SolidWorks 2011 — SolidWorks 2011 is a 3D CAD software solution for all aspects of the design process that maximizes productivity and focus on innovation to create products better, faster, and more cost effectively. This is a Control Engineering 2011 Engineers' Choice (EC) nominee.The new SolidWorks 2011 family of products includes hundreds of improvements requested by customers who use SolidWorks everyday to design new products, validate their performance, communicate with partners, manage design data, and minimize a product's impact on the environment. Key features of the product line include: New drawing detailing functions eliminate the time and effort of manual dimensioning. New 2D Simplification helps speed up parts analysis. A new Electronics Cooling Module lets users set up and execute thermal simulations quickly and easily, helping ensure that heat doesn't melt a product's electronics. Fully integrated ability to more easily create compelling photorealistic renderings. New Walk-Through capabilities allow to easily navigate their design visions via their mouse or an onscreen console. A new Defeature tool facilitates the removal of unnecessary detail or sensitive intellectual property before sharing.

Interactive storyboard capabilities help customers deliver process instructions through interactive images. New features that automate weld placement and documentation. Users select and visualize weld bead paths with the Smart Weld tool, and they specify weld type and prepare joints with enhanced fillet and groove features. New bend calculation tables allow designers to catch sheet metal errors early by quickly calculating the developed length of parts. Integration of SolidWorks Design Checker into SolidWorks Enterprise PDM software helps streamline the release of designs to manufacturing. Creation of pipe, tube, and conduit runs (especially when supports and hangers are involved) is simpler with new routing capabilities.
