The Complete 3D Design Solution

SOLIDWORKS Part Design

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.
