SOLIDWORKS® Professional gives you all the power of SOLIDWORKS Standard with additional capabilities that increase productivity, ensure accuracy, and help you communicate your design information more effectively.
SOLIDWORKS Professional includes libraries of standard parts and fasteners, tools to automatically estimate manufacturing costs and help convert imported geometry, and utilities that search designs for errors. Realistically render your designs with PhotoView 360 software and then share them with others using eDrawings® Professional. SOLIDWORKS Professional also gives you integrated file management tools that securely store all project information and track all design changes. Streamline your design process and increase design productivity with SOLIDWORKS Professional.
SOLIDWORKS Professional Solutions Include:
SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software provides libraries of prebuilt 3D CAD models and other CAD data that help accelerate the design process, save time and development costs, and increase productivity.
Design for Cost (SOLIDWORKS Costing)
Save time and development costs, avoid redesigns, and increase productivity by continuously checking your designs against cost targets with automated manufacturing cost estimation tools fully integrated with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software.
ECAD/MCAD Collaboration (CircuitWorks™)
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.
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.
Use powerful eDrawings® software to increase collaboration, accelerate your design process, and increase productivity by easily viewing SOLIDWORKS 3D models and 2D drawings in an email-ready format.
Design for Manufacturability
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.
Tolerance Analysis (TolAnalyst)
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.
Reverse Engineering (Scan to 3D)
Streamline the design process using SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD to create new designs—or recreate existing designs—based on ones that already exist. Reverse engineering can accelerate product development and reduce risk, save time, and increase productivity.
