SOLIDWORKS Utilities is a set of tools that lets you examine in detail the geometry of a solid model, and make comparisons to other models.
Most tools are located in the Task Pane, which you can pin to keep it available. You must complete Task Pane actions, or close the utility in the Task Pane, to be able to continue.
The following tools are included:
||Compares the properties of two SOLIDWORKS documents (including two configurations of the same model). You can compare two documents of the same type, or of different types. This utility identifies differences in file properties, document properties, and so on.
||Identifies differences in solid features between two versions of the same part. This utility identifies unique and modified features in both versions of the part.
||Identifies geometric differences between two versions of the same part. This utility identifies unique and modified faces in both parts. It also computes the common volume of the two parts (or assemblies) and the volume of material added and material removed.
||Compares Bill of Material (BOM) tables from two SOLIDWORKS assembly or drawing documents. The results list missing columns and rows, extra columns and rows, and failed rows.
