Arrow-Down

As with each new release, SOLIDWORKS 2021 adds functionality and performance to enhance the capabilities and workflows you use every day for design, data management, validation and more. SOLIDWORKS 2021 delivers the performance you require to get your work done faster. 

In addition, you can expand your capabilities by connecting your SOLIDWORKS desktop solutions to the 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS cloud portfolio to tackle more challenges and accelerate innovation together.

Get a sneak peek at what you can expect from the new release and be sure to register for one of our Virtual Launch Event sessions below.

Launch-Graphic-400x400

Assembly-Functionality

EXPANDED FUNCTIONALITY

As with every annual SOLIDWORKS release, extra features and functions are at the forefront, including improved assembly simplification, flexibility for part design and more.
 
Simulation-Meshing

ENHANCED SIMULATION

Improved functionality and performance to Simulation means your virtual testing studies will be more accurate through improved meshing, contact stabilization and more.

Drawing-Performance

IMPROVED PERFORMANCE

Experience the power you need to keep pace with the competition with performance improvements in many areas including PDM, assemblies, drawings and more.

Cloud-Collaboration

CLOUD COLLABORATION

Connect the power of SOLIDWORKS to the cloud to take advantage of collaboration tools, secure data management and PLM tools.

Next-Level-Validation-2

NEXT LEVEL VALIDATION

Leverage advanced simulation powered by SIMULIA to take advantage of complex simulation studies, analysis reuse and more.

Cloud-Design

CLOUD-BASED DESIGN

3DEXPERIENCE WORKS cloud-based design tools are tailored for specific tasks including complex shapes, sheet metal parts and more.

While we wish we could see all of you in person, we have made the decision to make our SOLIDWORKS 2021 Launch Events entirely virtual for the health and safety of our customers, employees and communities. But just because we won't be meeting face-to-face doesn't mean the content stops! This year, our Launch Season will feature live, virtual general sessions plus bonus live sessions and on-demand content. 

LIVE GENERAL SESSIONS: While we can't actually hit the road, we will still include multiple "tour stops" for our What's New in 2021 general sessions. Register for the event with your local engineering community and our local Alignex team members, or find any date that fits your schedule.

Are there additional SOLIDWORKS add-on products that you have researched in the past but maybe didn't have the time, budget or personnel to implement? Here's your chance to take another look and get all your questions answered.

NOTE: These 30-minute bonus sessions feature live demos and Q&A for SOLIDWORKS add-on products, not "What's New" content. 

Another-Look-Composer

TAKE ANOTHER LOOK:
KILLER PRODUCT DOCUMENTATION

THURSDAY, OCT. 15, 2020 | 1:00 PM CDT

You could be easily repurposing your 3D models to rapidly create (and update) high-quality assembly instructions, product/part manuals and animations – all fully associated with your 3D designs. See how much simpler your technical communications could be for both CAD and non-technical users.
