Create and edit 3D part and assembly models and create 2D drawings that automatically update with design changes
Create layout sketches; apply motors and forces to check mechanism performance; import images and scans to use as a reference for creating 3D geometry
Create and manage extremely large designs, and work in either detailed or simplified modes
Create and edit complex solid and surface geometry, including stylish C2 surfaces
Design from scratch or convert your 3D part to sheet metal; includes automatic flattening of sheet metal parts with bend length compensation
Quickly design welded structures composed of structural members, plates, and gussets
Design molded parts and the tooling to create them, including core and cavity, draft, automated parting surfaces, and mold base components
Generate and document 3D mechanical systems, including pipe/tube paths, pipe spools and pipe slope
Import electrical connection information, generate and document 3D electrical route paths
Automate repetitive design tasks— including part, assembly, and drawing generation—using DriveWorksXpress
Automatically create multiple versions of parts and assemblies and save them in the same file for easy reference
SOLIDWORKS Motion uses assembly mates, part contacts and a robust physics-based solver to accurately determine the physical dynamic movements of an assembly under load
Calculate stresses, deformations, and factor of safety of geometry under loads to intuitively identify areas prone to failure
SOLIDWORKS FloXpress provides initial fluid flow simulation and reporting
Quickly create production-ready 2D drawings that clearly communicate your designs
Generate automated BOMs with balloon note callouts and cut lists that update with model changes; output to Excel or upload to ERP/MRP systems
Estimate part costs automatically using built-in cost templates, make more informed design decisions based on cost and automate quoting processes
Check for interferences, collisions and clearances between components to ensure proper operation
Share CAD data with others, and collaborate quickly and easily on product designs.
