the size and flexibility needs of an organization. These licenses range from Single Seat, Single User, and Standalone to the ability to spread your SOLIDWORKS investment over a large group of users using Floating Network licenses. In this guide, we dive deeper into what each option of SOLIDWORKS licensing is, how they work, and how to choose the option that best fits the way your company operates.
Some remote workers struggle to be as productive on their mobile workstation screens alone, or are toggling tasks between one or two additional monitors - but are your monitors equipped to handle all your engineering needs? If you use 3D CAD software like SOLIDWORKS, you’re likely already aware that when working on designs, display quality is critical, so monitor size and resolution quality can influence how effective and efficient you are in your digital workspace.
When you purchase a license of SOLIDWORKS, you are provided a 24-digit alphanumeric serial number. (Older license/serial numbers used sixteen digits). You will use this number to activate your license of SOLIDWORKS and SOLIDWORKS add-ins (e.g., Simulation, Composer, Inspection, etc.) installed on your computer.
