SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software provides you accurate design functionality with the intuitive SOLIDWORKS user interface to speed up your design process and make you instantly productive.
Learn how can you raise performance while reducing time?
How SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD design software fulfills all your needs -
You need a tool that will help you exhibit product prototypes using advanced visualization techniques; in fact, a total package that will solve all your designing and prototyping problems. The SOLIDWORKS experience brings you exactly that.
It helps designers quickly become proficient 3D modelers and increases the speed to create and deliver designs, thus Save Time and become more efficientGet Started with SOLIDWORKS
Produce and exhibit a product virtually before it is actually manufactured.
Real-time testing techniques for 3D models.
Collision Detection that allows you to see moving or rotating motion of assembly components in a realistic way
Even the smallest change that you make in your design is automatically and accurately updated. Saves time and errors.
Allows photorealistic presentation of your 3D designs the way you have envisioned it.
What sets SOLIDWORKS apart from other designing softwares is that it is a total 3D CAD solution, which eliminates the design constraints faced by any designer during real-time performance. Design iterations take up to 60% of a designer's time due to the dynamic nature of the work. And any 2D tool is incapable of handling changes that crop up anytime during a project, without consuming excess time. SOLIDWORKS' intuitive interface and design capabilities address these problems efficiently.
SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD modeling helps the designer visualize the mechanical component in 3D at the initial stage itself and make any changes instantly, if needed. This enhances productivity of the designer as he doesn't have to revisit the design at a later stage
SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD modeling makes the entire process of documenting component designs easy, as it comes preloaded with flexible documentation options - like documenting geometries and dimensions of the product, material specifications, bill of materials, etc.
With SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD, designers and engineers can quickly and easily extract that 2D information from a completed model, leaving more time to focus on the design process.
SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD allows you to achieve high precision design, analyse and measure each part individually.
Designing with 3D CAD ensures that the designs are compatible with international standards. CAD supports BSI, ANSI, DIN, CSN, GB, ISO, and GOST drafting platforms. Being compliant with industry standards improves internal communication and results in better outputs
GIVES YOU A COMPETITIVE EDGE
SOLIDWORKS' virtual prototyping and ready drawings allow your designers to develop a product quickly and then take it to the next level as they can keep adding value to it.
Efficient 3D Design
SOLIDWORKS is an easy to use parametric design modular, meaning you can easily edit the design at any stage in the design process
Due to the popularity of SOLIDWORKS it is highly likely that a competitor, supplier or customer will be using it, therefore eliminating the need to translate files from one system to another.
SOLIDWORKS is a very productive 3D CAD Software tool, with its integrated analytical tools and design automation to help stimulate physical behavior such as dynamics, stress, vibration, temperatures etc., to suit all types of design.
Short Learning Curve
SOLIDWORKS offers a consistent user interface throughout and drafting procedures that flow logically from start to finish.
