The Complete 3D Design Solution
SOLIDWORKS Ensures Your Designs Work Seamlessly For Manufacturing
SOLIDWORKS software integrates seamlessly with the latest manufacturing platforms—including 3D Printers and a wide variety of CAM software. Now you can generate design data in any format with confidence.
Plus, when you make a design change, SOLIDWORKS automatically updates all your data — including the bill of materials (BOM) for the manufacturer — to avoid mistakes and keep your project on schedule.
Highly Intuitive User Interface with the Best Customer Support in the industry
SOLIDWORKS® 3D modeling software is the core design tool you need to cut design time, reduce production costs, and increase innovation. The software features a complete range of 3D design tools, a highly intuitive user interface, and the best customer support in the CAD industry — making it the premier design tool of choice for 3D professionals worldwide.
Verify operation and performance while creating your design
SOLIDWORKS integrates easy-to-use analysis tools with design to verify operation and performance during product development. SOLIDWORKS design analysis increases product innovation by reducing risk in design, significantly reduces the number of physical prototypes needed, and helps lower material and other costs.
