20 Years of SOLIDWORKS

Where were you in 1995? Let's travel back in time together to when design and engineering had a much different look and feel – back to December 12, 1995 when SOLIDWORKS was first introduced to the market. Twenty years ago, hailed the first release of SolidWorks 95 which was aimed to bring CAD technology to every engineer. Before SOLIDWORKS, CAD was expensive, and not easily accessible from a technological perspective. All of that has changed. Today, DS SOLIDWORKS offers a complete toolset to create, simulate, publish, and manage data, maximizing the innovation and productivity of engineering resources.  All of these solutions work together to allow organizations to design products better, faster, and more cost-effectively. 3,073,600+ Strong and Growing More than 3,073,600 users at 23,400 locations in 80 countries around the world rely on SOLIDWORKS software.  Plus, over two million students graduate every year with SOLIDWORKS training.  SOLIDWORKS has consistently ranked as the 3D technology experience that employers seek most in job postings on Monster.com, the most popular employment Web site.
