Our software tools cover the design process—from design and validation to technical and data management. The intuitive design interface and integrated software work together and give you the freedom to focus on innovation. You can maximize the productivity of your design and engineering resources to create products better, faster, and more cost-effectively.
Built-in intelligence takes the guess work out of 3D design. Intelligent design tools minimize training needs and let you quickly detail designs without error. You can automatically dimension manufacturing features in 3D, check dimensional completeness, and graphically display dimensional status on 2D drawings. Automatic interference and collision detection makes sure all parts fit together before you build a physical prototype, reducing cost and shortening the overall design cycle for faster time to market.
Improved collaboration drives new ideas and expands opportunities. With SolidWorks solutions, you and your team can easily manage product data, share designs, automate workflows, and securely share design data across your organization, with clients, and with external partners. You can deliver compelling product detail with representations of 3D models, 2D drawings, animations, and photo-realistic renderings before manufacture. You can also leverage existing 3D data to create dynamic technical communications like interactive assembly instructions, exploded formats, and compelling project proposals that differentiate you from the competition.
Lower total cost of ownership comes from higher efficiency. SolidWorks 3D design solutions are quick to deploy, easy to use, and simple to administer. Instead of spending time maintaining your CAD system, you can capitalize on new opportunities, reduce costs, and get to market faster. The opportunity costs of NOT using SolidWorks design solutions are high. In a 2006 MIT survey of SolidWorks users, 95% reported productivity gains, 54% reduced their time-to-market by an average of 20%, and overall materials savings averaged 18%.
