With the need to produce higher-quality products faster and at lower cost, companies are demanding more from their design tools. They also need to balance the functional requirements that meet design goals, are functional, and satisfy customer demands. SOLIDWORKS and the 3DEXPERIENCE® Works portfolio provide a wide range of design and engineering capabilities that help you move from concept to final assembly.



3D CAD: Intuitive 3D design and product development solutions from SOLIDWORKS® let you conceptualize, create, validate, communicate, manage, and transform your innovative ideas into great product designs.

Electrical Design

Electrical Design: SOLIDWORKS® Electrical solutions simplify electrical product design with specific tools for engineers and intuitive interfaces for faster embedded electrical system design.


SOLIDWORKS MBD: Define, organize, and publish 3D annotations, including 3D model data in industry-standard file formats.


SOLIDWORKS eDrawings: Enable easy design communication and collaboration across a multiple CAD environment.


Academia: SOLIDWORKS provides students, educators, and researchers professional software, local support, and a connection to a massive user community to help them succeed.


The ability to manage information throughout a product’s lifecycle is a proven tactic organizations use to more effectively plan, design, manufacture and manage products. With Governance solutions in the 3DEXPERIENCE Works portfolio, companies can improve product development and delivery with efficient, reliable, and repeatable processes involving the right people, at the right time.



Collaboration: Collaborate with your team using integrated social tools. Engage with management, customers, suppliers, or any other stakeholders throughout the product development process.

Product Data Management

Product Data Management: SOLIDWORKS® Data Management solutions offer a range of applications with capabilities for quickly and efficiently managing data files and documentation to maximize productivity and improve product quality.

Data and Product Lifecycle Management in the Cloud

Data and Product Lifecycle Management in the Cloud: Solutions from ENOVIA enable you to connect all of your organization’s most vital resources - people, software tools and data - in one unified, secure place to collaborate on designs more easily keeping projects and people on track.


With the 3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation solutions, companies can assess the performance, reliability and safety of products throughout the design process. By integrating design and simulation designers and engineers gain the insight needed to make the decisions that lead to increased product quality and reduced prototyping and physical testing costs.


Simulation Solutions

Simulation: Simulation solutions for SOLIDWORKS® provide an easy-to-use portfolio of analysis tools for predicting a product’s real-world physical behavior by virtually testing CAD models.

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation: Simulate the fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces that are critical to the success of your designs.


SOLIDWORKS Plastics: Predict and avoid manufacturing defects in plastic part and injection mold designs, eliminating costly rework, improving part quality, and decreasing time to market.


3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation: Featuring Abaqus technology, 3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation brings advanced simulation capabilities to your product development process.


Even the most innovative ideas will fail if they can’t be manufactured efficiently. Companies require a set of tools that enable design and manufacturing teams to work concurrently—from ERP to the shop floor. The 3DEXPERIENCE Works portfolio streamlines communication between departments to identify and reduce manufacturability errors at any phase, and helps accelerate the release to production.



CAM: SOLIDWORKS® CAM - powered by CAMWorks - uses rules-based technology that enables you to integrate design and manufacturing in one application, connecting design and manufacturing teams through a common software tool and 3D model.


SOLIDWORKS Inspection: Reduce the time needed to create inspection documentation, helping to eliminate input errors, improve quality, and reduce time to market.

3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace

3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace: The 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace helps designers collaborate with qualified industrial service providers to easily manufacture, find standard parts or hire temporary engineering


Companies need to connect target customers with personalized value messaging to sell effectively and stay head of their competition. As part of this process, marketers and designers must be able to collaborate to create the perfect sales and marketing plan even before the product is built. The 3DEXPERIENCE Works portfolio provides the tools to stay on top of your go-to-market plans from ideation to commercialization.



Visualization: Turn your 3D CAD data into photo-quality images, animations, and interactive 3D content that bring your products to life.


SOLIDWORKS Composer: Easily repurpose existing 3D models to rapidly create and update high-quality graphical assets that are fully associated with your 3D design.
