3D CAD Key Capabilities – CAD Animation

Demonstrate the basic operation of your design under real-world conditions with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software. Powerful, easy-to-use CAD animation tools create a dynamic product presentation that can help accelerate your time-to-market while saving you time and increasing productivity.

CAD Animation Overview

SOLIDWORKS enables you to animate your design in order to explain its function and assembly, as well as how it fits with related products. Showing a video is an extremely powerful way to communicate across languages and between technical and nontechnical people. SOLIDWORKS animation tools include:

  • Fast, easy animation creation—software developed for the designer/engineer, and does not require an animator
  • Timeline-based animation creation
  • Exploded view animation to help explain assembly/disassembly
  • SOLIDWORKS motion controls to rotate, slide, and move components as needed
  • Video output, frame rate, and other controls
  • Save video for viewing by others
