SOLIDWORKS Professional

SOLIDWORKS Professional includes libraries of standard parts and fasteners, tools to help utilize imported geometry, and utilities that search designs for errors. Your designs can be realistically rendered with PhotoView 360 software and shared with the eDrawings Professional package, an easily deployed tool that lets everyone view, measure, and markup the design data.

SOLIDWORKS Professional also gives you an integrated data management system that securely stores all project information and tracks all design changes. Streamline your design process with SOLIDWORKS Professional.

Key Features of SOLIDWORKS Professional Include

3D Solid Modeling

Create and edit 3D part and assembly models and create 2D drawings that automatically update with design changes

Conceptual Design

Create layout sketches; apply motors and forces to check mechanism performance; import images and scans to use as a reference for creating 3D geometry

Large Assembly Design

Create and manage extremely large designs, and work in either detailed or simplified modes

Advanced Surfacing

Create and edit complex solid and surface geometry, including stylish C2 surfaces

Sheet Metal

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

Mold Design

Design molded parts and the tooling to create them, including core and cavity, draft, automated parting surfaces, and mold base components

Design Automation

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

2D Drawings

Quickly create production-ready 2D drawings that clearly communicate your designs

Bill of Materials (BOM)

Generate automated BOMs with balloon note callouts and cut lists that update with model changes; output to Excel or upload to ERP/MRP systems

Automatic Cost Estimation

Estimate part costs automatically using built-in cost templates, make more informed design decisions based on cost and automate quoting processes

Eliminate Interferences

Check for interferences, collisions and clearances between components to ensure proper operation

Collaborate and Communicate

Share CAD data with others, and collaborate quickly and easily on product designs

SOLIDWORKS Product Data Management (PDM)

Manage and find your data: manage your design data with automatic revision control, data security, access control, search for components, find existing designs for re-use
