Simulation & Design Validation


SOLIDWORKS Simulation & Design Validation Image

SOLIDWORKS offers a suite of simulation products that let you set up a virtual real-world environment to test your 3D designs. SOLIDWORKS Simulation tools lowers cost and speeds time to market by reducing the number of physical prototypes before going into production. 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.

Efficiently evaluate performance, improve quality, and boost product innovation with the powerful and comprehensive suite of SOLIDWORKS Simulation packages. Choose one of the SOLIDWORKS Simulation packages below to get more information and see which option is the best fit for your business.

  • SOLIDWORKS Electrical Professional

    SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium Info

    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 Electrical Professional

    SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional Info

    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 Electrical Professional

    SOLIDWORKS Simulation Standard Info

    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.

    SOLIDWORKS Electrical Professional

    SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation Info

    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.

    SOLIDWORKS Electrical Professional

    SOLIDWORKS Plastics Info

    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.

    SOLIDWORKS Electrical Professional

    SOLIDWORKS Sustainability Info

    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.
