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.
You can set up virtual real-world environments to test your product designs before manufacture. Test against a broad range of parameters during the design process, such as durability, static and dynamic response, motion of assembly, heat transfer, fluid dynamics, and plastics injection molding.
Included within the SOLIDWORKS Premium 3D CAD design package, SOLIDWORKS Simulation provides core design analysis simulation tools to test for strength and safety, analyse assembly kinematics, and simulate product performance to help you make the decisions that improve quality. Full integration with SOLIDWORKS creates a short learning curve, eliminating redundant tasks often required with traditional analysis tools. Component materials, connection, and relationships defined during the design process are carried through to simulation. A wide range of geometry types are supported enabling simulation of real-world performance of solid, thin-walled and structural features.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation Standard gives product engineers an intuitive virtual testing environment for static linear, time-based motion, and high-cycle fatigue simulation, so they can answer common engineering challenges with this SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD embedded solution.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional goes beyond core simulation and expands the virtual test environment to product durability and natural frequencies, heat transfer and buckling, and pressure analysis and complex loading.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium software provides a full range of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) simulation capabilities to ensure product robustness and bolsters the depth of Simulation Professional with additional features, including tools for simulating nonlinear and dynamic response and dynamic loading.
SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation takes the complexity out of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to quickly and easily simulate fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces critical to your design.
Predict and avoid manufacturing defects during the earliest stages of plastics part and injection mold design using SolidWorks Plastics simulation software. Companies that design plastic parts or molds can improve quality, eliminate costly mold rework, and decrease time-to-market.
