SOLIDWORKS 2023: Smarter. Faster. Together.


SOLIDWORKS 2023 is more automated than ever and enables designers to work smarter. Enhancements give you the ability to produce more precise drawings, communicate your sheet metal designs more clearly, and gives you more control of your structure designs.

SOLIDWORKS2023 SheetMetal

Sheet Metal

Sheet metal design is smarter and more flexible than ever with the ability to provide valuable insight up front, improving communication with manufacturing and speeding up the process. Enhancements include: 

  • Equalize bend radius values more easily by applying symmetric thickness with the Base Flange or Lofted Bend features. 
  • Include the sheet metal gauge value in annotations and cut lists. 
  • Automatic sensor alerts when you exceed the sheet metal bounding box size limits.

Structure Design

Build and modify more complex structures easily with more control and structure design capabilities, including the new Pattern feature. Capabilities include: 

  • Group similar corners and apply trimming, then automatically apply connection plates, with the new Pattern feature. 
  • Select a set of weldment members of the  same size and type and change their size for specific configurations. 
  • Zoom to a selected corner from the FeatureManager® Design Tree or the Corner Management PropertyManager.

The SOLIDWORKS 2023 release, not only enables you to work smarter, but also faster. Work faster with large assemblies, create geometry more quickly and more.

Assembly Design 

Assembly design is not only smarter, but faster. Work faster with large assemblies with more automated assembly management. Time-saving updates enable you to : 

  • Optimize resolved mode automatically by selectively using lightweight technology when you load components in resolved mode. 
  • Be more productive with the ability to save large assemblies faster. 
  • Speed up your downstream processes by exporting assembly components as separate STEP files.

SOLIDWORKS2023 Assembly Workflows

Assembly Workflows 

The assembly workflows are faster than ever and require fewer steps to get your job done in SOLIDWORKS 2023. Enhancements enable you to: 

  •  Ensure design integrity by automatically replacing lost mate references with alternative mate references including faces, edges, planes, axes, and points. 
  • Save more time when designing assemblies with the ability to suppress unneeded Magnetic Mates and Connection Points. 
  • Speed up assembly feature creation with new end conditions, including Up To Next, Up To Vertex, and more.

Part and Feature

  • Turbocharge the copying of bodies by controlling translation and rotation values with equations.
  • Speed up part modeling by referencing coordinate systems in 3D sketches, 2D sketch dimensions, and mirroring.
  • Create wrap features from sketches that use single-line fonts, also known as stick fonts.

SOLIDWORKS2023 Electrical

SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2023

In 2023 you can create more informative electrical documentation faster while reducing errors and handle more complex electrical routing scenarios with new options for flattening, reorienting, and displaying wires and connectors. Highlights include: 

  • Include report tables such as BOM and wire lists in any electrical project drawing. 
  • Display connection information about a component in a label that you can dynamically insert into schematics. 
  • Create better schematics automatically from electrical data in MS® Excel spreadsheets. 
  • Create splices with multiple circuits to which wires or cable cores are connected. 
  • Visualize your harness segment clearly by viewing its graphical cross-section. 
  •  Improve electrical routing design by reorienting the connectors to be parallel to a selected plane.


The next theme “work together” focuses on one of the most important aspects of design, collaboration, and how you and your team can expand your toolset with solutions that complement SOLIDWORKS. With SOLIDWORKS you can easily work with all products within the SOLIDWORKS portfolio and other Dassault Systèmes solutions, including the 3DEXPERIENCE Works portfolio and the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE platform; and collaborate with peers and partners on the platform.
