Key benefits of SolidWorks 3D CAD design software:

  • Easy to learn, easy to use, making you instantly productive
  • Customisable to fit your experience and specialty
  • Wizards, experts and diagnostics tools take the complexity out of CAD, with powerful modelling tools making it easy for you to create the complex forms needed
  • Sketches update automatically in the 3D CAD model
  • Powerful modelling enables you to easily produce sophisticated, beautiful forms that differentiate your product in today's competitive market
  • Automates repetitive tasks that slow design and development
  • Speed design – copy, mirror and pattern geometry. Create a limitless number of design variations from a single model quickly and easily
  • View rotate and even fly-through complex assembly designs for more clarity
  • Check interferences, clearances and alignment throughout the full range of motion
  • Jumpstart your design with intelligent libraries of reusable parts and a library of intelligent fasteners that assemble themselves automatically
  • Create brochure-ready high quality product renderings selecting from a range of options for materials, textures and backgrounds; capture animations of your design to share with suppliers and customers
  • SolidWorks Large Design Review lets you quickly open, navigate, walk-through, measure, section and create snapshot views of massive assemblies, adding annotations as you go
  • SolidWorks software creates comprehensive 2D drawings that are automatically linked with your 3D model. As the 3D model is modified so too is the 2D drawing updated ensuring all views are up to date and drawings are to scale
  • Standard templates and automated drawing checks streamline common design checking tasks
  • Automated creation of bills of material (BOMS), balloons and annotations, plus expert tools for dimensioning and tolerancing
  • Visual tools compare drawings and models, highlighting differences between design versions

There are many more features which all go towards making this the leading 3D CAD design package. For more information read the SolidWorks brochure.
