SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD

Transform ideas into innovative products

with intuitive and powerful design solutions

SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD

SOLIDWORKS® 3D CAD, the foundation of the entire SOLIDWORKS portfolio of solutions, provides engineers, designers, and manufacturers with easy-to-learn, extremely powerful functionality to design and deliver products. All SOLIDWORKS solutions support a single-window complete integration with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD.

As a result, all SOLIDWORKS products work together seamlessly, using the same design data, so each design change is updated automatically across all applications.

Why Choose SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD?

SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software enables rapid creation of parts, assemblies, and 2D drawings, and is extensively used in many applications, including automotive, shipbuilding, and aerospace industries, industrial and architectural design, prosthetics, and many more.

It allows engineers to create, validate, communicate, and manage the product development process effectively and efficiently. It is the most user-friendly CAD solution that enables companies to shorten their product development time, reduce manufacturing costs, and improve the quality and reliability of their products.

Key Benefits:

Create sophisticated part and assembly designs quickly and efficiently using powerful, easy-to-use software

Easily find and leverage existing engineering data to create new designs and speed up product development

Flexible 3D modeling tools cover the full range of design tasks to quickly develop your product concepts

Verify operation and performance while creating your design with fully integrated simulation and analysis tools

Create production-ready 2D drawings that communicate how your design should be manufactured and assembled

Quickly and easily create powerful images and animations to communicate your design intent and functionality

Reduce costs and get to market faster with simulation tools for motion and structural analysis

Verify that components can be assembled properly before going into production

TOP 10 ENHANCEMENTS IN SOLIDWORKS CAD 2024

Adhere to manufacturing standards with slot options for tabs, automatically propagate slots to intersecting tabs and create stamp/form features directly in Sketch.

Simplify appearence adjustments with an intuitive interface, control textures and maps more precisely and apply advanced rendering techniques effortlessly.

Easily collaborate with users on older SOLIDWORKS versions and save designs in formats compatible with versions up to two years prior.

Manage corner treatments faster with grouping and automation and automatically create open corners for connection blocks.

Simplify large assemblies quickly with rules-based defeature options, incorporate post-assembly machining operations seamlessly and filter unwanted components during STEP file imports.

Update electrical routes selectively for improved performance, exclude parts from 3D while including them in BOMs and reports and add electrical routes with ease.

Speed up sketching with instant dimension editing, create symmetric patterns effortlessly and customize units of measurement in notes and tables.

Auto balloon components in 2D control panel drawings, simplify component marks in reports and configure wire properties using Excel automation.

Reattach dangling dimensions efficiently, improve drawing detailing with better alignment and adherence to standards and exclude hidden sketches from DXF™ Flat-Pattern easily.

Export Hole Tables to 3D PDF effortlessly, edit dangling dimensions easily and display dual dimensions for clarity.
