Simulation & Design Validation
Test your 3D Design in a virtual real-world environment!
SolidWorks offers a suite of simulation packages that enables you to set up virtual real-world environments, so you can test your product designs before manufacture. Test against a broad range of parameters throughout the design process—like durability, static and dynamic response, motion of assembly, heat transfer, and fluid dynamics—to evaluate product performance and make decisions to improve quality and safety.
Simulation lowers cost and speeds time to market by reducing the number of physical prototypes you need before going into production. SolidWorks Simulation helps designers and engineers to innovate, testing and developing new concepts with greater insights.
