SOLIDWORKS Simulation gives product engineers access to powerful FEA (Finite Element Analysis) capabilities that help enable them to speed up product innovation. Leveraging the familiar SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD environment, this extensive technology isn’t just about making sure your product works, it’s about understanding how your product will behave in the real-world. Test all the common failure modes including static, fatigue, buckling, thermal, dynamic, non-linear, motion, fluid flow, and plastics injection moldability early and often when it has the greatest impact on your design using SOLIDWORKS Simulation.
Simulation-driven product development takes 3D design to another level so you can predict the performance of your product under real-world operating conditions to innovate, detect potential issues, and correct them before prototyping, tooling, and production.
Ensure product robustness using the range of powerful structural simulation capabilities in SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium. It goes beyond SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional and includes additional tools for simulating nonlinear and dynamic response, dynamic loading, and composite materials.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional software provides powerful tools to expand the capabilities of your virtual testing environment, optimize your validated designs, and helps ensure cost-effective manufacturing.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation Standard gives you an intuitive virtual testing environment for linear static, motion and fatigue simulation, so you can answer common engineering challenges with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD embedded solution.
Efficiently simulate fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces critical to your design's success with SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation. Driven by engineering goals, SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation takes the complexity out of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and enables Product Engineers to use CFD insights for making their technical decisions in a concurrent engineering approach.
Predict and avoid manufacturing defects during the earliest stages of plastics part and injection mold design using SOLIDWORKS Plastics simulation software. Companies that design plastic parts or molds can improve quality, eliminate costly mold rework, and decrease time-to-market.
Conduct life cycle assessment (LCA) on parts or assemblies directly within the SOLIDWORKS 3D design window. Search for comparable materials, see in real time how they affect environmental impact, and easily document your findings.
