Bring your product to market faster
and with less prototyping.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation is a comprehensive structural analysis solution fully embedded within SOLIDWORKS that can be used by designers and analysts alike to enable companies to get their products to market faster and with less cost without sacrificing quality or performance.

Why Choose SOLIDWORKS Simulation?

SOLIDWORKS® Simulation is an easy-to-use portfolio of structural analysis solutions using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to predict a product’s real-world physical behavior by virtually testing CAD models. The portfolio of simulation solutions offers everything designers need—from entry-level to more advanced capabilities—for linear, nonlinear static, and dynamic analysis.

What is the feature difference between the packages?


Design with a Purpose

They aspire to make seating that is comfortable, functional and lasts a lifetime. Hence, quality is at their top priority besides beautiful designs and also, that is why they rigorously test every chair they manufacture.
