SOLIDWORKS Standard


SOLIDWORKS Standard delivers robust 3D design capabilities, performance, and ease-of-use. Not only can you create fully detailed parts, assemblies, and production-level drawings, but you can access all the tools required to generate complex surfaces, sheet metal flat patterns, and structural welded assemblies. SOLIDWORKS Standard also includes wizards to automate designs, perform stress analysis, and determine the environmental impact of components. Discover increased design productivity with SOLIDWORKS Standard.

Solutions

SOLIDWORKS Professional


SOLIDWORKS Professional gives you all the power of SOLIDWORKS Standard with additional capabilities that increase productivity, ensure accuracy, and help you communicate your design information more effectively.

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.
