In this article, we will explain what SolidWorks 2013 is, why you need a validation code, how to get one, and how to troubleshoot common issues with it. By the end of this article, you will have a better understanding of how to install and use SolidWorks 2013 with confidence.


What is SolidWorks 2013 and why do you need a validation code?




SolidWorks 2013 is the 21st major release of SolidWorks, which was launched in October 2012. It offers many new features, functions, and capabilities that enhance your design process and productivity. Some of the top enhancements of SolidWorks 2013 are:


  • Data validation in design tables. You can choose values from a drop-down list of valid selections for certain parameters in your design tables. This helps you avoid errors and inconsistencies in your configurations.



  • Conic sketch tool. You can create conic curves in sketches by specifying the start point, end point, and rho value. Conic curves are useful for creating smooth transitions between curves or creating complex shapes.



  • Varying dimension patterns. You can create linear or circular patterns with dimensions that vary according to a table or an equation. This allows you to create complex patterns without using multiple features or equations.



  • Intersect feature. You can create solid or surface bodies by intersecting existing bodies. You can also use this feature to trim or split bodies or to add or remove material.



  • Previous release interoperability. You can open SolidWorks 2014 files in SolidWorks 2013 Service Pack 5 without losing any feature data. This enables you to collaborate with users who have different versions of SolidWorks.



To use these features and more, you need a validation code for SolidWorks 2013. A validation code is required for every installation of SolidWorks on an individual computer or on multiple clients using an administrative image.
