Features & Benefits

Gain Speed and Flexibility in Managing Large Assemblies

Large Assembly ManagementDesign and change components easily from within the assembly to ensure optimal fit. Gain unparalleled performance for designing large assemblies with tens of thousands of parts. Drag and drop parts and features into place. Speed assembly design with incomparable ease and performance.

Consumer product design tools and Complex Surfaces

Complex Surface DesignImprove the aesthetics and ergonomics of your product designs by generating advanced shapes, complex surfaces, and patterns. Save time when creating new geometry or using imported surfaces with a variety of built-in tools such as drag handles that make surface manipulation easy and intuitive.

SWIFT™

MateXpertSWIFT technology has mastered 3D CAD's most frustrating details, techniques and workarounds on behalf of all users, whether novices or experts. Now users can focus on what they want to accomplish, not on the rules of 3D CAD software. SWIFT powers a series of tools that diagnose and cure problems in feature order, mates, sketch relationships, and dimension application.

Built-in Stress Analysis Wizard

SolidWorks SimulationXpressGain basic insight into how parts will function under real-world conditions with SOLIDWORKS SimulationXpress, a point-and-click stress analysis Wizard built into the system. SOLIDWORKS SimulationXpress guides you step-by-step through the design analysis process to help improve the integrity of your designs.

Machine design tools

Machine DesignMake use of a full set of weldment design, analysis, and documentation tools. Get best-in-class, fully associative sheet-metal capabilities that allow you to move rapidly from the design phase to final manufacturing drawings. Save time with a library of machine design features.

Create Complete Drawings Automatically

SolidWorks DrawingsConstruct production-ready detailed drawings without drawing a single line or arc. the software does it for you, eliminating time-consuming drawing view creation, manipulation and maintenance. Show your design from multiple angles and enlarge details of specific components easily with a few selections.

DriveWorksXpress Automation

DriveWorksXpressAutomate repetitive design tasks by capturing valuable design rules inside SOLIDWORKS allowing you to automatically generate design and manufacturing outputs required to create new and variant products. You will save time and be able to specify the products whilst maintaining your engineering controls.

Maintain Compatibility with Built-in Translators

Import dataExchange CAD data using a wide variety of file formats including: CGR (CATIA® graphics), HCG (CATIA highly compressed graphics), Pro/ENGINEER®, IPT (Autodesk Inventor®), Mechanical Desktop®, Unigraphics®, PAR (Solid Edge), CADKEY®, IGES, STEP, Parasolid®, SAT (ACIS®), VDA-FS, VRML, STL, DWG, DXF, TIFF, JPG, Viewpoint, RealityWave, and HSF (Hoops).

Share Product Designs with Innovative SOLIDWORKS eDrawings Files

Supply accurate representations of 2D and 3D models that everyone can understand through the unique capabilities of SOLIDWORKS eDrawings. Animate 2D drawings with exciting 3D effects. Share designs more effectively with your entire product design team, including product managers, marketing managers, manufacturing specialists, customers, and suppliers.
