Powerful Physics-Based Motion Simulation
Fully embedded inside of SolidWorks Premium, Motion is the standard virtual prototyping package for engineers and designers interested in understanding the performance of their SolidWorks models. SolidWorks Motion™ lets you make sure your designs will work before you build them. SolidWorks Motion is powered by ADAMS®, the most widely used mechanical simulation software in the world.

Motion enables engineers to size motors/actuators, determine power consumption, layout linkages, develop cams, understand gear drives, size springs/dampers, and determine how contacting parts behave.

The result is a quantitative reduction in physical prototyping costs and reduced product development time. Motion also provides qualitative benefits such as the ability to consider more designs, risk reduction, and the availability of valuable information early in the design process.
