SOLIDWORKS Premium Advantages

SOLIDWORKS Premium further expands on the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Professional to deliver the flagship 3D solution in the SOLIDWORKS family.

The rich simulation capabilities let users test product performance against real life motion and forces. Tolerance stack up analysis ensures manufacturability and helps resolve complex assembly issues early in the design process. To summarize, you get all the benefits of a complete 3D design solution with SOLIDWORKS Premium.

  1. Improve user productivity by automatically detecting and resolving modeling
  2. Easy customization of the SOLIDWORKS user interface enables you to dramatically increase design productivity
  3. Speed up development of new designs by leveraging existing work using SOLIDWORKS design automation tools
  4. Powerful visualization and collaboration
  5. Easily create, share, and manage with large design, collaboration, and data management tools
  6. Complex assembly done right

Capabilities (Standard and Professional Capabilities Included)

SOLIDWORKS Advanced Surface Flattening
Accurately determine or estimate the size and shape of the surfaces in their flattened state in order to be able to cut the material from the flat sheet.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation (Structural Analysis)
Perform extremely fast static stress, strain, and displacement analysis on parts and assemblies. Friction all forces between contacting parts in the assemblies can also be included.

Simulate and analyze motion of an assembly while incorporating elements such as springs, dampers, or friction, and using mating conditions/constraints from your SOLIDWORKS assembly, range of motion, constraints, mass and component contact are all incorporated in the kinematic solver calculation, providing dynamic time-dependent loads and forces which can also be coupled and used as inputs to structural analysis studies.

Easily route pipes, tubes, or electrical cables in your 3D assemblies, and create fast nail-board and piping drawings with a full BOM, including wire or pipes segment lengths, hardware, connectors and pipe fittings, etc.

SOLIDWORKS Assembly Level Cost Roll Up
Total cost of the assembly will be calculated by calculating the cost of all parts and adding them together with all hardware and other purchased component costs. You can also recognize welding operations and add custom operations such as painting to the top-level assembly.

SOLIDWORKS Substainability
Pioneering Green design initiatives in CAD, sustainability gives instant feedback on the environmental impact of design decisions made in a product’s production, use, and disposal.
