Top Ten Enhancement Requests for SolidWorks World 2010

As with each year, SolidWorks World lists the top ten enhancement requests as choosen by SolidWorks users.

#10 Simplify Video Card Requirements – I’m not sure I entirely understand the scope of this request.

#9 Exploded Views for Weldments – Cool.

#8 Option to Dangle Children Instead of Deleting – This should be much higher on the list, in my opinion.

#7 Graphical Map of Reference – Ok, sure.

#6 Allow More Types of Assembly Features – Cool.

#5 Better Utilization of Processore Cores – Yes, definately.  SolidWorks is years behind the curve.

#4 On The Fly Equations in Dialog Boxes – Yes!!!

#3 File Compatibility Between Versions – YES!!!

#2 Increase Stabilty – Yes, but what does this really mean?

#1 SoldWorks Should Cleanly Uninstall Itself – I agree with this too, but is this really something that affects a lot of people on a daily basis?

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.

  2. #1 – From a VAR perspective, continuously, daily. From a customer perspective, consider all the SPs and the desire to clean install once in a while. More over the annual big upgrade that makes a mess of things.

    #2 – Nothing really – Maybe – Error Handling instead of Explosions.

    #10 – (Have a certified and non certified mode…) Oh wait, it’s called Software Open GL

    And really if you’re producing a top ten list about your software, wouldn’t you put in mostly what you were already planning?
