With almost 2 days to go for the release of SolidWorks 2013, here is one more interesting feature to share with you. SolidWorks 2013 gives you the ability to make envelopes from subassemblies. Workflow improvements include designating components as envelopes as you insert them into assemblies, and changing components to or from envelopes at any time. New options let you adjust envelope visibility and load envelopes as lightweight or read-only.
