Redefine “Aid” in Computer Aided Design with the Design Assistant

The growing power of AI is a hot topic, with many humans wondering if machines will replace us in creative fields. At SOLIDWORKS®, we believe AI-powered design tools are meant to enhance the way we work, not take over the work for us. We achieve this with the Design Assistant, found in the next-generation design solutions in SOLIDWORKS Cloud. 

Meet the Design Assistant

With the power of AI and machine learning, the Design Assistant learns from you and makes suggestions based on your design, automating and removing tedious and repetitive tasks. Every time you use the parametric, sheet metal, and structure design tools in SOLIDWORKS Cloud, the AI learns from you and is able to make better recommendations based on the way you like to design, continually evolving and learning from your particular choices.
