SOLIDWORKS 2020 Drawing Markups

Article by Martin Bucholz on Nov 11, 2019

Solidworks 2020 Drawing Markups has given you even more ways to communicate with vendors, coworkers, or customers.  The new Markup tools in SOLIDWORKS allow us to do this both with touch mode and with a mouse.

With SOLIDWORKS 2020 Drawing Markups, you can draw shapes and leave text notes onto a drawing without directly affecting the drawing views.


Those markups get saved into the drawing and toggled on and off into the hide/show heads up toolbar, and once the changes are made the notes can be erased making markups easier than ever before.
