Learn how to find problems and errors in your product definitions or assemblies with the Interference Detection tool. It helps you easily see where two parts interfere with each other, and even highlights issues throughout an assembly’s range of motion.

The SOLIDWORKS Interference Detection tool has been around a long time, but lots of new functionality has been added over the years. In this video blog I'll touch on options including the Create fasteners folder, Create matching cosmetic threads folder and Show ignored interferences.

Stay tuned for our upcoming video blog post on a similar tool called Collision Detection, which is essentially the Interference Detection tool in motion. Plus, take a minute to subscribe to the Alignex Blog to get content like this delivered straight to your inbox.
