SOLIDWORKS Professional Advantages
SOLIDWORKS Standard delivers robust 3D design capabilities, performance, and ease-of-use.
Not only can you create parametric parts, assemblies, and production level drawings, you have all the needed tools to generate complex surfaces, sheet metal flat patterns, and structural weldments.
- Increased design productivity
- Intelligent sketching
- Reduce design time by using 2D and 3D catalog components provided by suppliers
- Quick generation of manufacturing-ready drawings
- Complex assemblies done right
SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD
Powerful, easy-to-use design capabilities combine with a range of tools for drawing, design analysis, cost estimation, rendering, animation, and file management to create an intuitive system for developing innovative products, and make you more productive, lower costs, and accelerate your time-to-market.
Part and Assembly Modeling
Handle all aspects of your part and assembly modeling with SOLIDWORKS 3D design system. Effective product design involves a wide range of tasks that demand flexibility in your software. 3D solid modeling offers several advantages over traditional 2D design, but you want 3D CAD tools that you can use every day while being powerful enough to handle all the aspects of your design process.
Use SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD to quickly create production-ready 2D drawings that are always current, and clearly communicate how your design should be manufactured and assembled.
Design Reuse and Automation
SOLIDWORKS search, automation, and configuration tools simplify the reuse of existing design data to create new designs. Designers and engineers can find and configure design data and documentation quickly to create new designs, which reduces product development time so they can put their focus on developing innovative new products rather than manipulating a CAD system.
Animation and Visualization
Quickly and easily create powerful images and animations of your design from the 3D model with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software to more easily communicate your design intent and product functionality. SOLIDWORKS rendering and animation tools increase productivity, save time, and accelerate your time-to-market.
Collaborate and Share CAD Data
SOLIDWORKS product collaboration tools help members of your design team work closely with other project stakeholders. SOLIDWORKS software also provides ways to protect your designs before sharing them beyond your organization and to manage project data and control design revisions.
SOLIDWORKS tools help you verify your designs will fit, assemble, and operate correctly before you make any parts. Interference checking finds issues early in design, giving you more time to make less costly fixes.
First Pass Analysis Tools (SOLIDWORKS Simulation Xpress)
Quickly determine effects of force and pressure, and generate reports to document results. When you are ready to test full assemblies, it is easy to upgrade to advanced SOLIDWORKS Simulation packages.
Design for Manufacturing
To ensure your product can be manufactured, SOLIDWORKS provides 3D tools to review your design early in the development process. It is much easier and less costly to correct issues found during the design stage than correcting them during manufacturing planning, or after your design is in production.
