  • Regarding MXS References (this is mentioned in the manual too) -- basically, to create one, you create a dummy .sldprt and insert this into an assembly; selecting the body in the assembly, you will be able to set its MXS Reference path in Scene Manager > Object Properties. At export time, it will be an MXS Reference that is written, rather than the geometry in the .sldprt. If there are multiple instances of the body in the assembly, those additional copies will be exported as instances of the MXS Reference. Since instance handling in SolidWorks is already quite transparent and efficient, the main usefulness of this may be in its providing the ability to easily insert geometry that is impossible or inconvenient to work with (say, from a different application) as native SolidWorks geometry.
