Intuitive 3D design and product development solutions from SOLIDWORKS® let you conceptualize, create, validate, communicate, manage, and transform your innovative ideas into great product designs.
SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD solutions provide easy-to-learn, yet extremely powerful functionality that shortens product development time, reduces costs, and improves quality.
SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software offers three packages building in functionality and tiered to best suit the needs of your organization. All packages utilise the intuitive SOLIDWORKS user interface to speed your design process and make you instantly productive.
Why Choose SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD?
Dramatically improve the way you develop and manufacture products. As the foundation for the entire SOLIDWORKS suite of product development solutions, SOLIDWORKS CAD packages cover design, simulation, cost estimation, manufacturability checks, CAM, sustainable design, and data management.
Get up to speed quickly and benefit from this powerful 3D design and manufacturing solution. Along with part, assembly, and 2D drawing functionality, specialized tools are included for sheet metal, weldments, surfacing, molds, product configuration, design analysis, DFM, and CAM. CAM included with an active subscription.
SOLIDWORKS Professional builds on the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Standard with ECAD/MCAD collaboration, automated cost estimation, collaboration capabilities, design and drawing checking, a sophisticated components and parts library, and advanced photorealistic rendering.
SOLIDWORKS Premium builds on SOLIDWORKS Professional by adding structural and motion analysis capabilities, advanced surface flattening, reverse engineering, and electrical cable and pipe routing functionality.
Solve new problems with a cloud-based 3D modeling solution that runs on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform and works seamlessly with SOLIDWORKS®. Easily and quickly create, review, and evaluate 3D conceptual and detailed models with 3D Creator (which includes the xDesign app). Collaborate without friction and use solutions that work together seamlessly on the platform to design, simulate and manufacture your products and manage your product data and lifecycle.
Create organic shapes and complex surfaces easily with a cloud-based subdivision (Sub-D) modeling solution that runs on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform and works seamlessly with SOLIDWORKS®. Easily and quickly create, review, and evaluate organic and ergonomic shapes with 3D Sculptor (which includes the xShape app). Collaborate without friction and use solutions that work together seamlessly on the platform to design, simulate and manufacture your products and manage your product data and lifecycle.
The future of your business is collaborative…and so are the new SOLIDWORKS Offers: An intuitive and robust set of 3D design capabilities combined with data management, conceptual design with subdivision modeling. Now you can connect the right people with real-time information and the right tools—on one unified platform—to make better decisions faster.
Streamlines product development process from design through manufacturing.
Eliminates rework, the duplication of work, and data translation errors.
Significantly reduces costs associated with supporting multiple design and manufacturing tools by implementing one seamlessly integrated design-to-manufacturing solution.
Enables fast and easy learning with online help and tutorials, live technical support, and training.
Works directly with CAD data created in any major 3D CAD system.
Updates documentation and BOMs automatically when designs change.
Uses estimation tools and manufacturability checks to “design for cost” and “design for manufacturing”.
Speeds the creation of 2D drawings, possibly eliminating the need altogether.
Provides CAM programming for CNC machining with SOLIDWORKS CAM, powered by CAMWorks®.
