Xperts Overview

The SolidWorks Xperts are tools that help novices use SolidWorks like experts, without having to understand the details of the software. The Xperts take care of the details of software functionality. Using Xperts, you can focus on your design intent while the Xperts focus on what the software should do to achieve it.

Xperts can:

  • Understand, select, and apply the settings and combinations of functionality that work best in certain situations.
  • Manage complex interactions, such as those between features like fillets and drafts.
