SOLIDWORKS

Simulation

Put your design to the test with real-world conditions without the expensive cost of prototyping and physical testing.

The Advantages: 

  • The entire Simulation portfolio is fully embedded into your familiar SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD interface. It supports SOLIDWORKS CAD configurations and materials.  
  • Predict product performance by calculating component stresses, strains, displacements, and factors of safety (FOS). 
  • The estimate fatigue life of components subjected to varying loads, analyze complex and nonlinear material behavior (metals, rubbers, and plastics), and accounts for large deflections and sliding contact in nonlinear analysis, and more. 
  • Determine the optimal or most robust design with parametric “what if” and optimization analyses through simplified simulation studies using bolts, pins, springs, bearings, and edge/spot welds. 
  • Easily export and share SOLIDWORKS Simulation results in an eDrawings format (eDrawings viewer is available as a free download here).  

Available Analysis Types: 

  • Linear Static Analysis 
  • Nonlinear Static Analysis 
  • Frequency Analysis 
  • Thermal Analysis 
  • Topology Studies 
  • Modal Time History Analysis 
  • Harmonic Analysis

SOLIDWORKS Simulation

Standard

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Standard is an intuitive virtual testing environment for static linear, time-based motion, and high-cycle fatigue simulation. It delivers a concurrent engineering approach, helping you know if your product will perform properly and how long it will last—during the design phase.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation

Professional

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional enables you to optimize your design, determine product mechanical resistance, product durability, topology, natural frequencies, and test heat transfer and buckling instabilities. It can also perform sequential multi-physics simulations.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation

Premium

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium lets you efficiently evaluate your designs for nonlinear and dynamic response, dynamic loading, and composite materials. SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium includes three advanced studies: Non-Linear Static, Non-Linear Dynamic, and Linear Dynamics.
