The Standard in 3D Modeling Software
SOLIDWORKS® Standard 2020 delivers robust 3D design capabilities, performance, and ease-of-use. Not only can you create fully detailed parts, assemblies, and production-level drawings, but you can access all the tools required to generate complex surfaces, sheet metal flat patterns, and structural welded assemblies. SOLIDWORKS Standard also includes wizards to automate designs, perform stress analysis, and determine the environmental impact of components.
Discover increased design productivity with SOLIDWORKS Standard.
Straightforward 3D CAD software, offering unmatched 3D design capabilities, performance, and ease-of-use.
3D Solid Modeling
Accelerate your design, increase productivity, and reduce cost with 3D solid modeling with lifelike visualization and virtual testing before manufacturing.
Large Assembly Design
Simplify design of large assemblies with easy-to-use tools to create, manage, and visualize large and complex designs that can contain more than 100,000 parts.
3D Animations and Basic Rendering
Quickly and easily create powerful images and animations to communicate your design intent and functionality.
Verify operation and performance while creating your design with fully integrated wizard driven simulation and analysis tools.
Verify that your parts and assemblies will fit, assemble, and operate correctly
Create production-ready 2D drawings that communicate how your design should be manufactured and assembled.
Sheet Metal Design
Quickly and cost-effectively create a wide range of sheet metal part designs using a wide range of flexible tools to meet your specific needs.
Quickly create designs that have extrusions and easily generate cut lists and bills of materials to streamline design and manufacturing of welded structures, frames, and bases.
Simplify mold design with fully integrated product design, mold design, and validation that updates all part files automatically to enable changes right up to final manufacturing.
CAD Import and Export
Accelerate design, save time and development costs, and increase productivity by converting CAD data into a format that meets your design needs.

SOLIDWORKS Standard Features & Benefits
The essential tools you need are included with the Standard version
3D Parts, Assemblies & 2D Drawings
Handle all aspects of your part and assembly modeling and create 2D production drawings with SOLIDWORKS Standard:
- 3D solid modeling – Turn ideas and concepts into virtual 3D models
- Assembly Structure Planning (SOLIDWORKS Treehouse) – Quickly lay out your design assembly structure and then export to SOLIDWORKS to automatically create your CAD files.
- 2D Drawings – Create production-ready 2D drawings that communicate how your design should be manufactured and assembled
Visualization & Animation
SOLIDWORKS Standard Motion Manager software enables you to quickly and easily create powerful images and animations to clearly communicate your design intent:
- Rendering — Create basic rendered images and animations quickly, without being a graphics expert.
- Walk-through/Fly-through — Take a virtual tour of your design or record a video to help explain it to others.
- CAD Animation — Demonstrate your design’s basic operation by applying motion, gravity, and component contact or by manually moving components. Then, record and save a video.
Check your design and verify manufacturability of your product early in the development process, saving time and development costs, improving productivity, and accelerating your time-to-market.
- DFMXpress — Compare your design to standardized manufacturing rules to assess if your design can be produced
- Compare parts and drawings for changes —Automatically compare designs to instantly understand differences
- CAD Check for Parts and Tooling —Quickly understand if your parts can be easily removed from mold, cast, or form tooling
- Sheet metal bending and flat pattern —Easily assess if your sheet metal parts can be developed from flat stock
Reuse Parts & Configure
Quickly and easily leverage existing engineering data to create new designs and speed up new product development using SOLIDWORKS Standard software. SOLIDWORKS design reuse and automation tools include:
- CAD Search — Find items quickly in complex designs
- Design automation — Streamline creation of similar parts
- Parts and Assembly Configuration — Generate simple, complex, or similar versions of your design
