SolidWorks is a complete 3D design solution that gives you the software tools you need for mechanical design, product data management, design validation and simulation, and technical communication. Integrating powerful design tools, including industry-leading part, assembly, and drafting capabilities, with integrated simulation, cost analysis, rendering, animation, and product data management in SolidWorks makes developing and sharing design ideas faster, easier, and smarter.

As part of the SolidWorks suite of product development solutions that include design, simulation, sustainable design, technical communication, and data management, SolidWorks provides a comprehensive solution for engineers and designers. By providing application-specific tools for sheet metal, weldments, piping systems, surfacing, and tool and die design, as well as a comprehensive component parts library, SolidWorks Premium enables you to work efficiently and make better design decisions within your product development process.

Finite element analysis (FEA) packages in the early days of development were often very complex, cumbersome and not very intuitive to use. This has certainly changed significantly in the meantime. FEA is currently more integrated and more user-friendly.

The integrated FEA or FEM simulation tools of SOLIDWORKS support you effectively:

  • Bring innovative, high-quality and, most importantly, defect-free products to market faster and at lower cost.
  • Validate and, if necessary, revise design concepts within the software
  • Map feasibility tests of new production methods, e.g. generative manufacturing
