PART MODELING. With Instant3D, you have the fastest, easiest way to create and modify 3D part geometry. By simply clicking and dragging, you can precisely create and resize features even section entities. As you ready your design for production, use DimXpert to create accurate 2D drawings (or drawing less data) to ensure your parts will fit when manufactured.

REALVIEW® GRAPHICS. Visualize and communicate your designs more clearly than ever. You can quickly create nearly lifelike, fully dynamic representations of your parts, assemblies, and completed products without rendering.

ADVANCED SURFACING AND COMPLEX SHAPES. Improve the aesthetics, ergonomics, and usability of your product designs. Using the Freeform feature, creating new geometry, or importing and manipulating new surfaces, is easy and intuitive.

SHEET METAL DESIGN TOOLS. Create sheet metal parts from scratch using folds, bends, flanges, rips, tabs, and mitres, as well as lofted bends, sketched bends, hems, and more. Alternatively, you can create a solid shape as a starting point. Advanced capabilities, such as the convert solid to sheetmetal functionality, let you develop a manufacturable sheet metal part.

WELDMENT DESIGN. Sketch a layout for your frame and select a weldment profile. SolidWorks will automatically generate a weldment design in 3D. Modify, validate, and reinforce your design, and then enhance it with standard parts that you can drag and drop from the Design Library or 3D ContentCentral®. Then, generate precise manufacturing drawings with cut lengths for all segments.

MOLD DESIGN TOOLS. WITH SOLIDWORKS, you can import part geometry in IGES, STEP, Parasolid , ACIS , and other formats to begin your mold designs. Create, validate, and execute your mold design “and reduce manufacturing errors with a complete range of tools and checks, speeding the design of cores and cavities, assembly features, and lip and groove features.

ASSEMBLY MODELING. SolidWorks gives you the tools to get it right on-screen when you create assemblies, saving you the time and cost of physical prototyping and remanufacturing. You can mate components by picking individual surfaces, edges, curves, and vertices; create mechanical relationships between components; conduct interference, collision, and hole alignment checks; and link the motion of pulleys and sprockets. You can also automatically assemble fasteners and accompanying hardware; automate the assembly of commonly used components, appropriate hardware, and required features; and use MateXpert to fix conflicts such as over-constraining a component.

SIMULATE ASSEMBLY MOTION. Simply by clicking and dragging components, you can check an assembly for proper motion and collisions. In addition, you can simulate physical motion involving assembly mates, contact, springs, and gravity. SolidWorks Motion also provides accurate measurements of velocity, accelerations, and forces on components due to motion – so you have a realistic understanding of design decisions before producing the prototype product.

LARGE ASSEMBLY MANAGEMENT TOOLS. Use Lightweight mode to reduce the time spent opening and working on large assemblies. SpeedPak technology enables you to create simplified versions of assemblies that speed assembly operations and drawing creation. Use Quick View to select and open just the component you need to work on, and use the Assembly Xpert to analyze and improve your assembly performance.

DATA TRANSLATION. Easily import and use existing data, as well as data from external sources. SolidWorks includes translators that support DWG, DXF™, Pro/ENGINEER®, IPT (Autodesk Inventor®), Mechanical Desktop®, Unigraphics®, PAR (Solid Edge®), CADKEY®, IGES, STEP, Parasolid, SAT (ACIS), VDA-FS, VRML, STL, TIFF, JPG, Adobe® Illustrator®, Rhinocerous®, IDF, and HSF (Hoops) formats.

STANDARD HARDWARE LIBRARIES. With SolidWorks Toolbox, SolidWorks Design ClipArt, and 3D ContentCentral, you have instant access to virtual encyclopedias comprising thousands of standard components.

With SolidWorks Simulation, you can easily subject your designs to the same conditions that they'll experience in the real world. Raise the quality of your products while you reduce your costs for live prototypes and testing.

Solidworks Simulation provides the ideal virtual testing environment to evaluate designs and help make the right decisions for overall quality improvement.

  • SolidWorks Simulation Professional
  • SolidWorks Simulation Premium
  • SolidWorks Flow Simulation

SolidWorks Simulation lets you test products for defects before they're built, helping prevent errors early in the design process. It's powerful enough for trained FEA analysts, yet easy enough for product designers. SolidWorks Simulation can even help you optimize your designs for maximum performance and savings.

SolidWorks Simulation opens in the SolidWorks user interface, so there's no need to launch multiple applications. You can subject your designs to the same conditions they'll face in the real world, including stresses, impact, heat, airflow, and more. There's no need to wait until a product has been manufactured to start testing, or go through multiple physical prototypes.

You can use SolidWorks Simulation to answer questions such as

  • will moving parts clash or interfere with one another?
  • how much weight can a product carry?
  • how much will a part deform under specific stresses?
  • will heat and air circulate through the design properly?
  • will it survive a fall?

If you haven't been using Simulation tools because you think they require a Ph.D. in physics, it's time to take another look. SolidWorks Simulation is easy enough for any designer to use, but still powerful enough to provide real, meaningful results.

Core Simulation capabilities are included with every license of SolidWorks Premium, and additional capabilities can be added as you need them. Three upgrades are available: Simulation Premium, and Flow Simulation.

SOLIDWORKS SUSTAINABILITY Conduct life cycle assessment (LCA) on parts or assemblies directly within the SolidWorks 3D design window. Search for comparable materials, see in real time how they affect environmental impact, and easily document your findings.

SolidWorks Sustainability provides a screening-level life cycle assessment (LCA) of the environmental impacts of your full design, with seamless integration to your design process. It includes the diverse tools of SustainabilityXpress (parts assessment, alternative materials search, and environmental impact dashboard) with additional capability to assess both parts and assemblies, using parameters such as transportation mode and distance, assembly energy, and use-phase energy consumption.


Flexible inputs, such as recycled content level and end-of-life scenarios, enable more detailed assessments. You can even perform time-dependent environmental comparisons using the varying lifetimes of different design solutions.

Assessment results are saved for each design configuration, helping you easily compare versions. The Assembly Visualization tool ranks the impact of the parts in your assembly to pinpoint and reassess the sustainability of your design. Seamless integration and automatic report generation allow you to quickly communicate your sustainable design solution.


SolidWorks Sustainability uses the gold-standard GaBi LCA environmental impact database from PE International. You can download updates as they become available, and even request new LCA datasets for your custom materials and processes as a premium service in partnership with PE International.
