Solidworks 3D CAD Software

SOLIDWORKS Premium

Solidworks premium 3D design solution that includes both simulation and validation of designs beyond the Professional line. Additionally, the premium package offers ECAD/MCAD collaboration, reverse engineering, environmental impact analysis, tolerance analysis, advanced surface flattening capabilities and advanced wire and pipe routing functionality. Premium features all of the elements of the professional and standard packages.

SOLIDWORKS Professional

Professional takes the Standard and its capabilities and increases design productivity with file management, photorealistic rendering, cost estimation, eDrawings® Professional collaboration capabilities, automated design and drawing checking, and a sophisticated components and parts library.

SOLIDWORKS Standard

Companies that need to get up and running quickly in designing parts, assemblies and 2D drawings will find the Solidworks Standard to exceed all expectations. Easy to use, it offers application-specific tools for sheet metal, weldments, surfacing or mold/tool/die design for the best-in-class designs.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium

Ensure product robustness using the range of powerful structural simulation capabilities in SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium. It goes beyond SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional and includes additional tools for simulating nonlinear and dynamic response, dynamic loading, and composite materials.

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation

Efficiently simulate fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces critical to your design’s success with SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation. Driven by engineering goals, SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation takes the complexity out of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and enables Product Engineers to use CFD insights for making their technical decisions in a concurrent engineering approach.

SOLIDWORKS Plastics

Predict and avoid manufacturing defects during the earliest stages of plastics part and injection mold design using SOLIDWORKS Plastics simulation software. Companies that design plastic parts or molds can improve quality, eliminate costly mold rework, and decrease time-to-market.

SOLIDWORKS Sustainability

Conduct life cycle assessment (LCA) on parts or assemblies directly within the SOLIDWORKS 3D design window. Search for comparable materials, see in real time how they affect environmental impact, and easily document your findings.
