Detailing Mode – New for SOLIDWORKS 2020
Detailing Mode in SOLIDWORKS 2020 is a totally new way to open and detail extremely large drawings, especially large assembly drawings or multi-sheet drawings, by opening a preview of the drawing that can still be detailed. The drawing will open almost instantaneously, but views can be moved or scaled as if the drawing was resolved.
Annotations and dimensions can be modified, including balloons linked to a BOM table. Sheets can be added, renamed, and re-ordered, all without loading the model geometry or doing complex rebuilds. This is great for adding or modifying details on a drawing that was created previously but has not been finalized or signed off.
