SolidWorks Solutions for CAD Users

CAD users are a diverse group, ranging from those who view CAD designs to those who push the limits of a CAD system’s capabilities. Regardless of their role, CAD users need a toolset that can accommodate them all.

Whether you’re a full-time or casual CAD user, you need a suite of solutions that can help you get the job done from concept to detailing to manufacturing. SOLIDWORKS covers all these needs and beyond, in a single, easy-to-use interface.

It’s All About Ease-of-use and Efficiency

Thanks to its user interface, SOLIDWORKS is well-known for its ease of learning and use. It also provides all functions necessary for design through manufacturing, allowing users to work efficiently and concurrently.

Creating Compelling Visual Content for All Development Stages

Leverage 3D CAD data to create photorealistic marketing content that is print- and web-ready—from static images to animations and immersive web content. Produce realistic content that clearly depicts products in the real world without physical prototypes.

Clearly Explain Your Product or Process

Even nontechnical users can leverage product designs with SOLIDWORKS Composer to create associative 2D and 3D deliverables, such as user manuals, field repair documentation, and marketing content that automatically stay current with all design changes.

Streamline Sheet Metal Design and Manufacture

Using SOLIDWORKS you can dramatically reduce the time required to design and manufacture sheet metal parts and assemblies, helping you to get your products delivered on time and on budget.

Streamline the Design of Sheet Metal Parts and Assemblies

SOLIDWORKS delivers a powerful suite of tools that provides complete control over the design and manufacture of sheet metal parts and assemblies.

Starting with design, SOLIDWORKS powerful modelling tools enable you to quickly create complex sheet metal designs complete with a fully annotated and associative flat pattern. SOLIDWORKS also provides the ability to add all the manufacturing information directly to the model, eliminating the need to create traditional flat pattern drawings.

SOLIDWORKS PDM then takes over managing the entire Sheet Metal design-to -manufacture process. With an easy-to-use Windows Explorer interface, members of your design and manufacturing teams can easily find and view critical design information. The live preview in eDrawings provides a great way for stakeholders to review and collaborate on sheet metal designs complete with its flat pattern configuration without having to open it in SOLIDWORKS.

For CNC manufacturing, use SOLIDWORKS PDM’s out-of-the-box task to automate the creation of a flat pattern file straight from your SOLIDWORKS design. PDM tasks can be invoked manually or triggered via a workflow, a great way to save time and reduce the risk of mistakes.

When your design is ready for review, SOLIDWORKS PDM workflows can automate tracking of approvals, eliminating the need for manual sign-off procedures. Just follow the next workflow step defined for your project and SOLIDWORKS PDM will take care of notifying the right people, maintaining both accuracy and accountability.

For external partners and suppliers who need to collaborate on design projects, powerful Web connection capabilities enable browser-based secure vault access and editing, from anywhere on any device. Sheet Metal designs complete with their associative manufacturing information can be reviewed and checked right there on the shop floor.  Documents can be made either view only, or fully editable, and access to PDM workflows gives stakeholders the ability to change a documents status, providing decision-making on the go!

Know Your Designs Will Pass the Injection-molding Process

Producing high-quality, plastic injection-molded parts more quickly and cost-effectively than the competition has become a critical factor for manufacturing success in today’s global market. However, producing injection-molded parts that are free of manufacturing defects requires a complex mix of time, temperature, pressure, material, and variations in tooling or part design.

Don’t cave to complexity. Read this white paper to learn how designers, moldmakers and manufacturers are saving time and money by answering these questions with SOLIDWORKS Plastics before cutting steel:
  • Does the part geometry meet draft and wall thickness requirements?
  • How long should the injection/cooling/ejection cycle be? What’s the optimal temperature for the material, cooling channels, and mold?
  • What’s the right filling/packing pressure and best material to use for a particular part?
  • And, will the use of special inserts, side actions, additional injection gates, special secondary operations, or unique cooling channel designs improve part quality or shorten cycle times?
