    Mechanical design productivity

  • Command preview and contextual menus New

    Preview chamfers, fillets, and offsets as you select the objects to use in the command. View and modify parameters using the new ribbon contextual menu for fillet and chamfer properties.

    Mechanical engineering documentation

  • Note template gallery New

    Access the note template symbol library directly from the ribbon menu. Recently used note templates, previews of each note, and tooltips provide visual references for selecting notes to use in the design.

  • Total mass in bill of materials (BOM) New

    Quickly determine the mass of entire assemblies directly in the BOM view. Using quantity and mass component properties of each part in the assembly, the software calculates the total mass and displays it in the BOM list. The total mass property automatically updates anytime you add or remove components from the assembly.
