SOLIDWORKS Professional

Giving all the power of SOLIDWORKS Standard in your hand is SOLIDWORKS Professional. Its additional capabilities help accelerate productivity, ensure accuracy and support communication of all design information effectively and efficiently.

Your tasks become easy with SOLIDWORKS Professional for it includes libraries of standard parts and fasteners, followed by tools that automatically estimate manufacturing costs and help in utilizing imported geometry. It also includes libraries of utilities that search designs for errors.

With the help of SOLIDWORKS Professional your designs get a realistic rendering over PhotoView 360 software, and can be shared with eDrawings professional package, which itself is an easily deployed tool allowing easy access for viewing, measuring and marking up the design data.

Concisely, it gives you an integrated data management system which stores all project information in a secured manner while helping you track all the design changes.

Considering all the above, SOLIDWORKS Professional License is a complete 3D package at an affordable SOLIDWORKS Professional price.

ECAD/MCAD Collaboration (CircuitWorks™)

View Pdf

Share data between electrical CAD (ECAD) and mechanical CAD (MCAD) designers using the CircuitWorks™ tool in SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software. CircuitWorks enables users to share, compare, update, and track electrical design data so users can more quickly resolve electrical-mechanical integration problems. Mechanical and electrical engineers can work closely in creating complex designs, speeding up the product development process, saving time and development costs, and accelerating time-to-market.

Design for Cost (SOLIDWORKS Costing)

SOLIDWORKS automatic cost estimation tools are fully integrated with 3D CAD, enabling designers and engineers to continuously check their designs against cost targets.

CAD Standards Checking

Establish design standards and easily check drawings (or models) with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software to create uniform designs and documentation, which speeds up product development, saves time, and increases productivity.

eDrawings® Professional

SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD tools include the powerful eDrawings collaboration tool which enables you to view both 3D models and 2D drawings in a unique email-ready format. When used with SOLIDWORKS drawings, the eDrawings viewer provides insight into the design using unique 3D animation between 2D views.

Advanced Design for Manufacturing

Check your design and verify manufacturability of your product early in the development process using SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD, saving time and development costs, improving productivity, and accelerating your time-to-market.

Automated Tolerance Stack-Up Analysis (TolAnalyst)

Your browser does not have the necessary plugin to display this content.

Quickly and easily check dimensions and tolerances using SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software to assess the manufacturability of your design long before reaching production. Check parts and assembly tolerances during design, accelerating the design process, saving time and development costs, and increasing productivity.

Advanced Photorealistic Rendering

SOLIDWORKS Visualize Standard enables designers, engineers, and content creators across all industries to create compelling visual content of their designs with unparalleled ease and flexibility. By utilizing photo-quality content early in the design process, more informed design decisions can be made, as well as receiving useful early feedback from sales teams and potential customers.

SOLIDWORKS File Management

SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard in SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software helps individuals and small workgroups manage project data, control their design revisions, and control access to files, accelerating the design process and increasing productivity.
