SOLIDWORKS Simulation (CAE)

Efficiently evaluate performance, improve quality, and boost product innovation with the powerful and extensive suite of SOLIDWORKS Simulation packages. 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, assembly motion, heat transfer, fluid dynamics, and plastics injection molding.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium

Overview

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium is enabling you to evaluate your designs for nonlinear and dynamic response, dynamic loading, and composite materials efficiently. SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium adds to the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional to provide valuable insights to improve product reliability in the most cost effective manner, no matter the material or use environment.



SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium Include


SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional

Overview

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional allows Product Engineers to evaluate structural product performance under a wide range of physical scenarios efficiently with it’s powerful virtual testing environment. Fully embedded with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD, SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional enables engineers to determine product mechanical resistance, product durability, natural frequencies, and test heat transfer and buckling instabilities. Pressure vessel analysis and complex loading is also supported. You can optimize products for weight, vibration, or instability based on a range of physical and geometrical parameters. With tight integration and a consistent user interface across SOLIDWORKS solutions, you can use the powerful capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional early in the design process to maximize product quality and reduce costs.
