SOLIDWORKS’ 3DEXPERIENCE World 2021’s Top Ten List

Yup, it’s that time of year again! The drive for ideas in the annual 3DEXPERIENCE World 2021 SOLIDWORKS Top Ten List is happening right now! For example, do you have ideas that address any of the following?

  • Do you know of a workflow that’s been annoying you?
  • What functionality just needs one more thing to make you job 100% easier?
  • Will a shortcut to current functionality help you?
  • What missing functionality do you need?
  • Is there a workaround for which you’d like a native SOLIDWORKS solution?

Submit your ideas to let other SOLIDWORKS users see. Learn how your ideas stack up when compared to other submissions! Comment on other ideas that you like or don’t like.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve only been using SOLIDWORKS products for a year or 20 years. Your ideas will be read by other SOLIDWORKS users and the Product Definition team at SOLIDWORKS! When it comes time, SOLIDWORKS user-base can vote on submitted ideas. Also, there’s a great track record for implementation of Top Ten ideas!

Platform for SOLIDWORKS Top Ten

As with last year, the platform upon which the Top Ten List resides is now 3DSwym. So, if you are new or you didn’t submit an idea last year, please see the main SOLIDWORKS Forum article and video. There’s information on how to access the Top Ten. Once you have access to the Top Ten forum, check out the video at the top called “Starting Here: Informational Video!”

You have no ideas? Your input is still important!

This isn’t just for people who want to submit an idea. This for all current SOLIDWORKS users to see what’s on everyone else’s mind! Maybe you don’t have an idea yourself, but you find that someone else’s idea might disrupt your own workflows. Your comment about such is very important! Likewise, perhaps you see a great idea that needs a bit more polishing to better suit your own needs. Your about about that is also very important!

There’s already some great ideas to check out:

  • Make Face Curves Editable
  • BOM to Filter Visible Components
  • Left Hand Cosmetic Threads
  • In a “Multiple Page Drawing” scenario, Add a Property Tab to Change Drw Format

Have fun reading everyone else’s ideas and hopefully submitting your own as well!

As a drafter, mechanical designer and CAD engineer, I've been in the mechanical design field since 1991. For the first 8 years of my career, I was an AutoCAD professional. I utilized AutoLISP and many other AutoCAD customization features to streamline drafting activities for 6+ drafters and designers. I authored several custom functions, one of which was published in the March 1997 issue of Cadalyst Magazine. Since 1998, I've been used SolidWorks non-stop. I've worked to utilize the SolidWorks' user environment to simplify drafting and design activities for 20+ engineers. I've created this website to provide current information about SolidWorks from a variety of contributors. More recently, I am now employed by Dassault Systemes as SOLIDWORKS Sr. Product Definition Manager to improve drawing, annotation and MBD related areas.
