   By TriMech Marketing on November 11, 2019

So many improvements in SOLIDWORKS 2020, so little time! With the vast amount of upgrades and additions they make each year, it can be overwhelming trying to sift through them all, and often, useful tools and changes are missed. To ensure you are getting the most of your software, we are providing twelve on-demand webinars full of demonstrations, updates, explanations and explorations of SOLIDWORKS. 

TriMech 20 for 20: What's New in SOLIDWORKS 2020 Webinars

Consumer Product Design

Working in the consumer product design industry requires a vast skillset, and with the annual update, SOLIDWORKS makes sure you have the most up-to-date tools for the job. In this on-demand webinar, you will learn about some of the improvements in 3DEXPERIENCE and xShape, plus you’ll get a look at G3 continuity, touch support and PLM Connector. Watch this Webinar.

User Interface & Fundamental Tooling

When discussing updates, people tend to zone into the new additions at their disposal and forget that some of the most useful improvements are to the SOLIDWORKS user interface itself. In this on-demand webinar, you will get a look into the new material dialog box, markup tool, file sorting system and other enhancements. Watch this Webinar.

Sketching Tools & Drawing Enhancements 

Many companies’ main goal is to improve productivity since it’s the starting domino to time and money savings. In this on-demand webinar, you will learn about the improvements made to the sketching and drawing tools to increase productivity such as Power Modify, Split Tool relations, silhouette entities, better control splines and much, much more! Watch this Webinar.

The Language of Machine Tools

To communicate with team members we use email, but to communicate with machines, we need a different tool. In this on-demand webinar, you will get to tour Universal Post Generator or UPG, a free software paired with SOLIDWORKS CAM to create or modify post processors used to generate G-code for running machine tools. Watch this Webinar.

Structural Systems, Sheet Metal & Routing

In your 3D CAD software, we know you’re using more than one feature, and SOLIDWORKS knows this too, which is why they spread the love for their updates. In this on-demand webinar, you will get the inside scoop on the enhancements to sheet metal, routing and structural systems. You will learn how to improve flat patterns and relief cuts, specify colors for multiple connection points, devise structural members and much, much more! Watch this Webinar.


SOLIDWORKS CAM and MBD are linked together through DimXpert, but 2020 brought more updates to help assist in drawing-less workflows. In this on-demand webinar, you will learn about 3D PDF setup sheets, tabbing and probing, modern CAM programming, organization of annotations, expanding industry support and other advancements. Watch this Webinar.


SOLIDWORKS 2020 brought some great improvements that benefit the manufacturing industry such as tools that can improve quality control, production and final products. In this on-demand webinar, you will discover the updates to SOLIDWORKS MBD, CAM and Inspection and how they work together for an enhanced workflow. Watch this Webinar.

Assemblies & Toolbox Components 

Assemblies and toolbox components weren’t left out in the 2020 SOLIDWORKS advancements. In this on-demand webinar, you will get an overview of the changes this year brought, including auto-spacing components, reusing multibody part explosions, isolated interfaces, large design review mode, and many others. Watch this Webinar.

Parts & Features

This SOLIDWORKS 2020 update brought a handful of updated elements relating to parts and features. In this on-demand webinar, you will be introduced to Hole Wizard tool improvements, components that add support to Mesh BREP Bodies, how to automatically repair missing references for fillets and chamfers and how to get fewer failures using the Offset Surface tool. Watch this Webinar.

Shortcuts & Enhancements 

This year’s update brought many ways to cut down on mouse clicks, which can save you lots of time. In this on-demand webinar, you will learn an array of shortcuts including 3D Interconnect drag and drop components, full virtual reality abilities in eDrawings, detail mode in drawings, assembly mate shortcuts, Large Design Edit Mode and much more! Watch this Webinar.

Simulation & Flow Simulation 

With SOLIDWORKS Simulation and Flow Simulation on your side, you can save time, money and lots of frustration. In this on-demand webinar, you will get a review of the updates for the software, a demonstration of advanced usability with validation tools and a lesson in how to show better workflow operations with validation tools. Watch this Webinar.


SOLIDWORKS Composer can create a wide range of technical communication documents automatically, but that doesn’t mean SOLIDWORKS stopped pushing forward. In this on-demand webinar, you will get a tour of key functions of the software including the Styles tab, the Digger tool, BOM tool, geometry in your document and more! Watch this Webinar.
