Upgrade Today & Boost Your Tool-Set
Upgrade from Standard to Premium

Building upon the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Professional, SOLIDWORKS Premium integrates powerful simulation analysis, design validation and ECAD/MCAD collaboration. Reverse engineering, advanced wire and pipe routing are also included in the Premium offering.

Upgrade from Professional to Premium

Advanced simulation capabilities in Premium allow users to analyse product performance in real world scenarios, motion and forces. Resolve any potential manufacturability issues prior to production with tolerance stack-up analysis tools which can be used throughout the design process.

Upgrade from Standard to Professional

SOLIDWORKS Professional extends the feature set offered by SOLIDWORKS Standard. Track all design changes with the integrated project management system offered in SOLIDWORKS Professional, be aware of any amendments upon each revision and work collaboratively on projects regardless of geographical location.

Upgrade your SOLIDWORKS package and have access to these tools and modules:

Included in SOLIDWORKS Premium and Professional
Visualize Standard - create stunning renders

Design and market products better by turning imagination into reality through impactful content and experiences. SOLIDWORKS Visualize products are created for anyone who needs professional photo-quality images, animations, and other 3D content in the fastest and easiest way possible. Help users and stakeholders select, validate, improve and sell design concepts earlier.

Adrian Taylor - Director, HDL CAD Solutions

"SOLIDWORKS Visualize does exactly what it says on the tin - the software enables us at HDL CAD Solutions to provide our clients with photo realistic visualisations along with high definition renders and animations of their products. This is an invaluable marketing tool to showcase products and services and has proved to be a great benefit to our clients."

PDM Standard – have access to the right data at the right time

SOLIDWORKS Product Data Management (PDM) help you get a handle on your engineering design documents. You can securely gather and index data for instant retrieval, eradicate version control problems and data loss. All PDM offerings are tightly integrated into SOLIDWORKS allowing your team to focus on design and innovation instead of time-consuming administration. SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard is a new data management solution for smaller workgroup environments in one geographic location and is included within SOLIDWORKS Professional and Premium. For larger teams, and if you are looking to streamline your workflow, then consider PDM Professional.

Graham Keating - PDM Product Manager, Solid Solutions

"The benefits of SOLIDWORKS 3D design is well proven but with the many interrelated parts, assemblies and drawings, one of the drawbacks is the explosion of data.

The more design changes you make, the larger your design team, the greater the chaos. SOLIDWORKS PDM gives you a centralised vault and design file management tools that enable you to eliminate non-productive time associated with manual data management and liberates your engineers time to focus on design and innovation."

Included in SOLIDWORKS Premium
Simulation – reduce prototypes, rework and delays

SOLIDWORKS Simulation linear stress analysis allows designers and engineers to validate product quality performance and safety throughout the design creation.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation integrates seamlessly with the design process, allowing you to run linear stress analysis directly from your SOLIDWORKS CAD model resulting in fewer costly prototypes, reduced rework and delays and greater time and cost efficiency.

David Cheer - Technical Developments Manager
Linear Composites Ltd

"Our projects results are critical and the consequences of failure would be very high. SOLIDWORKS allows us to dramatically reduce risk and gives us greater confidence, in a shorter amount of time. Linear Composites have to meet quality standards on all projects and follow indemnifications from insurers. With SOLIDWORKS we can quickly output reports and have complete traceability of our work."

Included in SOLIDWORKS Premium
Routing Tools – ideal for routing pipe/tubes/cables

SOLIDWORKS Premium allows you to quickly design and route electrical wiring, piping, tubing harnessing, cabling, and conduit. Thanks to the integrated nature of SOLIDWORKS these systems are added throughout the development process, saving time and rework costs, as well as making sure the efficiency of product assembly and subsequent serviceability. Make use of the electrical routing tools to flatten harness and learn exactly what lengths are required before starting the wiring process. You can also use the piping and tubing tools to simplify the design and documentation of routing for a wide range of systems and applications.

Included in SOLIDWORKS Premium
Kinematic Motion Analysis – evaluate your product performance

Easily evaluate how your product will perform and move throughout its operational cycle with motion analysis using SOLIDWORKS Simulation.

Visualise your product moving as it would in the real world and measure the forces and loads on your design. Plus, use the data to correctly size motors and create the ‘correct’ mechanism to ensure performance, product quality, and safety.

Included in SOLIDWORKS Premium
Surface Flatten

SOLIDWORKS Premium has advanced surface flattening capability, making it easier to create a 2D version of virtually any face. This is ideal for when a 2D DXF is required for machining operations.

Easily identify areas of high stress by showing the deformation plot and easily add relief cuts when necessary.

Included in SOLIDWORKS Premium and Professional
Toolbox & Smart Fasteners – improve efficiency

Increase productivity and save time with the extensive range of common part and component models available in SOLIDWORKS Toolbox.

No more thumbing through parts catalogues to check values and specifications. No more fiddling to make pieces fit into your model. No more stacking one-washer-one-bolt-one-nut at a time. With SOLIDWORKS Toolbox you have instant access to an entire encyclopedia of standard components. Simply drag and drop any component you need and use the configuration options to select the exact size and length you need. Or better yet, make use of smart fasteners to automatically populate any hole wizard holes with the relevant fastener.
