The SOLIDWORKS CAD software is a mechanical design automation application that lets designers quickly sketch out ideas, experiment with features and dimensions, and produce models and detailed drawings.
SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD:
Create sophisticated part and assembly designs quickly and efficiently using powerful, easy-to-use software.
Design Reuse and Automation:
Easily find and leverage existing engineering data to create new designs and speed up product development.
Part and Assembly Modeling:
Flexible 3D modeling tools cover the full range of design tasks to quickly develop your product concepts.
Verify that components can be assembled properly before going into production.
Design for Cost: Manufacturing Cost Estimation and Quoting:
Continuously check your designs against cost targets with integrated automated manufacturing cost estimation tools.
Create production-ready 2D drawings that communicate how your design should be manufactured and assembled.
Verify operation and performance while creating your design with fully integrated simulation and analysis tools.
Save frequently used parts, features, and templates with easy access from inside the SOLIDWORKS environment.
3D Animations and Photorealistic Renderings:
Quickly and easily create powerful images and animations to communicate your design intent and functionality.
