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.

SOLIDWORKS capabilities include:

  • 3D solid modeling–turn ideas and concepts into virtual 3D models
  • Conceptual design–begin 3D designs quickly using imported images, simple sketches, or scanned 3D data, and then add more details as the design evolves
  • Assembly Structure Planning: SOLIDWORKS Treehouse – quickly lay out your design assembly structure and then export to SOLIDWORKS to automatically create your CAD files
  • Direct Model Editing–manipulate and modify 3D geometry working directly on the 3D CAD model
  • Large assembly design–performance tools to handle even your biggest and most complex products and systems
  • Advanced surface design–generate complex organic shapes, including curve continuous (C2) surfaces
  • Sheet metal design–create sheet metal parts that can be easily manufactured
  • Weldments–quickly develop structural supports, frames, brackets, and bases
  • Plastic Part design–create plastic parts that can be easily molded
  • CAD Productivity Tools–special capabilities that help you work faster
  • Reverse engineering–work from 3D scan data generated from existing designs to speed new product creations
  • Mold design–generate molds and tooling to produce plastic, cast, and forged parts
  • Piping and tubing design–complete your design by adding hydraulic, pneumatic, and other systems
  • Electrical cable harness and conduit design–include necessary control, power, and other electrical systems in your design
