Create sophisticated part and assembly designs quickly and efficiently with SolidWorks 3D design software. Powerful, easy-to-use design capabilities combine with a range of tools for drawing, design analysis, cost estimation, rendering, animation, and file management to create an intuitive system for developing innovative products, and make you more productive, lower costs, and accelerate your time-to-market.

Part and Assembly Modeling

Handle all aspects of your part and assembly modeling with SolidWorks 3D design system. Effective product design involves a wide range of tasks that demand flexibility in your software. 3D solid modeling offers several advantages over traditional 2D design, but you want 3D CAD tools that you can use every day while being powerful enough to handle all the aspects of your design process. With SolidWorks, you get an intuitive 3D CAD system that combines ease-of-use with powerful modeling capabilities that can handle your most complex design projects. SolidWorks accelerates your design, saving time and development costs, and making you more productive.

2D Drawings

Use SolidWorks 3D CAD to quickly create production-ready 2D drawings that are always current, and clearly communicate how your design should be manufactured and assembled. SolidWorks associativity links a 2D drawing directly with a 3D solid model, so updates to the 3D model can be automatically reflected in the 2D drawing. SolidWorks accelerates your design process, saving time and development costs while increasing productivity.

Design Reuse and Automation

Quickly and easily leverage existing engineering data to create new designs and speed up new product development using SolidWorks 3D CAD software. With SolidWorks, a range of tools helps you reuse existing 3D CAD models and 2D drawings, which accelerates your design process, saves time and development costs, and increases productivity.

Animation and Visualization

Quickly and easily create powerful images and animations of your design from the 3D model with SolidWorks 3D CAD software to more easily communicate your design intent and product functionality. SolidWorks rendering and animation tools increase productivity, save time, and accelerate your time-to-market.

Collaborate and Share CAD Data

Share your designs, manage design files, and work closely with your team and other stakeholders while protecting proprietary data with the multiple tools and applications in SolidWorks 3D CAD software, saving time and development costs, increasing productivity, and accelerating time-to-market.

Interference Check

Verify that your parts and assemblies will fit, assemble, and operate correctly with SolidWorks 3D CAD software before going into production. Fully integrated with CAD, you can use Interference Check while you design to accelerate your product development process, save time and development costs, and increase productivity.

First Pass Analysis Tools

SolidWorks SimulationXpress is a first-pass analysis tool that comes with every SolidWorks Standard and Professional software packages, giving you the ability to do basic stress analysis on individual parts. You can quickly determine effects of force and pressure, and generate reports to document results. When you are ready to test full assemblies, it is easy to upgrade to advanced SolidWorks Simulation packages.

Design for Manufacturing

Check your design and verify manufacturability of your product early in the development process using SolidWorks 3D CAD, saving time and development costs, improving productivity, and accelerating your time-to-market.
