How SOLIDWORKS Drawings Matches Part and Assembly Titles in 2022 FD03

By Sawyer Gara on

The release of SOLIDWORKS 2022 FD03 has brought about a ton of great changes and enhancements to the roles and apps that we love to use on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. To me, some of the greatest enhancements are happening to the collaborative designer for SOLIDWORKS role.

In this role, we’ve had some changes to how the drawing title and the part or assembly titles are matching up. Before FDO3, we would have something like Bend Table Sheet Metal as my drawing title, but inside of it is Super Cool Sheet Metal, it’s a part file with a different name. If I were to come in and add in a bend table, make some simple changes to my file, and then receive this to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, we would see what we would typically expect. That drawing title would stay as Bend Table Sheet Metal and my part would stay as Super Cool Sheet Metal.

However, with 2022 FD03, there are new options for using the part or assembly title as our new drawing title. The two options are only on that initial save, so we’re first, pushing things up to our 3DSpace on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. But we also have this other option for on every save or update. That means if we change the title of part that’s sitting inside a drawing or the assembly inside of our drawing, we can be rest assured that this drawing title is going to match, and this is going to give us additional flexibility when naming our drawing. So now with that option selected and I saved this up to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, we’re going to notice that my component name for my drawing and my part are going to match. We have Super Cool Sheet Metal for the drawing and Super Cool Sheet Metal for the part.
