Simulation & Design Validation
Test your 3D Design in a virtual real-world environments!
SolidWorks offers a suite of simulation packages that enable 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.

Included with the SolidWorks Premium 3D CAD design package, SolidWorks Simulation provides core tools to test your designs and make the decisions to improve quality. The full integration creates a short learning curve and eliminates the redundant tasks required with traditional analysis tools.
Component materials, connections, and relationships defined during design development are fully understood for Simulation. Products can be tested for strength and safety, and the kinematics fully analyzed. Further, a wide variety of geometry types are supported so you can simulate the real world performance of solid, thin-walled, and structural features.
