Transform ideas into innovative products

with intuitive and powerful design solutions

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

Choose the right SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD Software package for you

SOLIDWORKS Standard

SOLIDWORKS Professional

SOLIDWORKS Premium

Delivers comprehensive 3D design capabilities, performance, and ease-of-use. Not only can users create parametric parts, assemblies, and production level drawings, but they also have all the needed tools to generate complex surfaces, sheet metal flat patterns, and structural weldments.
Gives users integrated file management tools that securely store all project information and track all design changes to help streamline the design process and increase overall design productivity.
