SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software offers three packages with built-in functionality, organized in different tiers, so your organization can use the package that best meets its needs. All packages use the intuitive SOLIDWORKS user interface to speed up your design process and instantly increase your productivity.
Get you up to speed and benefit from this powerful 3D design and manufacturing solution. In addition to part, assembly, and 2D drawing capabilities, there are specialized tools for sheet metal, weldments, surfaces, molds, product configuration, design analysis, DFM, and CAM. Active subscription comes with CAM.
SOLIDWORKS Professional is built on the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Standard, with ECAD/MCAD collaboration, automatic cost estimation, collaboration capabilities, design and drawing checking, sophisticated component libraries, and advanced photorealistic rendering.
Create complex part and assembly designs quickly and efficiently with SOLIDWORKS 3D design software. Powerful and easy-to-use design features combined with a variety of tools for drawing creation, design analysis, cost estimation, rendering, animation, and file management give you an intuitive system for developing innovative products that enhance your work Efficiency, Cost Reduction and Speed to Market
Create production-ready, always up-to-date 2D drawings that clearly communicate the design's manufacturing and assembly methods. SOLIDWORKS associativity links 2D drawings directly with 3D solid models, so updates to 3D models are automatically reflected in 2D drawings. SOLIDWORKS accelerates the design process, saving time and development costs while increasing productivity.
Leverage existing engineering data to create new designs and accelerate new product development. With SOLIDWORKS, you have a range of tools to reuse existing 3D CAD models and 2D drawings to speed up your design process, save time, reduce development costs, and increase productivity. SOLIDWORKS search, automation, and configuration tools help you easily create new designs using existing design data.
SOLIDWORKS product collaboration tools help members of your design team collaborate closely with other project stakeholders, external suppliers, and customers. . You can protect proprietary design data before sharing designs with people outside your organization, and you can manage project data and control design revisions. SOLIDWORKS product collaboration tools include many innovative time-saving features such as 3D Interconnect, eDrawings® and 3D Mark Up for parts and assemblies.
Use SOLIDWORKS Interference Check to confirm that your parts and assemblies will fit, assemble, and function correctly before going into production. With full integration with CAD, you can use interference checking in both 2D and 3D during the design process to speed up the product development process, and analyze tolerances to evaluate manufacturability.
SOLIDWORKS SimulationXpress is a preliminary analysis tool that allows you to perform basic stress analysis on individual parts. You can quickly determine the effects of force and pressure and generate reports to document the results.
To ensure your products are manufacturable, SOLIDWORKS provides 3D tools to review your designs early in the development process. It is easier and less expensive to correct problems found during the design phase than to correct problems during manufacturing planning or after the design is in production.
SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard, powered by CAMWorks®, is an integrated 2.5-axis milling programming solution. Using emerging technologies such as Model-Based Definition (MBD) and Knowledge-Based Machining (KBM), SOLIDWORKS CAM can rapidly transform your design-to-manufacturing process by improving communication, reducing errors, shortening cycle times, and improving product quality.
SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard is included with an active subscription to SOLIDWORKS Standard, Professional, or Premium.
SOLIDWORKS provides more than 30 translators to convert imported CAD data to SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD format or export SOLIDWORKS data to other CAD products. 3D Interconnect can open most major CAD formats directly in SOLIDWORKS without converting or saving data as SOLIDWORKS files.
Utilize the export option (“extended reality”) to greatly simplify the transition from SOLIDWORKS CAD to augmented and virtual reality, helping certified partners build an ecosystem of rich AR, VR, and web viewing experiences. This new export option in SOLIDWORKS preserves valuable information such as geometry, appearance, motion studies, configurations, display states, metadata, and more.
The professional version includes all the features of the basic version
SOLIDWORKS automated cost estimation tools are fully integrated with 3D CAD, allowing you to continuously check your designs against cost targets. Easily monitor manufacturing costs as you design to avoid costly redesigns and production delays. Manufacturers can also use SOLIDWORKS cost estimation tools to automate the quoting process.
Share data between electrical CAD (ECAD) and mechanical CAD (MCAD) designers with CircuitWorks™. With CircuitWorks, you can share, compare, update, and track electrical design data so you can quickly resolve electrical-mechanical integration and collaboration problems.
Use SOLIDWORKS to establish design standards and review drawings (or models) to create unified designs and documentation. As you design, use SOLIDWORKS to establish design standards and then check drawings (or models) against those standards to ensure consistent and complete drawing output
Use eDrawings software to view SOLIDWORKS 3D models and 2D drawings in an email-friendly format to increase collaboration, speed up the design process, and increase productivity. eDrawings Professional allows users to quickly and accurately view, measure, and annotate designs, improving communication between designers, manufacturers, and customers.
TolAnalyst tolerance analysis tools automatically check the effects of tolerances on parts and assemblies to ensure consistent part fit and validate tolerance schemes before products enter production. If dimensional and tolerance changes are made, the tolerance analysis can be rerun, allowing you to obtain an optimized tolerance scheme.
SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard allows you to create engaging visual content for your 3D designs with ease and flexibility. By using photo-quality content early in the design process, you can receive helpful and early feedback to make more informed design decisions.
SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard is included with an active subscription of SOLIDWORKS Professional or Premium.
With reverse engineering, you can recreate designs from already existing designs, speeding product development, reducing risk, saving time, and increasing productivity. Use the ScanTo3D function to import, edit, evaluate and create solid geometry from scanned point cloud and mesh data.
Premium Edition includes all the functions of Standard Edition and Professional Edition
Use SOLIDWORKS Simulation's motion analysis to evaluate how a product performs and moves throughout its operational cycle. Show how your product will move in the real world, measure forces and loads on your design, use data to properly size motors, and create optimal mechanics to ensure product performance, quality, and safety .
Performing linear stress analysis with SOLIDWORKS Simulation can become a regular part of your design process, reducing the need for costly prototypes, eliminating rework and delays, saving time, and reducing development costs. Linear stress analysis calculates the stress and deformation of the geometry. SOLIDWORKS Simulation uses finite element analysis (FEA) methods to discretize design components into solid, shell, or beam elements, and linear stress analysis to determine part and assembly responses.
Use the tools available in SOLIDWORKS Premium to simplify the design and documentation of piping and piping for a variety of systems and applications, including machinery, brake systems, and process plant piping.
SOLIDWORKS Premium includes design tools that build routes for pipes, runs, or cables in assemblies. Routing creates a special type of subassembly to create the path of pipes, runs, or cables between components.
Many products are manufactured by shaping flat material, such as sheet metal, into complex shapes. SOLIDWORKS advanced surface flattening capabilities provide the control and flexibility to flatten these complex surfaces.
