"In our business, the best measure of efficiency is the ability to create custom parts and assemblies that fit together correctly the first time. SOLIDWORKS greatly increases the odds that we consistently achieve that goal, not just during initial assembly, but also whenever we need to produce replacement parts."

SOLIDWORKS seamlessly integrates powerful design tools-including industry-leading part, assembly, and drawing capabilities with built-in simulation, cost estimation, rendering, animation, and product data management-to help you get your work done faster and easier than ever before. With innovative capabilities, SOLIDWORKS moves you smoothly through the phases of product creation (Design, Validate, Collaborate, Build) to achieve a more productive 3D design experience. 

Move Quickly From Idea to Reality 
Advance your ideas from concept to market with incresed modeling flexibility

  • 3D solid modeling: create and edit 3D part and assembly models and create 2D drawings that automatically update with design changes
  • Conceptual design: create layout sketches; apply motors and forces to check mechanism performance; import images and scans to use as a reference for creating 3D geometry
  • Large assembly design capabilities: create and manage extremely large designs, and work in either detailed or simplified modes
  • Advanced surfacing: create and edit complex solid and surface geometry, including stylish C2 surfaces
  • Sheet metal: design from scratch or convert your 3D part to sheet metal; includes automatic flattening of sheet metal parts with bend length compensation
  • Weldments: quickly design welded structures composed of structural members, plates, and gussets; includes a library of predefined structural shapes
  • Mold design: design molded parts and the tooling to create them, including core and cavity, draft, automated parting surfaces, and mold base components
  • Piping/tubing design: generate and document 3D mechanical systems, including pipe/tube paths, pipe spools, pipe slope, and a complete Bill of Materials (BOM)
  • Electrical cable/harness and conduit design: generate and document 3D electrical route paths, and complete the BOM for your design

Design reuse and automation
