  • Product Details
    SOLIDWORKS Professional includes libraries of standard parts and fasteners, tools to automatically estimate manufacturing costs and help convert imported geometry, and utilities that search designs for errors. Realistically render your designs with PhotoView 360 software and then share them with others using eDrawings® Professional. SOLIDWORKS Professional also gives you integrated file management tools that securely store all project information and track all design changes. Streamline your design process and increase design productivity with SOLIDWORKS Professional.

    Professional's rich simulation abilities will let you test product performance in real-life forces and motion. Tolerance stackup analysis ensures manufacturability and helps catch and fix complex assembly issues early in the design process. Finally, extended toolsets will help lay out and document electrical wiring, piping, and tubing, and let you quickly incorporate PC board data into the 3D model. SOLIDWORKS Premium can also work with 3D scanned data. You get all the benefits of a complete 3D design solution with SolidWorks Premium
